Magnolia June Meynders

Happy birthday to my sweet little Maggie.
She was born, today.
Born at home (yes, on purpose).
5:47 AM
10 lbs 15 oz. (no, I did not tare) 
21.5 in long.
She looks a little like Lily did when she was born, once her face gets a little less swollen, we'll be able to tell a little more.

So chunky. So sweet. I am so happy she is here.
I'll be back soon-ish, with the whole story, but for now I gots a bebe to snuggle and sniff.

Yay, I am so happy for you. Her name is perfection. I had my baby a little over a year ago 10 days late and at home. He was only 10 5 though. Have snuggling your cutie!
