Here She Is!!!!

Much to tell you all, but a bit overwhelmed right now. Baby girl was born one week ago. She is a delightful baby. When she fusses, all she needs is a quick cuddle or a boob, and she's great. I want to protect her privacy, so will not be using her name here. I am posting a photo with her name embedded in it, but that way it's not in the text and not searchable.

I'm taking suggestions on what to call her here. I could just call her S, but certain bloggers (Aunt Becky ;-)) have said they find that annoying. So help me out here.

I will write more when I can. Enjoy the deliciousness.

BTW, I had decided on her second middle name before I found out that a certain famous mommy blogger had given her second daughter that name.

She is sooo beautiful. Congratulations again. Maybe call her MJ on the blog.

Absolutely gorgeous :-)

Heather said...

Oh Dora, she's gorgeous!!! And you look SO happy in the photos--who wouldn't be!! Delicious doesn't even begin to describe her, and I LOVE the names you've chosen! Congrats, Mama!!
Regarding what to refer to her as in your blog, I don't have any helpful suggestions...I was going to refer to my baby girl as K when she gets here, but maybe that's annoying too? No idea! :)

Quiet Dreams said...

I'm in agreement with the rest: she's gorgeous. Gorgeous.

And re: the nickname for the blog, I think that one will come to you. If you're like other parents I know you may come up with a nickname (or seven) for her that you use in real life. One of those may be good for the blog.

We'll know who you're talking about until you find a name you're happy with if you just call her "the baby." :)

Dora,
Hoooooray! Congratulations on finally being able to meet your beautiful daughter!

I hope you're recovering and adjusting well, and that any help you're getting from your mom (or anyone else) is in fact helpful.

You could call her by a pseudonym that reflects her New York sassiness. Eloise? Or, as Quiet Dreams suggests, wait for something to emerge.

I just want to squish those cheeks.

Its nice to see you so very happy! I can't wait to hear your birth story, and I love her name. I think calling her S is just fine.

Beautiful girl. And I have to say, she looks like she's grown since I saw her last week. Is that possible?

Beautiful. Just Beautiful.

Something will come to you for a nickname. Just give it a little time. I'd suggest "sweet cheeks" right now....

Congrats again. Wish I could be there...

Oh Dora -- she is stunning. And, so are you by the way. She is clearly giving you such peace. You look perfect together. I love her name. Just love it. No great suggestions about screen name, but I'm sure someone's will work for you.
