Reasons to get out of bed…

It’s a girl!

She was born on June 3rd at 8:53 pm, weighing 7 lbs 14 oz and measuring 20.5 inches!

I had been planning to update before I went to the hospital – it was on my “pre-hospital to do list!” But I didn’t really realize I was in labor until way too late! Nothing on the list got done except making sure the cats had water and food… and T did those things! I promise to share my labor story when I’m typing with both hands though.

I’m not sure how I feel about sharing her name though… it’s one of those weird privacy things (and I watch too much Criminal Minds…so of course I worry about weird ways to kidnap…). I’m debating, should I:

  • use her initial, like I do with T
  • use a different nickname from what we actually call her (her name has about 6 plausible nicknames)
  • just call her “baby girl?”

But all is well and I’m madly in love with her, no matter what I might have said before.
