she's here!

It's funny that the pregnancy ticker says 3 more days to go and my sweet baby has already been here for 7 days. All that worry over a c-section scheduled for this past Monday and we ended up having an early {surprise} one last Saturday. For once, I finally went into labor on my own.

I proudly introduce our baby girl {who shocked me both by coming early and by being a girl}...

Milla Jean
born 8.14.10
9 lbs, 6 oz 20.5 inches

As for her name, Milla we just found to be lovely. Jean is my mom's middle name, which happens to mean "God is gracious." He is, indeed.

I was not expecting it to be a girl either. I am glad that she came on her own. So, you did have a c-section? How are you recovering? She is beautiful!

I love the name Milla Jean. I think it is so sweet. How sweet that her middle name is your Mom's middle name.
