Baby love

Harper Isabel Corey was born at 12:02 p.m. Thursday at Alta Bates hospital in Berkeley. She weighed 7 pounds, 8 ounces and was 20.5 inches long.

We are so in love already. She is absolutely perfect. Everything people say about you don’t know how it feels until you hold your own baby is so true.

I will work on writing up the birth story soon. It is quite a story! It definitely defied expectations, but in the end we had exactly the natural birth we wanted.

Now I’m onto the adventure of breastfeeding, which might be the next hardest thing after childbirth.
