Joy Alexis arrived!

I'll post full details soon (I have been trying to catch up with some other things first and feel like I should be caught up soon), but I wanted to share the news... Joy was born on the 22nd just before 6 am and after a labor that lasted just over 6 hours total. I'm in incredible pain but just so happy that she is finally here and healthy! We are totally in love with her!

I'm in love with her, too!! She is such an adorable little package of girly cuteness!! I am so happy I got to see you and meet her! You guys make beautiful offspring.

<3 ya

P.S. Don't forget to send in your next meal order. You can request a home-cooked meal or something from your favorite restaurant. I expect you to call or text me, okay?!

This is wonderful! Six hours...not bad! February is an excellent month to give birth.

Now, take your stool softeners. Get yourself some witch hazel in a bottle to really soak those tucks pads. Enjoy your epi-spray. Don't be embarrassed to stuff maxi pads down your shirt or a pair of kitchen towels. Don't pump until completely empty...trust me on this.

And cuddle her up as much as possible. My oldest turned 17 on the 23rd and the cuddling doesn't last.
