Cutest Tree Frog in all the land...

Someday….I will be able to get back to this blog.  Until then, I leave you with a picture of Aibhilín’s first Halloween.  She was the cutest Tree Frog ever!

blog changes…

Hey folks…so having a baby takes up a lot of time.  Who knew??

I’ve decided to change the title of my blog from “The Long and Winding Road…” to “Here Comes the Sun”.  Still, a Beatles song, but I think it reflects the point I’m at in my life a bit better than the previous song.  At this point, I’ve gotten my sunshine, though I know if I ever want another child, the struggle will start all over again.  But, I’m so happy that I got my little Aibhilín.  She is the best baby in the whole wide world, and the cutest.

I hope I can keep this blog going.  Until my next post, I leave you with the words to Here Comes the Sun:

Here comes the sun, here comes the sun,
and I say it’s all right

Little darling, it’s been a long cold lonely winter
Little darling, it feels like years since it’s been here
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
and I say it’s all right

Little darling, the smiles returning to the faces
Little darling, it seems like years since it’s been here
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
and I say it’s all right

Sun, sun, sun, here it comes…
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes…
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes…
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes…
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes…

Little darling, I feel that ice is slowly melting
Little darling, it seems like years since it’s been clear
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun,
and I say it’s all right
It’s all right

introducing…

Hey folks…a quick post to let you know: I had my baby!   I went in for my regular check up on Monday, and ended up being admitted, induced and then an emergency c-section yesterday.  More details will come later.  Basically baby’s heartbeat kept dropping too low so they needed to get HER out quick (yes, a little girl).  After birth she was still having some heart issues, so she’s been in NICU since then.  I’ve only seen her for about 5 seconds which has been very very hard for me, but she is doing well and they think she’ll be in the room with me by afternoon 🙂

So, the stats:

7 lbs 15.9 oz

21″ long

born at 2:59 pm on February 8th, 2011

Her name is: Aibhilin Gladys (pronounced Ayv-leen).  It is a Gaelic name meaning “longed for child”, we thought that was pretty perfect.  Her middle name, Gladys was my great grandma’s name.

Okay, I will post all the details when I’m more coherent and in less pain.  We do have pictures, but I’m on my husbands computer and I don’t know where he put them.

 

Love to you all!
