Hey, I'm back after 8 months or so...

... thanks for the welcome Greta and Betsy (isn't it?)

I gave birth on September 9th, so our daughter is almost 4 months old. We decided to call her Hara (accent on last syllable, meaning Joy). (I'll soon post a link to photos.) She's not a fussy baby I think (slept through the night as soon as she was one month old) and smiles when we talk to her. Labor was on the long side (water broke at 6.30 am, Hara arrived at 10.00 pm) but all was natural and my friend Jenny who was finally snuck (is this a word?) in by my lady obstetrician was a great comfort and support to me.

Ok, I must go as my baby is calling... Will post soon OT. Lots of organizing going on here! For the moment I'm catching up reading posts posted since September.

Welcome back, Maria. Congratulations on the new baby! She sounds like a beautiful baby (sleeping through the night at 1 month - wow!).
