One week ago tonight, on my due date, I went to bed but never fell asleep because I was having contractions, and unlike before they kept coming regularly. 14 hours later, the doctor held up a pink little baby and Brian announced that we had a daughter, Cecilia Rose. She was 7lb. 9 oz. and 20 in. long, scored 9 on both Apgars, and was perfectly beautiful in every way.
Since last Monday we have been getting to know this precious little girl and soaking up every wonderful minute of it. We are tired but oh so happy. We just cannot believe how incredibly blessed we are to have this little girl in our lives.
