Hello loves,
I am too tired to write much, but wanted to say how much I appreciate all of your notes and love.
Della is beautiful- with a complex forehead filled with expression, the strongest legs and arms, and just a miracle to me in every every way.
I promise to post the birth story sometime soon, but for now these photos from yesterday. My eyes are fine, red from sobbing with JOY and no small measure of relief that she was out and ok. Doug's too.

We go home on friday.
Happy birthday Sprogblogger and Alyssa!

Congratulations, she is lovely! Your comment "sobbing with JOY and no small measure of relief that she was out and ok" made me smile in memory - the exact same thing happened to me 3 years ago when my first was born (also a girl).

Try to imprint these first few new days in your brain - she will grow and change so quickly!!

All the best.

Congratulations!!! Your girl is so beautiful.

Look forward to hearing how everything went down, since it looks like you ended up with a section. Everyone is okay, and that's what counts.

Hey, Kate! You are someone's mother!

My eyes are filled with tears of joy for you and Doug at the sight of little Della. She is gorgeous and precious beyond measure.

As I promised it in our little personal note...

"...you are still an inspiration, I still want to know this story. I still want to eventually say, FUCK YEAH at the end of one day when you finally find your family."

I have been waiting since June of 2009 to say it.

FUCK YEAH!
