I’m Not Allowed to Post Yet, So We’ll Just Call This An Update

March 22, 2008

My midwife has banned me from posting until next week, so here’s an update that she will just have to live with.  =)

I had our sweet little baby on Tuesday afternoon with all the children outside playing with Grandpa, and a bunch of wonderful women (and one very yummy man) crammed into the bathroom with me.

THANK YOU all for the prayers and encouragement you sent for my fear and for the birth and for my hormonal ridiculousness.  They were answered far and away……. and then some.  It was my best birth ever!  I am excited to share it with you, and plan to once I am given the free and clear.  So check back early next week for when I am able to have all sorts of free time and energy to begin posting again.

I know you’re all on the edge of your seats.

    Yeah!!! Congratulations on your new bundle of joy. I am so glad that it all went well. I have been praying, and I figured that since it had been a while since your last post, you had a baby. Looking forward to hearing more details soon!

    I knew it!! I’m thrilled for you! And while I’m not into verbally lashing out at newly post-partum women, I was all set to read you the riot act for not including the baby’s name ……until I remembered you don’t post ANY of your children’s names! So I’m guessing I shouldn’t hold my breath for the announcement of the name of the newest olive plant. Still, it would be nice to know the gender. No pressure, just sayin. Glad you feel like posting…..er…..updating. Congratulations!
