After 42 weeks and 3 days of pregnancy, and a lot of patience, Anneliese Claire was born!
And let me tell you… if you’re pregnant and want to go into labor, I figured it out.
It’s not walking, sex, castor oil, or spicy food.
It isn’t eggplant, acupressure, a special pizza, pineapples, or bouncing on a yoga ball.
I’ve been meaning to type up the whole big birth blog post for a while now, but my brain just isn’t in that mode right now. So until then, I’ll appease y’all with photos of my beautiful baby girl.

Here’s our first family photo, about an hour after her birth.
1 day old:
My favorite people!
So sweet, taking a nap.
And today, at 9 days old:
Thank you all for your VERY sweet comments, emails, tweets, etc over the last several weeks! I know I haven’t been the best at responding/replying (probably best at twitter these days, since I can tweet on my phone while I nurse) but I appreciate every word of excitement and encouragement you’ve shared with me.
