Baby Audrey Marguerite Makes Her Debut!

Discussion started on

I'm a Gwamma for the third time! A week ahead of schedule thanks to Hurricane Hermine,  Audrey Marguerite decided to present us with a Labor Day reveal we will never forget. Baby Audrey dawdled for a bit and then, like a true diva, created drama by having her umbilical cord wrapped around her neck not once but twice! (Daughter said it looked like something out of "Alien").  Baby and Mommy are doing great, and all Audrey wants to do is drink boob and poop. Everyone should be home today, Big Brother Mikey is thrilled, and Gwamma is exhausted and happy.

 :yay Congratulations, LIMAMA! :newbaby

Vijaya, extreme low pressure is supposed to put people into labor--or so my OB explained when I gave birth five weeks early, after a hurricane.

Katie, that low pressure does a lot of other things too :( but having a new baby out in the world is one of the best things I've heard. PJ, I hope you will post a picture when you get a chance!

Yes, all the doctors and nurses said that when there are storms and hurricanes, it's the barometric pressure that causes some women into labor. In fact, yesterday was the tail end of Hurricane Hermine and three babies were born in the unit!

Here's a pix of Baby Audrey--the bow hat is adorable, and she has a full head of hair.

Thanks everyone. Mama and Baby just went up to bed. Audrey is a rockstar breastfeeder and was the talk of the maternity ward.
And to top it off---my middle daughter is also expecting, due on St. Patty's Day!  I will have four kids to care for as me and Gwampa are the caregivers while all their parents work. So Gwamma has to sell something besides her soul soon!
