I am in perfect agreement with Anne of Green Gables that Cordelia is the best name. She will no doubt live up to it admirably. Congratulations, anotherpanacea and family!

AW YAY! She is so awesome already and I know you will be a fantastic dad. You are absolutely right to believe that she is cuter than other babies (I assume you are doing this); you have my permission to keep thinking that. Congratulations and very best wishes to your family!

Thanks everybody! Thanks Omiewise, for the post!

She was born on Saturday, 3/30/13. Here are some stats: 9lbs, 21.5 inches, and Apgar scores of 8 & 9.

And yes, she is the cutest baby EVAR! Apparently pre-mature cuteness is a side-effect of Cesarean sections: she didn't get squeezed very much. The hospital spent three days trying to induce, but labor wouldn't progress because Cordelia was face-up (occipital posterior) so we had to go all medical.

Other facts: that hat was crocheted by my sister-in-law while we were laboring. Or rather: made by my sister-in-law, it was.

We came home yesterday, and last night was really pretty mellow. It's weird, but I'd swear she'd sleep through the night if we didn't wake her up for feedings. I'm sure that won't last long, but so far CRM is pretty much the happiest baby I've ever met! (Other than Omiewise's Oliver of course....)

Oh, and doulas rock! Three days of non-judgmental support?!? Just wow.

Excellent work all around! I'm wishing a speedy recovery to mom and as much family bliss for all as can reasonably be expected.

another panacea, my newborn (b. 2/12/13) was the same way and I was super annoyed when the nurses made me wake her up to feed her. Unfortunately she no longer will sleep for such a long stretch without getting hungry... but I hope your baby's miraculous sleep continues.

welcome to the world, Cordelia!
