She's here! Harper is here! She was born on July 23rd, and my hospital room had a huge window where we could look out into the city. That day there were several 'pop-up' thunderstorms mixed with sunshine, so I'm SURE there was a rainbow somewhere that day, even though I could not leave the room to find it. After all our family had gone through this Summer, our rainbow was finally here--literally and figuratively.
Welcome little one!
This pregnancy & birth was easier than my first--I didn't gain as much weight, and it seemed to fly by. I was induced again, got the epidural after a couple of hours, took a nap, and when I woke up it was time! I pushed 4 times and Harper Elizabeth made her grand debut. She is precious, has a lot of hair that styles itself in an automatic mohawk (too cute!) and Avery just loves her. She actually cried when she met her for the first time in the hospital.
We praise God for another healthy girl! For those of you wondering, we won't be trying for a boy--Ross is great around women ; ).
