seriously, EVER

After an induction and eight hours of labor, Vesper Eileen Bedford entered the world at 5:52 pm yesterday, about the same time I burst into tears in a spasm of love and gratitude. She weighs 8 pounds 1 ounce, is 20 inches long, and has a head full of wavy black hair. We're head over heels in love, despite the fact that Rob is completely terrified about the fact of a daughter. Pretty sure I'll be the disciplinarian for this one.

More pictures to follow, more about her name and birth too. Blake is enthralled and picked out a sweet blankie for her (cute story comes with that), and everything about this labor and delivery were what I prayed for and asked prayer for: peaceful, healing, and calm. Also, epidurals are one of my most favorite things ever.

Audrey and Vesper... they just sound like a kick in the pants duo. I am already envisioning them having tea parties and playing little house on the prairie while the boys are shooting at them and totally ruin the seren e scene :)

can't wait to hear all of the stories that you have to tell!
