Whoops! Sorry to leave everyone hanging! The full story will come later (hopefully this evening or tomorrow) but here is the long and short of it:
Eliza Claire was born at approximately 4:43 p.m. on Tuesday, March 27th, delivered by Daddy because the midwives did not make it in time!!!! She weighed 7 lbs., 9 oz. and was 19″ long (finally my short genes caught up with us).
As you can imagine it is quite the story and I’m working on it as we speak, in between taking care of this lovely new little girl.
In the meantime, please enjoy a picture to tide you over. Due to the circumstances surrounding her birth we did not get any pictures until much later in the day! I haven’t been able to get a really good one where she’s not looking off to the side but I will keep trying and post more when I have them.
P.S. — If anyone is reading this entry who feels I should’ve called to announce her birth to you in person, my apologies. The whole situation really turned us on our ears as we were obviously not planning an unattended home birth and then there was a cascade reaction of circumstances after that, including an ambulance ride and an overnight hospital stay. Eliza was very needy all day yesterday, in addition, so we just haven’t gotten to a lot of the stuff we’d planned to do, which includes phoning people to let them know she’s here!

I'm a native Californian who lives in Oklahoma. I'm a full-time student, pursuing a Bachelors in Anthropology, following which I hope to attain a Masters in Archaeology. I have three kids, one husband, no pets, and a lot of friends - most of whom live inside my computer. I love to read, write, watch tv (shut up, we can't all be brain surgeons), shop, and travel. I'm trying to set foot in all 50 states before I die. I have 38, so far. I love the Beatles and Maroon 5, and if you think those two things are incongruous, well, they are. But that's me. When I love something, I love it 100%. I don't do anything halfway. I want to know everything there is to know, so I'm trying to cram as much into my brain as I can in the short amount of time I'm allotted in this dimension.
