Mother of the Bride Spot

Random thoughts on being a Mother of the Bride...although since we are now past The Wedding, perhaps this would be better titled Random Thoughts On Life In General...

Welcome to the World, Baby Girl!

She's here! Laura Indira (Jill says I am NOT allowed to call her "Indi") arrived today at 2:44 pm after a 6 hour labor. I don't have pictures yet -- what's up with that, Derrick? She weighed in at 5#10 oz, and 19 inches long.

Most importantly to this lactation consultant, she's nursing like a champ! No tongue tie... whew!

I can't wait to head to Naples to see her -- yes, she is a hurricane baby, but no, she isn't going to be named Laura Fay.

I also told Torrey she couldn't name a baby Fay. Fay Ray is simply too much to contemplate.

So yes, yet another August birthday. Another periodot. Guess I don't have to give Jill another peridot necklace -- she can just pull out the one I gave her for Deven!

I'm SO excited!!!!
