Our darling little GIRL, Adelaide [Middle Name Yet Unchosen] Heaton, arrived today at 3:38 p.m. I must confess that they have just given me an Ambien to help me sleep, and it's probably time for me to stop trying to blog before my ramblings become hallucinatory and I try to buy wildly expensive collectibles on Ebay (true story), I'll press through the wooze to say she weighed 7 pounds 5 ounces, was 20" long, has a little covering of short, dark hair...

Well, that was a bust. I fell asleep on the keyboard and the nurse later came to check on me and gently suggested it "looks like you're done with your computer?" I was so tired, after having been awake for 40 hours or so, and, you know, delivered a baby.
Here she is. Again, ignore the tired mama and focus on the beautiful baby. She's so cute and seems tiny to me, after her near-nine-pound brothers.
Yay, she's here!
