Finished: Baby

(Pictures SOON!)

Name: Iris Ellen

Birthday: October 18th, 2007

Weight: 10 lbs, 5 oz.

Length: 21 in.

Final Thoughts: The whole time I was pregnant, women who had already been through the whole childbearing process assured me that it would all be worth it when I had her. Since I was fairly miserable for most of my pregnancy, I kind of wanted to slap them. But guess what? It turns out they were right! I’m sure that isn’t shocking to anyone but me, but I may never get over my surprise. I was afraid I might not feel anything… instead, I feel everything.

What can I say? I’m in love!
