lola joon.


she's here and we're so happy.

7lbs 19 1/2inches
feb.18 2009 4:30am


merv picked her middle name. and we think it fits her perfectly. anyone remember the movie benny and joon?...


we've loved having all of the visitors and company. baby sarah instantly became a huge 3 month old. she says shes so happy to have another playmate her age. merv's sister becca left seattle at midnight and showed up 10 minutes before she was born.
the actual labor was quick & intense. i wasn't even sure i was actualy in labor after a week of mellow contractions and arah finally said, "i think you should go to the hospital," at about 1:30am. we got there close to 2am and she was born at 4:30am.

i did end up doing it all nat-u-ral, with a lot of help and support and motivation, soothing foot rubs and pressure point massages and throwing the stress releif balls at the dr's head.

her favorite activities include eating all of the time which she took right to. we expect her to double her weight in no time. :)

hey Julie, your baby was born on the 18th. yeasterday was the 19th.
That's what happens when you have a new baby, you get a little sleep deprived and your brain isn't quite what it used to be.
She is adorable by the way.
