Welcome "Peach" McCarthy!

Born Monday, August 23, 2010 at 1:25 am
7 lbs even
19 inches long
pink and perfect
Well, she finally came! I act as if she was overdue, but she came 6 days before her due date. Labor was MUCH faster this time (6.5 hours versus 29.5 with The Frog), and we were only at the hospital 35 minutes before she arrived- she beat the midwife. I had no tearing, she's eating like a champ, and so far is a great sleeper. Hopefully she'll keep it up! I decided that here on out, she will be referred to as "Peach" on this blog.
The Frog frequently asks about what Peach is doing and where she is and doesn't seem to be too shocked thus far. He looks so cute when he stands with arms out in front and asks to hold her. We're still working on being gentle. :)
Don't let the dark circles under my eyes mislead you- I got to sleep most of the day after this picture was taken :D
Poor girl- infant carseats were not meant for newborns. This is Peach right after we put her in the car. As you can see, she's completely excited about seeing her new home for the first time.

Just for fun, I thought I'd include a baby pic of The Frog next to her for comparison.

What a cutie! Congratulations on your sweet baby girl!!! I'm so glad labor didn't last so long this time! Let us know if you need anything! I have a feeling this baby is coming any day now - Andy is convinced it will be tonight since more babies are supposedly born the night of a full moon :)!
