my baby

I've been pretty busy lately taking care of this little lady. She was born on June 4th at 11:25 pm. She weighed 7 pounds and 15 ounces and was 20 inches long. I was in labor for three days and pushed for four hours straight. I never imagined that is how my labor would go, but I was able to do it without any pain medication and I avoided a c-section, which was my goal. She's beautiful and as healthy as they come. I probably won't be blogging as much for a while. Sleeping, eating, showering and taking care of my baby's needs are my priority and very time consuming these days. But the more I do blog the more likely it is that I'm getting the hang of this.

i'm doing something beautiful

I hope that my daughter will be like this child: compassionate and full of thoughtful questions and ideas.

photo of the week

My friend Josh took this photo of his fiancé, Susan, with a disposable camera while on a trip to Puerto Rico. It's such a cool shot and a great idea if you can't afford a waterproof camera.
