Update at 39 weeks and 5 days

Every post starts the same – at X weeks, baby girl is the size of such and such fruit or veggie and then I tell you her latest development…
Instead I thought I would share some pictures…

Our brand new baby girl Emily Rebecca

May I please introduce you all to Emily Rebecca who surprised us all Tuesday at 10pm by deciding to visit early.  I crashed early – 9pm and woke up at 10 when my water broke.  The first 2 contractions were 25 mns apart and then they were 8-10 minutes apart.  And a VERY fast 12 hours later, Emily was here!

This first picture was taken shortly after 10am on Wednesday February 25, 2009 – Emily’s birthday.  And the second we took this morning – it is our “replica” of the official hospital picture.  That is the outfit that her Daddy got her for hanukkah and it looks SO cute on her, if I do say so myself!

Today is our first day home and Emily is happily asleep in her daddy’s arms, which is her favorite place to be.  She is generally happy so far, but given that we are going to wake her up soon to eat, that could change 🙂

This weekend I will post more pictures and details and such!!
