Willow Elizabeth entered this world, 50 minutes into the month of September.

7 lb 5 oz, 19 and 3/4 in

So, this labor lasted a bit longer than my first (10 hours compared to 3).  Overall, I feel as though I am recovering from this delivery faster than my first.  The hardest adjustment has been keeping up and reconnecting with my 19-month-old, who’s whole world has just been turned upside-down.  She is already being a very helpful big sister, although she commandeered a couple pacifiers (this coming from a girl who wouldn’t take a pacifier…ever).  She rocks her baby sister in the swing, jams pacifiers in her mouth, and wants to hold her when she cries.  She loves rubbing her head and face, too.
