She’s here …

Hello, interweb! I have missed you! This is practically my first time on a computer in a week, so please excuse my absence. God, I missed being on a computer. That’s pretty lame, right? But I did.

Just a quickie post to let you know that our sweet baby girl arrived on schedule — when are scheduled C-section arrivals NOT on schedule, though? — on Wednesday, April 25, at 9:37 a.m. She is a tiny little peanut — compared to her brother, at least — and weighed just 7 lbs. 12 oz. at birth, and was 20.5 inches long.

She is absolute perfection, and we are unbelievably thrilled with her. She has a teeny rosebud mouth, her brother’s (and father’s) nose, and her tiny feet are as silky-soft as those chewy Big Foot candies. She only cries when she gets a diaper change, is hungry, or is taken off my chest. Oh, and she loves holding hands — well, holding fingers — so much that it has to be part of our latching-on routine, or she’s flailing around looking for a finger to hold.

More posts to come in the next few days. I have tons to say about the scheduled C-section, about breastfeeding the second time around, and about how much I’d forgotten about newborns in just 22 months.

Hint: I forgot a lot.
