We welcomed Miriam Anne into our family yesterday, August 14 at 5:34 in the morning. Photo

She weighed in at a respectable 8lbs 2 oz, and then promptly pooped herself down half a pound. ;)
20 1/4 inches.
She looks like all the rest, most strongly resembling Oliver.  The fact that she is a girl is perfectly normal and doesn't feel "weird" at all.

However, Oliver did ask why we cut her penis off.

My insistence that we did NOT cut off ANYTHING fell on deaf, concerned three-year-old ears.

I will have to post the WHOLE story because it ended up being a story, but for today, I'll say, she was born at home, in the water, right where she belonged. Photo

She and God knew what I needed while I was busy trying to be the boss of things.

Like I said, it's a story, and I'll promise I'll share. But this mama is tired. And five children, as it turns out, is a lot.

So, maybe in the next few days I'll be able to put words into order to create a semblance out of what was an experience that I sincerely hope makes me a better, stronger person.

Pretty sure it will.
