Home from the hospital
After all the uncertain waiting, never knowing as we went to be if we'd be sleeping through to the morning or getting up in the middle to rush to the hospital, the waiting is finally over. Friday morning at 4 we got up, not rushing exactly, so it was 5 by the time we got to the hospital. And Anneke was born at 10:42am.
We're home now (as of about 24 hours ago, actually) and doing fairly well. She didn't let us sleep much last night and is now fast asleep in the sling across my chest. We definitely hope we can get her schedule switched around to sleeping at night soon...
Anneke, by the way, is a Dutch name. It's a variation on Anna, and we've also seen people spell it Annika (with the same pronunciation). The accent is on the first syllable.
