The baby is here - finally!  She ended up being a week late and was born a
day before mom was supposed to be induced.  After an extremely short labor
and two pushes, Willow was born at 12:23 am on August 12.   Meconium from
baby and heavy maternal bleeding issues added a bit of anxiety to the event.
She weighed 6 pounds 8 ounces and was 19 inches long.  Mom and baby are both
fit as a fiddle at this point.  Dad and big brother are just smitten with
her.  So far, she is a very mellow baby.  Today I had to go shopping for
newborn clothes since everything we bought before hand was 0 to 3 months and
was far too big.  She really needs newborn sizes for a while.

It has sure been a fast and furious couple of weeks.  We now have one more
August birthday to celebrate.  My son and his family from Florida (my first
grand daughter included) are visiting both families this week which will
encompass both weekends.  If the planets align appropriately, I may get a
few pictures of all three of my grandchildren at once!  My son moved to
Florida 13 years ago and hasn't been back since.  We generally go there
since we have more family there.  He is spending the weekend with us while
his wife and daughter are in the Poconos with her family.  He will join them
there on Monday.  It is so nice to have him here.  It sure has been busy
with the baby only being a few days old and trying to help my daughter while
trying to spend as much time with my son as I can.  I guess it keeps you
young!

I have quilts all planned for the new baby and hope to start on them right
after Labor day since I am committed every day until then.  I have all the
fabrics which are already washed so I am ready to go.  I have a web page
almost done for the new baby and will make sure to post pictures of her
quilts and crocheted blankies.

I hope everyone has been well - you are always in my prayers and good
thoughts.  I hope to get caught up on the postings in the next few days.

Congratulations, Alice! :D That's a very healthy size -- only half a
pound less than each of my girls 30+ years ago. <G> Can't wait to see
photos!

Golly Alice, we have all been on pins and needles wondering how things were
going.  Congratulations to you all and welcome to Willow.  May she have
a long and happy life.  Glad you are getting a chance to visit with your
son.  You sure are one busy gal.
Hugs,  Taria

ooh, congratulations, glad she avoided a c-section (am I right in
thinking you said a while back it was 50/50), my little one is almost 3
months old and still wearing newborn stuff and not looking like she's
about to grow out of them.

cheers
Anne

Congratulations, Alice. I can only imagine how much joy and e***ment
is around your household about now!
We have about 8 weeks to go before ours gets here.

Thanks to all for the kind words and good wishes.  My DD called this morning
saying that Willow is so much more comfortable in the newborn clothes.  I
got her some onsies with long sleeves that have mittens since she has been
scratching her face.  She likes to sleep with her hands near her face for
some reason.  She may be trying to find her thumb.  But the new duds did the
trick.  She's not fighting with sleeves that came down to her knees.  Now
she needs to find a bottle *** that gives her the proper flow of milk.
DD wants to try the Playtex nurser system which worked very well for my
grandson.  May help with her hiccups too which she has had since before she
was born.  Seems like DD is much more comfortable and confident with the
second one which is nice to see. She's not freaking out at every little
sound or issue.

Congratulations to all! Such a pretty name for a little girl.
Every country seems to have special things that "everybody knows" are
the right way to handle babies. Never having given birth in Germany, I
was surprised to find out that babies (older than 2 weeks) are given
fennel tea to soothe and reduce gas. Comes in little packets, just add
warm water.
