Meet Libby

Now that she's 20 days old, I think it's high time to finally introduce my precious daughter.

Born 9/1/10 at 6:09 PM

I've been delaying posting about Libby's birth until I finish writing her birth story, but it's taking me forever because I am trying to include all the details that I want to remember. And every time I consider sitting down to finish writing it, I realize I would rather sleep instead.

So until I get around to writing down the details, suffice it to say that my water broke in the middle of the night, I stayed home as long as possible, labored in the tub for 5 hours at the hospital (during which time I thought I might pass out from pain and exhaustion), pushed for 35 minutes, and had a healthy baby girl.

As hard as it is having a newborn, it's totally worth it when I look at this sweet face.
