Dear Baby: Welcome, Emmy June

Dear baby,

You were born on Monday, October 1, 2012. You weighed 8 pounds 6 ounces and were 20 1/2 inches long. Giving birth to you was the hardest thing I've ever done and being your Mama is the most rewarding.

Here's what I've learned over the last nine days:

  • Breast-feeding is hard, man
  • Sleeping while you sleep is not only nice, it's essential
  • Business in the front, party in the back never looked so good on anyone
  • Home birth is a must and Midwives are amazing
  • Your father is some kind of baby-burping expert
  • You're perfect, and I've never loved anyone so much

Emmy's birth story will be up in a day or two, It's a doozie.
