I’m a momma!
Posted On February 11, 2008
Vera Jean Yoder was born at 12:05 this morning on the kitchen floor. 🙂
She weighs 8 lbs 10 oz, and is 19 inches long. She has a head full of dark hair (from her daddy I’m sure) and is just amazingly beautiful. I was in labor for a LONG time. I felt irregular contractions from 4am on Saturday… so that would make it… 43 hours? I pushed for one hour.
I have much more to share of course, but I am too distracted to do a really solid entry. I do have so much to say about it all though- what a ride!
Ok, and one picture of course. There will be more, but this is all I’ve really had time for between trying to rest and stuff.
Life is so amazing!

What a beautiful picture! How are you feeling? And, do you have help?
That was a very long labor – you must feel like you were run over by a truck! Kitchen floor? Why on earth? There’s a story there! She is a beautiful baby – Congratulations!!
She is beautiful, Grace. Congrats, Nolan has a new little friend to play with now, she is twice his size.
Happy Birthday, dear little Vera.
Classic photo, btw, of baby and dad doing the same thing. I’ve got one of Obeth and Tuula that I’ll show you. Awesome!
Ok I tried to post a comment but it didn’t work…
This is basically what it said:
AWESOME SHE’S SO BEAUTIFUL! Happy Birthday little sweet Vera-bean.
And I love the classic baby/dad photo. I’ve got one of Obeth and Tuula sleeping on the couch, both with their arms up like this. ADORABLE.

Congratulations Grace! I think it’s really inspiring that you didn’t give into societal pressures about how to give birth, and you did it the way that made you feel happy and comfortable. She looks happy and beautiful. (I did think it was going to be a girl) I can’t wait to see more pictures!
Aww, so we finally get to say hello and welcome to Vera! What a lovely little family you have made. Congratulations. 😀
