Haley Kay Cowart is Here!

Haley Kay Cowart arrived yesterday, May 22, at 4:24 p.m. One day before her due date. She was 8 lb, 2 1/2 ounces and 20 3/4 inches long. I am starting to write out the birth story, but it may take a few days to get my mind around it and gather the facts (didn't keep track like I did w/Claire's birth, so I'm relying on other sources for some of the specifics). In the meantime, here are a few pictures to keep the curious satiated.Mommy & Haley 7:17 p.m. 3 hours postpartum.

So far, Haley is sweet and mild-mannered. She "mews" like a kitten, which is a welcome change to the adult-sized yowl I've come to know as Claire's cry. I'll take that meow any day! It is too precious. She is nursing well and if I'm not mistaken, all bodily functions have "functioned" as of last night. Barb laughs and says the orfaces are present and accounted for, or open for business, or something like that. Both of us are doing well, and I'm quite happy to be on this side of the birth experience!
