I haven't journaled in a while. I left on a rather grim note. However, I now have a perfectly healthy little girl. She's just over a month old. She was born on December 13, 2007. The rest of my pregnancy was a strain. My morning sickness NEVER went away, and I eventually became toxemic. They induced my labor on the 12, and now I have an awesome guilt story for Isabella when she gets old enough to hear about my horrible 19 and a half hour labor that eventually ended in a C-section. I'm totally in love and I can't wait to spend every day with her. I dread going back to work on February 11, but it must be done. Otherwise I can't feed her :(. Summer will come soon enough though. That's the perk of being a teacher and one reason I chose this profession.
