At 11:47 on Wednesday morning time stopped and our baby arrived. 7 pound 5 of utter perfection. Since then we have enjoyed the blissful still of our hospital room, only leaving it's walls today to return home.
Our visitors were few and our rest was plenty.
It took us a little while to name this golden treasure. For the first day of her life (and many days prior) I had my heart set of 'Flora'. In my mind she was a blond headed baby. In reality her head is covered in thick black hair and we decided she was an Elke.
Our most recent addition. Mysterious in every way.
We look forward to you revealing yourself to us, little darling.
I'm looking forward to sharing the story of her birth, the meeting of her siblings and what life is like as a family for 5- but for now i'm going to stare at her sweet face for a little bit longer.
