Ivy Belle James was born at 6.20 this morning. It was a rough road- everything Alice wanted to avoid- gas and air, epidural, forceps. Mother and daughter are bruised and battered but otherwise in good shape. There are pictures on Facebook. |
Ivy is beautiful. Yes, I know, everybody says that about their own, but the truth is some babies are, some aren't, and Ivy definitely is.
People always want to know a baby's weight- can't think why (neither can Alice) but I inquired anyway. Ivy comes in at 7lb 6 oz.
I think I'll go pour myself a glass of wine.
