Amelia Ann

I hope to be able to share the full story in the near future, but sleep is more precious at the moment and it is calling to me... I just wanted to give you all the quick update...

Amelia Ann Parsons has made her debut!  She is a perfectly healthy little girl with a full head of hair! Our little miracle was born February 11th at 12:28am.  She was 7 pounds 1.4 ounces and 18 3/4 inches long. 

I can't believe a week has gone by already!  We are still learning and figuring out our rhythm, but things are getting easier each day.  My body is slowly recovering from a 2nd degree tear from her arm wanting to come out at the same time as her head and a left over blood clot in my uterus.  She lost 10% of her birth weight in the first 4 days, but is gaining quickly now as she gets better at feeding each day.
