The Name

First, I want to apologize for making you all wait so long to find out her name, but the hospital blocked Blogger for some reason. Also photobucket, so I couldn't upload photos either.

Nora Frances
June 25th, 2009
7lb, 8oz, 21in.






I am ashamed to say that it did not even occur to me to bring Mr. Pickles to the hospital, but I'm sure he'll make an appearance in later, better pictures of Nora. There are better pictures, but they require finding cables and such, so that's out right now.

And now Jack is requiring attention, so I'll have to wait to write about Nora's birth story. (short version: FIVE HOURS. She is TOTALLY forgiven for being late.)

Thanks to everyone for your thoughts, prayers, and good wishes. I love the internet so much.

I have saved this in my Google Reader for an eternity because I wanted to remember to leave a comment saying how very much I LOVE Nora's name. My father's youngest brother has seven children, all w/ "N" names (I know!) and they finally used Nora with the newest one and I was thrilled!

I don't know if you know who the musician Richard Shindell is, but he has recorded a really beautiful song titled, "Nora," though I don't know if he wrote it or just covered it. It may be worth checking out the next time you are playing around in the iTunes store - you will have extra time again one of these days!
