It's a girl!
Josephine Shai ("Josie") was born this morning at 7:19am after a speedy 7 hour labor and 4 pushes.
6 pounds 5 ounces
18 and 1/2 inches long
She is adorable and teeny tiny and I was shocked when she came out looking so petite. So much for OB estimates, huh?
She brought Gabe a train set as a gift, and we sang her happy birthday and ate cake, and at the end of it all, Gabe proclaimed, "I like Josie!" Apparently, his love can be bought. At least for a while. We'll have to keep the cupcakes coming.
Everything is wonderful, I feel great, Josh and I are bursting with joy, and I can't believe she is a girl! I can't believe I have two kids! I can't believe I love her so much already! Life doesn't more precious or more amazing than this.
