Please welcome Elise Maya!

She was born at 11:02 a.m. Saturday, 2/27/10 and weighed 6 lbs, 12 oz. and was 19 3/4 inches long. The labor was 9 1/2 hours total, including just 13 minutes of pushing. I got my all natural waterbirth I wanted, and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. We got home today. Breastfeeding has been going amazing -- she was latched on right after she was born and continued to nurse for an hour-and-a-half. She's been going strong and I am feeding on demand. Upon discharge from the hospital, she had only lost one ounce since birth, which is awesome!

I will be typing up the birth story once things settle down and I'll also get some pics up.
