Baby Millie

Announcing...

Millie Lund




The cutest girl born this century, and the talk of the town with her extreme amounts of hair.

Here are her stats:

Weight: 7 lbs. 2 oz.
H
eight: 19 inches

A few more details for those interested:

I went into labor on my own on Saturday about noon. By 2pm, my contractions were less than 5 minutes apart, and so we took off to the hospital. By the time we got there, I was dilated to almost 6 cm., so they checked me in upstairs, and gave me an epidural. After that, it was smooth sailing. The whole experience was wonderful and just perfect. It was faster and smother than I imagined it would be, and I love this beautiful little girl more than I thought imaginable. Looking at my own baby pictures, little Millie looks pretty familiar. My hair was almost exactly the same color, thickness and length. And right now, I'm feeling like I could make a showing on the Biggest Loser. 13 lbs lost in 3 days could probably compete, right?

Wow. Those first family pictures are so adorable I'm not quite sure what to do with myself. She really is gorgeous, and in the first picture struck me as resembling you (and not the hair, because your hair doesn't look like that anymore). I'm so thrilled everything went well (holy short labor!) and that she is so gorgeous, and you are so gorgeous, and that she will have a gorgeous bird mobile as soon as I finish that. Looooooove you!

She is beautiful! And I love the name. Is there a middle name? You look amazing for just having given birth! I'm glad it wasn't too bad...you deserved a normal birth experience after such a hard pregnancy!

Catherine Hess said...

Congratulations! She is absolutely beautiful. Sounds like you were made for having babies after such a nice labor/delivery! I'm excited for you to be a mommy!

Congratulations! I love all the photos. You look lovely, even after labor. And thoroughly modern Millie is thoroughly marvelous.

That's exactly what my daughter looked like when she was born.

CHEERS!

YEAH!! I'm glad it was good for you. That makes it even easier to have a second one. Good job on losing 13 lbs! She is adorable! I hope she keeps that dark hair. It's gorgeous. I can't believe how good you look on that first after-birth picture. Are you sure you didn't do any primping? Congrats on delivering a perfect baby!
