our daughter

after a very short labor (less than 8 hours!), norah christy golden was born on wednesday, march 7, 2012 at 1:08pm, weighing 7 lbs 11 oz and measuring 19 1/4 inches. we were in love with her immediately, and our lives will never be the same!

one of her first pictures with daddy in the delivery room:
cuddling with mama:first family photo:meeting grammy & pop for the first time:meeting nana & grandpa for the first time:going home:we had several visitors while we were in the hospital, and we have been so grateful for people bringing us meals since we've been home. we have been eating very well! norah & eva (the dog) meeting each other went better than i expected. norah doesn't seem to mind her bark, and eva hasn't been as jealous or acted out like i thought she might. i'm sure as norah gets bigger, they will become good friends! hanging out with daddy & eva:looking sweet:meeting uncle kevin & aunt andra for the first time:i am (sort of) getting used to getting up 2-3 times a night with norah. it is exhausting, but so very sweet. we feel very blessed!

people told me when I was pregnant that when Ruthie arrived I should sleep when she sleeps and I highly recommend it! Matt and I were in bed those first 4 or so weeks by 7 or 8 every night especially since I had to get up at 10 or 11 for another feeding. Norah is beautiful! Congratulations!

Congrats on a sweet baby girl. It is amazing how little sleep you get used to getting. Enjoy cuddles, let others help whatever way they will, and sleep when she sleeps. Lots of love from Patrick, Brooke, and Charles.

What a sweet post on your new family member! You are doing well in my book to have makeup and hair done every day! We hope hope to see her again soon:)
