|One day old|
|1.5 days old - the eyes are finally open!|
|Holy cow have you ever seen a cuter baby?|
|Finally going home!|
My induction appointment was at 1:00 AM Tuesday. She was finally born at 11:49 PM on Tuesday. I really want to write and post a timeline/birth story, and I will give all ya'll the gory details then. But we both came out of it just fine (I've been surprised at how well I'm holding up - I think I took too much stock in everyone's birth horror stories!) - although I'm definitely running on fumes at the moment - and now we're all trying to get adjusted to life as a family of 4 (yes I count the dog).
We both just liked the name Julia, and Maslen is an old French name that means "little Thomas," which is my dad's name. He's been a phenomenal father to three daughters and I really wanted my child to honor him and carry on his name. We've been calling her Lia throughout the pregnancy but we're not sure whether Julia or Lia will stick. Either way. She's the most beautiful baby ever born and we can't stop looking at her. :)
Will post more when I get back on my feet a little.
