Ever Elizabeth: Two Days Old

Hi everyone, my friends, my awesome support team through this pregnancy: this is our girl. Our Ever. She is sleeping in her car seat as I type, while Lola sits on the floor next to her watching TV. She is my first baby born with hair :) And blue eyes, so far, and a face so sweet and wonderful that I have kissed her a thousand million times already. She turns her face to me and starts blinking and opening her mouth to nurse with a tiny grin now, when I kiss her, because she's a genius obviously, and has already put together that Mommy kissing her and saying Mommy's here means booby is coming. Everything is surreal from hormones, drugs and lack of sleep, but I am madly in love and falling harder every second. It's like the largest roller coaster ride in the world. To love someone this much is a sweet agony of the heart. Tonight, Mr. Curry is cooking pork chops, mashed potatoes, green beans and french bread, and then we will eat Nutter Butters for dessert. I will walk and nurse Ever while Mr. Curry and I watch some TV, and then the night will open with it's mysterious doors that are known only to parents of the very small. I love you all and thank you for your words of encouragement. Look at her!!!! xoxoxoxo

How amazing to see your beautiful baby at last and to hear your description of the night ahead, while I here on the other side of the world tend to my now grown babies and remember.

Thanks, Maggie.

svasti said...

She is simply perfect. Hooray!!! Thank you for sharing her photo with us. :)

Wishing you blessings and sleep and not too much colic to deal with. May she sleep like an angel as soon as possible! xo

Annie said...

She is so beautiful. Welcome, welcome, Ever, to this wonderful world, and love, and Mommy and Daddy. And for you and Mr. Curry, sleepless nights that are an ecstacy, those "mysterious doors that are known only to parents of the very small."

Steph(anie) said...

Kiss kiss.

Captain Dumbass said...

She is gorgeous!

Stephanie said...

You know, a lot of people talk a lot of shit about the Internet, about our obsessiveness with it and technology, and it's probably true that we're too connected to machines these days, but I will never in my life forget that I've read every post of yours in your pregnancy journey with Ever. Never. And I think it's absolutely valuable. Not necessary, necessarily, but important. I have waited and hoped for this little one right along with you, although obviously to a different degree. But to be that wanted. By humanity.

Sometimes technology is beautiful.

And so is your new little one. Congratulations to your whole beautiful, big-hearted family.

Dari said...

She is gorgeous! I am so happy for you guys! and maybe a little jealous that I have to wait four more weeks to meet my little one :) enjoy every second, like I know you will.

Carol said...

Maggie,

I chose you and your blog for an award. To receive your award please go to my blog and remember to pay it forward.

Happy Holidays,
