Eden River has Arrived

Birthday: November 11, 2007 at 1:48 PM

Weight: 7 lb, 6.5 oz

Length: 20 inches

So far, she's a great eater, sleeps a lot (almost all the time!).

She rarely opens her eyes. This pic is a bit blurry/fuzzy, but it's the best I can do right now since she is always dozing....So who do you think she looks like? I don't think she looks like either Amelie or Noah, and not sure how much she looks like either of her parents either?

Proud big sister. Amelie's been very helpful. When there's no more to do, she asks what can she do next? Noah is interested and curious about her, but he has a cold now, and is such a bulldozer that we can only let him touch her with one finger haha. But that's all her really wants to do anyway. So far, life for Noah hasn't changed at all, there just happens to be a baby in the house to comment on every now and then.

Brief birth story:
Water broke at 3:30 am, left for hospital at 4:30 am. A friend came to stay with Ami and Noah so they didn't have to be woken up. Arrived at hospital at 5:30 am. No real contractions until about 10:30 am, but still just moderate--no big deal. So, basically, labor didn't really start until about 11:00 am and she was born at 1:48 pm, so only about 2 hrs 45 min hard labor, which was really intense, but I did it, and now it's done and that's that! She's here, and she's healthy, and perfect, and Life...Goes....On!

Her name:
Eden -- as in Garden of peace, pleasure, tranquility, perfection)...
River -- as in "go with the flow," find your path of least resistance, and cut through rock when you need to....
