Many thanks to Grandpa who was camera ready at the hospital. We couldn't wait to post these beautiful pictures of our new family member:
The one and only Holland Paige (to which my 11 year old Nephew says "why'd they name her that?"):
And the lovely family Michael, Jessica, Gwyneth and Holland the day after baby's birth.
Now how does a woman look that good the day after giving birth to a child? I must dig up a picture of myself the day after I gave birth because I swear I still had my gown on and looked like I had been run over by a bus!
If you can't tell, I am overcome with joy for them and look forward to cuddling a newborn baby in my arms again (a baby that I can give back when it starts to cry, that I do not have to nurse, and that I do not have to wake up with at 3am). Yes, my baby days are certainly over but I am delighted to live through Jessica. Thank you all for your kind comments and best wishes!
