She weighed 8 pounds even and is 21 inches long (which explains her talent for kicking my ribs while simultaneously head-butting my bladder).
Her mommy laughed in relief and her daddy cried with joy as she squawked her way into the world. And then we discovered (much to our surprise) that our Deuce was a girl!
She's basically the most gorgeous thing I've ever seen. She's so freaking perfect. I can't believe how in love with her we already are. And yes, she looks a lot like her sister Eliza. She is such a gift.
Thanks so much for all the e-mails, comments, and texts. We're still exhausted and overwhelmed and marveling at our good fortune.
We should get discharged tomorrow. Can't wait to take our new baby girl home with us.
