She's Here!

Shortly after I last posted, after walking the halls of the hospital and bouncing on the birthing ball, my contractions finally kicked in. It was exactly the birth that I wanted-no med's, no interventions. I was in labor for about 12 hours, and had her just before 11pm last night, after an hour or so of pushing. We are completely smitten, and I got NO sleep last night, because I just laid there and stared at her. Birth story to follow...
