And the world sighed


She is beautiful and she is here. After a long night and three hours of fitful sleep, Ella Kate made her debut at 8am this morning. My sister was amazing. She puts women on A Baby Story to shame. Not one scream, a few whimpers, and two full hours of pushing.

Needless to say I'm feeling a little wonky today. Underfed, underslept, but surprisingly full and awake. This morning I had a Lara Bar. So good. I bought a case of the Peanut Butter Cookie flavor a few weeks ago and am so glad I did. They are my official new favorite flavor. Lunch was a boring small salad and 20 minutes of sleep sitting up. Tonight I'm going to try out a brand of gluten free frozen chicken tenders and put myself to bed around 7. I have a long drive back to my coastal town tomorrow morning and then back here again on Friday afternoon. I don't mind the driving, but I do mind leaving my sister's side.

More to come...
