She's here!

Baby girl Hanlon arrived at 9:16 am on 7/7/11 weighing 9 pounds even and measuring 20 3/4 inches long. She's perfect and we are so in love and, of course, think she's the cutest thing since sliced bread. No official name yet but probably Carys (rhymes with Paris; original Welsh spelling and comes from the word for 'love') Josephine. However, a dark horse of Eliana Jo has entered the ring and cast the tiniest shadow of doubt, so we'll see......

  12. Hi Lara,
    I just wanted you to know that I found your blog from Faces of Loss, after I lost my baby in the womb at 5 months. I have followed you through the past year and I wanted to say congratulations from the deepest fiber of my being. I understand what it's like to be on the other side of grief and I can't wait to get to be on your side of happiness when my delivery day comes. :) Thank you for your journey and sharing it with all of us. Congratulations Mama!
    Love, Melissa Montez (Fort Collins, CO)

  15. Absolutely gorgeous! I am so thrilled that you got your happy ending - she is perfect! Can't wait to hear the final name choice.

  16. Both names are nice, but I think I'm partial to Carys. Kind of a nod to Caleb since they both start with C. Congratulations and I'm waiting to hear how the C-section went. Was it as awful as I'm imagining?

I am scheduled to have my TAC placed on July 27th by Dr. Davis. Your tips and advice on the whole procedure has been my guide and I plan to follow every step. Congrats on your baby girl!
