our sweet tiny girl, greta eloise, is here after a long, amazing and intense birth at home. she is beyond incredible. i understand why people just give the statistics (born 1/17, 5:45 am, 7 lbs, 5 ounces, 20 inches long, mom and baby both doing well) and just leave it at that, because really, there are no adequate words. we are all completely swimming in baby bliss, including a big sister who had always insisted that she did not ever want to be a big sister. i don't think i could ask for anything more, ever again.
