I had a baby today.

IT'S A GIRL!

Holly Geraldine born at 10:06 am after 8 hours of labor -- 8 lbs 4 oz 20.5 inches (longer and skinnier than I expected!).

She looks exactly like Robin did as a newborn, but duskier skin and darker hair. She has already nursed about a zillion times and has made 2 enormous poops in her short life.

I will post about the birth soon, maybe? I feel like I should take some time to process before I write about it, although I will say that YES it was shorter, YES it was intense, and YES birth still hurts like hell. I feel great, though, and didn't tear at ALL (wooo!!!).

Holly is a name we liked. Geraldine is for Brian's grandmother. Robin has already given her many kisses and shared nanas with her. But she was pissed when Brian took her back for her nap and I didn't come, nor did BABY 'OLLY!

It's all snowy out and everyone is sleeping but me.
pics and deets soon!!

I need a birth picture fix, so until you post pictures of Holly and/or her birth, I'll continue to watch Robin's birth video on OTM ;-)

Congratulations! I love the name.

I had coffee w/ a pregnant friend today and I remember thinking, "Hmm, no news from Lauren on lj, wonder if she had the baby..."

Haha, Baby 'Olly. Congratulations on another girl! Coming from a family of mostly sisters, I can say that sisters rock.
