she’s here

After 18 hours of labor, failure to progress past 4 cm, and an eventual c-section, baby Bird is here. 8 lbs  3 oz, 21 inches long at 6pm yesterday. We are both doing great. She is just amazing. Fears 3, 6, 8, 9, and 10 were either realized or overcome, but nothing ended up being as big a deal as I made it in my head. I will post more about the birth in the next few days hopefully. We are very happy and very exhausted.

Merry Christmas!
