    She sent a vague text to Ana just saying that baby is here.

    (xp) Typing with one hand but I wanted to give you guys at least a quick update! Thanks for passing on my newsflash in the meantime, Kristen!

    Adair Lucille M_____ was born at 3:10pm on July 6 after about 24 hours of hard labor. It was a super intense birth, and I will write it all up in detail soon but suffice it to say we did manage to make it to the birth center as planned (just a couple of hours before the cutoff!) and the birth was entirely natural...and by far the hardest thing I have ever done in my entire life. I really don't think there are words. But we made it! And now we have a perfect, beautiful 8lb baby to show for it. (nobody can tell where she's hiding that weight...she looks much smaller!) We're doing great so far--Dad just ran out for tide-us-over diapers since her cloth ones are WAY too big, especially until her cord falls off. She has now nursed well twice, so so far so good on that front. I ended up with just a 1st degree (with a very slight +) tear, so that's a bit sore but overall I feel fine--just exhausted and blissed out on baby

    Here are a couple of pics...more when I have both hands free

    Some much needed sleep at the birth center

    Yippee and congrats! She's beautiful and I love the name. I have immense respect for anyone who labors that long and still gets the birth she planned on. Can't wait to hear more about it!

    Congrats Leigh on the arrival of your beautiful baby girl! I love the name you choose for her. Yay to making it into the birth center just before the cut off, phew, and experiencing the natural birth you had wanted.

    Wow..I am proud of you! I cannot imagine 24 hours of active labor. She is so adorable and so tiny.
