Virginia Mae Harvatine was born January 18, at home. She was 9 pounds even and 22 inches long. Labor was hard (I pushed for SIX hours) but I'm so glad we had her at home. It was definitely the right choice for us. Is anyone interested in hearing the birth story? I'd be happy to share if you want.
My mom came to town four days before Ginny was born so we had a nice little visit before the main event. My dad arrived a week later for a visit. Ginny is the first grandchild in my family so they are very excited.
We're all doing really well, enjoying a couple of weeks off for Harv. We're very tired but so happy to have our little girl here at last!
