After what seems like forever, Baby L is finally here!
|Auntie Ethne is in love with little L!|
She decided that she was not about to wait a whole ‘nother week till Grizz’s scheduled c-section on the 2nd of November. Nope, she decided that October’s birthstone of pink tourmaline sounded better. *I agree COMPLETELY*. (In fact, it was the first thing I said when Slags called to tell me Grizz was in labor.) And at 8lb 7oz, if she had grown any bigger, Grizz would've been so top-heavy she wouldn't have been able to walk!
The delivery went relatively well, and very fast, and Slags and I hoofed our way down to visit straight away on Saturday. Oh, she’s beautiful! We took loads of pictures and a video and sent it, live, to Steph since she couldn’t be there, and I called her to give her the run-down when we left.

I helped Grizz try a few nursing positions, but little L kept wanting to fall asleep, so I sat that baby right up and we got her wide awake and looking around. Perfect for picture time! And then she ate a little more and took a good snooze. Life is rough when you’re one day old!
|What a perfect baby! Look at those lips!! And a perfect tiny arch of her eyebrows!!!|
Grizz’s mom, Claire, had arrived from our hometown just an hour or so before we did, via Amtrak, and you could see she was walking on Cloud 9 – a little grandbaby!
|I think baby feet are the cutest EVER!|
Seeing Grizz and Corey with their little princess was a joy to behold. I can’t wait to hold her again, and watch them as a family – at last! Love you three!
|Steph thought Corey looked like McDreamy!|
|Let's play a game of 'Who does baby L look like? Here's a pic of Grizz when she isn't all full of pregnancy hormones. I think L has Grizz's nose for sure!|
Even though you’re one of our most faithful followers, Grizz, now you’re not just a WOM, you’re a WOM-MOM! Welcome to motherhood. :)
