    Our baby girl has arrived!  I won't lie, I did check to make sure she was a she fairly soon after birth.    Gabriella made her debut yesterday, Feb 18, at 11:58 am (CST) and weighs 8 lbs 5 oz.   I told the midwife a few times that I had a feeling she wouldn't be as late as Joshua was and I was right, but barely.  Joshua was born 11 days past his due date, she was 10 days past hers!  I had an amazing birth at a local birth center.  My husband and I (mostly him) were able to catch her as she was born!  And we were home by 6 pm on the same day.  What a relief to be home so soon!  I feel like being home sooner is helping my recovery so much more.  The twins adore her already and Josh is adjusting.  I don't think he likes not being the baby, but he is interested in her.  
    I'm attaching a picture of her and Joshua.  My husband apparently ordered flowers about two weeks ago to be delivered today from Gabriella and there was a random rosebud in the box so he gave it to Josh who then "gave" it to Gabriella.    (Edited to actually attach the photo...  *sigh*)

    I am so happy for you and your family, congratulations!!!  She is perfect!!
    I had to laugh when you said you had to double check to see that she was, in fact, a girl!!!  After three boys, I was startled changing my daughter's diaper for the first month or so because "something" was missing... I was just so used to boys!!!
    I hope you are recovering well!  Enjoy these days :wub: !!

    Thank you everyone!    Definitely weird to change a girl diaper after 3 boys.  I keep thinking something is missing!
    I was pretty close to doing my own c-section, though.  I actually had an appt Tuesday morning and I was going to ask the midwife to do any and everything she could do to move things along, probably just a membrane sweep.  But luckily labor started a few hours earlier than my appt.   :lol:
