Norah Katherine Blakey

Norah Katherine Blakey was born on Thursday, July 3, at 10:38 pm.  She weighed 7 pounds, 13 ounces, and was 21 inches long. 
10 hours old. 

Crinkly skin still adjusting to our world.

We were surprised by how blond she is.  Her eyelashes are platinum, along with the downy lanugo that covers her ears, back, and chubby shoulders.  Her hair is sandy blond, and I'm curious to see how much it will change.

She was born two days after her due date, and I was having a difficult time remaining patient.  My body launched into labor on Thursday afternoon, we hurried to the hospital, and after seven hours (and a glorious planned epidural), she was in our arms.  Everything went wonderfully, and of course we absolutely love her.  More details and pictures coming soon!
