P-Nut has arrived!!!

I would like to introduce you all to the lovely Little Miss P-Nut! AKA...

Marlow Jewell

She was born on Sunday, January 6, 2013 at 2:23am. Weighing in at 6lbs 15.7oz, and measuring 19 3/4" long.
The Hubs and I fell in love with her name many months ago, there's no elaborate story behind it. It already suits her just right! Her middle name is my Maiden name and I hope she is as proud to carry it as I was.
Labor and delivery went incredibly well and I will share her birth story with you as soon as I have the time to compile it.
For now, we are so in love with our baby girl and we are adjusting to life as a family of 4. I'm feeling really good, sleep deprived, but good overall. My arch nemesis, hormones, are still the bain of my existence but I do my best to take things in stride and I know it will get better.
Breastfeeding has been going so well! We are only 5 days in and things are far better than they were with Little C. He and I did not have the best go at breastfeeding so I am beyond thrilled that P-Nut and I are off to as good a start as we are.
Speaking of Little C...

He is so happy to have a "baby sheeshter!" He always talks about her, wants to hold her and since she sleeps so much he always says, "good morning, baby sheeshter," whenever he sees her. It is too cute!
So there you have it! P-Nut is finally here!!! We are up to our eyeballs in diapers, we're sleep deprived, I'm a human cow, and we are doing our best to keep things as "normal" as possible for Little C. Is it hard? I'd be lying if I said "no." But I wouldn't change a thing. My heart is overwhelmed with happiness and bursting with love. I remind myself of that as I'm crying from hormones, or from the pain of encouraged breasts!  
I can't wait to share more of our journey with you. Thank you for the support and kind words leading up to P-Nut's arrival. Now if you'll excuse me... I'm going to go soak in more of that happiness and love! :)
