She’s here! Rosemarie Ellen was born on September 17th, 2014 at 8:41 pm, weighing in at 9 pounds 5 ounces and measuring 21.5 inches long. (I already posted quick updates on Facebook and Instagram, but had to make sure to update the blog as well!)
Rosemarie arrived healthy and perfect, and scored 9/9 on her Apgars despite a brief (but scary) complication during her delivery. And I’m doing great as well — up and around, cleared by the doctor to drive, and generally feeling better than anyone has any business feeling less than 48 hours after pushing out a 9+ pound baby.
Here’s one more photo, taken from the same angle as the photo from Lillian’s birth announcement post:
Couldn’t resist, and I love comparing the two baby pictures — I think they look a lot alike! Although Rosemarie’s hair seems to be darker than the blondish wisps Lillian was born with (which eventually turned red) so it’ll be interesting to see how that changes as she grows.
Anyway, just wanted to post this quick update. We’re getting ready to leave the hospital in a bit, so more details and pictures to follow shortly!
