I’m Hooked And I Can’t Stop Starin’

!@(DCP_0031.JPG popimg: “Sierra Nicole Smith”)I’m hooked and I can’t stop starin’, Look at those genes that she’s wearin’…

They’re all mine! Sierra Nicole Smith decided Wednesday evening after I got home from work, that she just couldn’t wait to meet her family that we’ve told her so much about. After a short nap (20 min) I got up to go to the washroom – when GUSH! My “membranes ruptured” (a nice way of saying my water broke). I’m rather tired, as we were discharged from the hospital yesterday afternoon, so I’ll keep this short (kinda like my new daughter). June 8, 2005 at 11:15 PM (after 5 hours of labour and 15 min of pushing) Sierra Nicole Smith popped into our world. I mean it literally – she almost went flying across the room – thankfully Johnny Bench* was there to catch her! She weighed in at 5.0 lbs, 18.5 inches long, and she has sandy blonde hair and blue eyes. We’re both doing well, and we’ll update you more later in the week (after all of the grandparents go home).

  7. *Brilliant*

    That’s so damn cool Marie. Even though I’ve been regarding your new arrival as “Future Hockey Player”, it doesn’t matter.

    As long as She’s *healthy*. That’s all that matters.

    Congratulations to you and yours!

  8. Hey, chicks can play hockey, too! They just can’t make as much money at it as the guys can.

    I can’t wait for Sierra to take her place on our national hockey team and kick other countries’ butt :smile:

  9. CONGRATULATIONS!!! I’m so very happy for you! Great name too.

    Enjoy every moment of holding, feeding, and snuggling with your little one.

    She looks great in those genes! :-)

  10. Oh my!
    Maybe I’m just reaching that age where the testosterone is waning, but that makes my eyes a lil watery.
    A great big congratulations to you, I’m sure you’ll be a wonderful mommy!

  11. Woot!! That is so awesome! She is beautiful. Congrats to the new CosmoMomma and CosmoPapa! Isn’t it the most amazing thing in the world?! Weclome to the world, Sierra Nicole! You are a lucky girl to have such cool parents!

  12. Congratulations!!!! I was thinking that you were off having a baby the last few times I came by and you hadn’t posted.

    And not to say I told you so but, see, I told you it was a girl!! 😉

    I guess you’re gonna be even more tired for a little while now. Just make sure to have your naps when she has her naps… you’ll need them to get back your strength.

    I’m so happy for you. Oh, and love that pic.

  13. She’s adorable and I think the name is wonderful. I love that you only had 5 hours of labor! I haven’t had anything less then 8 yet I’m hoping the third time will be shorter. I can’t wait to see more pictures. :mrgreen:

  14. oh my goodness. she’s adorable. and tiny! Congrats!

    and i’m totally 100% envious of your 5 hour labor. please send those kind of vibes to me!!!
