My baby has traits!

As of yesterday, we have baby! Details are all over G+, but here are some more:

This is a very adorable little girl, with a full head of dark hair, dark grey eyes (that may change), amazingly soft slightly furry bits, and loooooooong limbs. Also long toes. She is a wonderful little monkey child, and much less cone headed than I was expecting.

So far she is sleepier than she is hungry, but when she does decide she's hungry she gets right down to it with great energy and focus. She seems fond of swaddling and being held.

I may have more reportage later, when I have had some sleep.

Yay! Baby! Congratulations! I'm glad both of you are well and happy.

Swaddling, feeding, sleeping - perfect baby!

Pix?

Soon! Soon! I am backing them up as we speak. Editing to postable size shortly, and posting shortly thereafter.

so much joy for you.
so much love for this post.

congratulations, deep and warm and quiet (sh! don't wake the baby...)

Hooray! Congratulations!

(She was held tightly swaddled by your abdomen for 9 months, so being held and swaddled are clearly going to recall comforting memories for her.:)

Oh yes. Air is new and rather alarming.

Congratulations on being an evolutionary success! :)

Congratulations! And I hope you can get some sleep...

It can only get better from last night. I couldn't stand up and I had nurses coming in to check on me or the baby or the roommate every hour or so. Got about 40 minutes of sleep, and that not all at once. Today I had a nap! And the roommate got transferred! And I'm not attached to any tubes or anything, so I require much less checking on! It will be glorious. And tomorrow morning we go home.

Congratulations again.

I hope you get the sleep and rest you need.

I keep thinking of God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater:

Hello, babies. Welcome to Earth. It's hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It's round and wet and crowded. At the outside, babies, you've got about a hundred years here. There's only one rule that I know of, babies — "God damn it, you've got to be kind."

I mean, you knew she had to have traits, but it's so much nicer to get to settle in and figure out what some of them are. I'm so glad, and I look forward to further reportage.

Exactly!

I cannot get over these toes. These toes are so awesome. And she smells like Andres! I didn't know she was going to smell like us too!
