    Hello Everyone!

    Since everyone has so kindly asked and remembered over the months that we were expecting, Im ecstatic to announce.

    That Ayla was born at 6lb 9oz / 19 inches, full term ..last night at 825pm

    (anybody know the various zodiac / chinese astrology signs?)

    Thanks for all the support over the months!

    I have a few pics at the latest hub.

    http:   //hubpages.com/hub/From-Water-Broke-to-Hospital-Stay-Birth-the-other-view




    to all 60dcers - days leading up to birth kept me from a final announcement/conclusion post - when I get my back to my office (in hospital til monday) all challengers will get a free years hosting from my reseller account - you all do an amazing job stepping out of your comfort zone I really appreciated the camaraderie as we were dealing with small stresses getting closer to the due date.

        sunforgedposted 11 years agoin reply to this

        Thanks! She does look surprisingly human! She can grab and lift her head up too ...apparently thats not the norm for a 3 day old?

          IzzyMposted 10 years agoin reply to this

          Nope not the norm, but her dad isn't exactly normal so what did you expect? She's probably a genius!
          Actually in all seriousness babies this young can't support their head but no-one says they can't try!

      So how's the feeding going?  I have a lot of experience with infant feeding and swallowing.  Not a lactation expert however.

      1. sunforged profile image74
        sunforgedposted 11 years agoin reply to this

        She is eating! we will all probably be released tomorrow - 4 nights in recliners and floors will not be missed

          rmcrayneposted 11 years agoin reply to this

          Outstanding!  Ayla may just have been tired!  We mistakenly assume the baby is passive in the birth process, which is far from true!  (I have a great translation from Italian of a conference presentation by Dr. Milani-Comparetti on this topic.  So many hub topics, so little time!)  How exciting to go home for the first time with your family.

      Dropping in to add my congrats, SF - better late than never.

      You're probably now dealing with that somewhat scary feeling that the two of you are on your own now to look after this gorgeous, delicate creature - no more doctors and nurses. Don't panic, you can do it!
