Quick Personal Update

Please Note:  This post discusses my pregnancy.  If you are not in the space to read this today, please skip this post.  I completely understand and will not be offended if you choose not to read it.

I’ve already posted on my Facebook and Twitter, but I realize some of you only read the blog and don’t participate in social media.  Tom and I wanted to announce the birth of our daughter.  She was born last Thursday, December 10 at 4:21am, weighing 9 pounds, 13.5 ounces and measuring 21.5″.  I gave birth to her via c-section after laboring for 12 hours and pushing for about 4.  She was just too big to come out on her own!

We’ve made the decision not to publish her full name or to post pics publicly online- not even on our personal Facebook profiles.  So we’ll just refer to her as “CJ.”.  We’re doing this because we don’t want to create a digital footprint for our daughter at such a young age.  We hope you understand!

Thanks for all your support the last few months.  As I’ve said before, this blog will not become a “mommy blog.”  It will continue to be a place of encouragement for those of you still hoping for your BFP.   My husband and I pray for all of you often, many of you by name, and we look forward to one day celebrating your BFPs, too.
