Don't mind me. I'm typing with one hand and holding a hiccuping three-day-old with the other. I have a good feeling that this is a sign of our new lives together. We are home from the hospital, working on getting to know each other and hammering out a sleeping/feeding schedule we can all be happy with (so far, she's a better negotiator than me and Dan combined), but mostly we've been loving on our little daughter, Lana. Trust me, of all the tasks we have to do, loving Lana is by far the easiest.
Lana Jean Lenssen was born on June 18 at 9:36 pm. She weighed 8 lbs 6 oz and is 21.5 inches long. Yup, that's a pretty big baby, but very healthy and well, so I have no complaints. She took her sweet time getting here, but is certainly worth every minute. We had an amazing doctor and nursing staff that helped us both tremendously. Dan has also been wonderful. He helped deliver this wee one and has been a great daddy from the start.
My sister-in-law, Angela, has a great post and pictures on her blog (see her name on the list on the right) and we should have our hospital pics posted soon at www.pullmanhospital.org
I'm sure I'll post more later, as we seem to be taking a bazillion pictures. It just might take me a few tries to get proficient at blogging with one hand.
