Sound the Trumpets, Release the Doves.....Our Miracle Girl is Here!

Without further delay, I would like to joyfully announce the arrival of our baby girl!

Prayers were answered!!! After the shortest induction, labor and delivery of mine lasting a total of only 3 hours, she arrived on Tuesday afternoon.  Safe and sound, weighing in at 7 lbs. 6 oz. and was 19 1/2 " long. 

You know I only use pen names on this blog, so her name will be Chica due to the fact that she is my youngest girl, and also the delicious cheeks where the 1st thing I noticed about her.  She is bringing chunky back! 

I have been wanting to let you all know she is here all week but with the chaos of 3 kids and getting home from the hospital, Chica's jaundice to deal with, nursing and pumping, nursing and pumping, nursing and pumping.....well, the week escaped me.  I am not sure how I will ever have another spare moment ever again to blog but I will promise to keep at it the best I can. 

I will give you a better birth story at some point, I promise.  For now I would like to relish in the fact that I have her in my life.  My heart has grown once again.  The love and gratefulness are indescribable.  She is healthy, I am ok and we are home!  To watch her bloom and grow is a privilege and it is an honor to be her Mama.

Enjoy the pics.  More story to come soon....or soonish, hopefully.  :)

Life goes on my friends.........and it is a beautiful thing!
