She’s Here!

So happy to (belatedly) announce our daughter’s arrival! She almost arrived on her due date- I had to head to the hospital after work on Monday the 14th instead of writing my 40 week bump update post! (I did get the picture taken though!!! I’ll have to share when I have two minutes to rub together…)

After being in not-so-bad labor all day Monday while working, and about 13 hours of less-than-fun labor at the hospital, at 7:28 am on Tuesday, October 15th, miss Effie Jeanne was born! She weighed in at 7 lb 12 oz, and measured 19 1/2 inches long. And she was- and is- absolutely perfect.

Her name, Effie Jeanne, comes from family names. Effie was B’s sweet grandmother‘s name on his dad’s side. Jeanne (pronounced Jean) is my mom’s first name, and also my middle name (aka, the J in “KJ.”) Baby girl was also born on her grandma’s (B’s mom’s) half birthday!

We’ve been trying to figure out our new lives as parents and while I won’t lie- it’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done- it’s also the most amazing and rewarding experience. I love this little girl so much!

She’s so sassy and adorable and sweet… and looks EXACTLY like her dad. Good thing I think he’s good looking! I just love staring at this sweet face every day.

I will come back and update soon! Thanks for all the love via twitter, instagram, and facebook!
