My sister went into labor today at 11:30 and had her first daughter at 3:17PM. Her name is Sienna Catherine. She was 7lbs, 12 oz and her little head is covered with dark hair. Absolutely beautiful! My sister and brother-in-law had asked me if I wanted to be there, which I did, so I left work early. I have to say that it was the most beautiful thing I've ever seen. Her midwives forgot to take pictures, so I was running around with the camera and took (apparently) around 150 pictures. A ton of really good ones! I was in awe. I truly was. I'm still kind of speechless. I don't know how to describe it, but it was really beautiful. I hope we get to experience that in our future.
My name is Laura. I'm happily married with no children so far. My husband and I are working on that. I started my journey at 315 pounds, and am slowly but surely working my way down to 155. That's 160 pounds by goal of June of next year (re-visable, if necessary).
