The Pregnant Waddle

Pre-Pregnancy Weight Just Around the Corner (It's Trying to Run and Hide)

She's here, and she's beautiful!

Meet Ngaire:

She was born July 18 at 3:41 p.m. after a seven-and-a-half-hour labor. She weighed 8.5 pounds at birth, lost 8 ounces in her first day, and gained 5 back within her first four days of life, which will give you an idea of how much she's been eating.

Her name is a Maori word meaning "silver fern," and is pronounced "NI ree" (rhymes with fiery). We named her after an old family friend of Husbandlet's.

I have so much to write about, but I fear that the combination of baby-adoring and learning to type one-handed while nursing may cut down on blogging time for awhile. Thank you for checking in on me!

Yay! She's lovely.

Don't worry you'll get used to nursing and typing soon enough. :)

Congratulations! What a cutie.

I never did figure out nursing and typing. Maybe if I had gotten that sling to work...

I showed Suzan Ngaire's picture last night. "NIGH, NIGH, NIGH" was my reward. And this morning I don't know what made her think of it but the broken record started again. "NIGH, NIGH, NIGH." So we had to come look at her picture again. SUCH a punishment! ;p Sure hope we can come see (I mean HOLD) her before too long.

Yeah! I was hoping your blog silence for a week or so meant new baby! She's a beauty. I can't wait to read about your adventures as a mom. And while blogging and nursing is pretty difficult, you'll learn how to blog while she's asleep on you. :-) Congratulations!!
