We now have a picture of Eric holding each of our little "peanuts" like this.

More details to come...

Hello world!

We did it! Anna Rebecca Hanson (who we'll call Becca) came at 2:25pm today, all 9 lbs of her! Didn't know I had that in me! (Literally...heh heh heh...)

About 2 1/2 hours of real, honest to goodness, hunkered down, active labor where I needed to focus on nothing but labor.

  • 9 lbs, 21 1/2 inches (after babies that were 6 lbs 10 oz, 7 lbs 13 oz, and 7 lbs 10 oz!)
  • A fair amount of dark hair (that will turn light in no time if she follows in her sisters footsteps)
  • Long fingers!
  • Chubby legs & thighs & face :D

Pictures and more details to come...

I really like sleep. Really. And I can fall asleep in no time flat. So the fact that I'm awake at 3am and have been for the last hour seems to be a good sign -- for having a baby anyway!

Here's hoping that my next posting is to announce the arrival of a sweet new baby.

WARNING: If you're squeamish or anti-details, just wait for the next post with pictures.

Update 8:39am -- Pretty regularly six minutes apart since 2 am. Lost my mucus plug around 3am. Did dishes, made granola, and played tetris around contractions. Slept around contractions from 6am-8am. 8:30am, bloody show. Contractions maybe moving more toward 3 minutes apart. Woohoo!!!!

Guitar Tips?

Hey, so do any of you play guitar? Eric and I both want to learn and are trying to figure out what kind of guitar we should buy and what method books are good. And what kind of prices would we be talking?

I love having friends to turn to for stuff like this!

For anyone interested, here's the link for my homeschooling blog. I just posted some really fun links about the human heart.
