Thank you to everyone for the kind words of congratulations - and thank you to Ash for posting the announcement! Your messages brought tears to my eyes (though I will say that is really easy to do today!).

We are incredibly proud to announce the birth of our daughter, Eliza Margaret!! She was born Saturday, November 14th at 7:16am after 16 hours of labor. She weighed 8 lbs 5 ozs at birth and she is 20" long. She has a nice little bit of hair, and the cutest little lips. WE ARE IN LOVE! She is absolutely perfect, and it is SO hard to believe that she is all ours (and that I pushed her out of me!!! ;) I want to get her entire birth story out in writing, but it will have to wait until later. She is requesting all of my attention at the moment, which I am happy to give her :-) The short story is this: I labored w/o drugs for 13 hours, and then got an epi because my labor stalled - they think ctxs became irregular b/c Eliza was posterior - I was complete an hour after the epi (and an hour nap), and then pushed her out in 1 hr 45 mins (she had turned by the time she came out), when I got to pull her tiny body out and onto my chest. It was a magical moment. I am so proud of myself!!

Two pics attached - sorry to FB folks, they are the same pics!!
