Birth Announcement



Teresa Grace was born May 28th at 1:35 am.
She weighed 10 pounds, 15 ounces.
No, that is not a typo. :)
21 inches long, headful of black, curly hair.
The birth was great, we got to stay at the birthing center and have our natural birth. We're both healthy, and she's nursing like a barracuda.
More pictures and details forthcoming in a couple of days. My mom got some great birth pictures, but I need to wait until my bottom is feeling more up to sitting at the computer,,,as you might imagine. :)

Oh, she's adorable! I am so happy to hear that she's finally here, that she's healthy and you are healthy and you got the natural birth you wanted! That is AWESOME!

I need your permission to use you as an inspiring example to my Childbirth students who all want to get a C-section when their doc tells them the baby is going to be "big"!!!!

She's beautiful, Melanie! I love the name! My biggest baby was my easiest birth; I think it has to do with how they come down the "canal." LOL
