Wee Sprite, born 3:23 a.m. 12/19/09, 8 lb 2 oz, 20 inches, via C-section. Mama, baby & Daddy all doing fine. Baby breastfed well & they (all three) were settling in to sleep when I left the hospital. (I’ve been up for more than 24 hours now – since 6-ish yesterday morning – so I’m going to sleep now. Try to get pics posted later – too sleepy to fit the cord into the phone.)
BTW, Outlaw Son was a wonderful partner for Knitting Sprite throughout labor, and Knitting Sprite was just superb in how she handled everything. And my deep, heartfelt thanks go out to Merrilynn, her midwife, Danny B, the stellar labor and delivery nurse, and Dr. Shimoda, who performed the surgery. The whole team was good, kind, and supportive, and made this the best experience it could possibly have been.
Boulder rocks! And so does my daughter.
