New Arrival...

I'm a little late posting this, but I've been a little busy! Things are starting to settle down a bit, or at least it seems like it, so here is the official announcement:

Amilia Gloriana was born at 12:42 am November 4, 2009 weighing 8 lbs 12 oz 21 inches long.

That's my biggest baby by close to a pound! I made Aaron nervous during delivery, he said he's never seen me in so much pain. I say he's seen me in as much pain 3 times before, he's just never heard me in so much pain haha. Anyway, apart from the pain everything went well and I'm feeling better emotionally than any previous birth. I think that's because I got out all the craziness during delivery...

Anyway, here's a picture, there are more up on facebook of course!

What a precious little thing. Blessings upon her, now and always.

It's amazing how babies who are late, slightly even, look SO much older! She practically looks like a 2 month old!!
She is absolutely wonderful!!! I am so happy for you all! Glad you are feeling refreshed and not depressed - yay for freedom!!!!!!!!

I agree with Lyds; she looks like my children at a few months! Of course, Savannah started in preemie clothes. But could she ROAR?!? We called her "The Great & Terrible Thunder Lizard!" LOL

Amilia is ADORABLE! All that downy dark hair...ah, I'm wistful. My babies are quite grown at 21, 16, & 13. Enjoy these precious days, Jul, they pass too quickly.

She will, of course, need all the Amelia Bedelia books now!! A budding bibliophile!!

Oh my goodness, she is soooo sweet Julie! I love her little mouth! :)
Glad to hear you are feeling good and things are settling well for you. I've been thinking about you lots and praying for these first initial sleepless nights. Let me know when I can visit...I picked up a little gift for her and I would love to see you guys. :)

Simply darling, Jul. What an adorable child. Amilia Gloriana.

Wow, sad to hear so much pain still, on the 4th child! My mom told me by that time, it was pretty easy going. But of course that could just be that I was #4.

Next time will be a snap for sure! ;-)
