Welcome Aboard Naia!!

As you may have guessed from my sudden disappearance from this space, the little miss finally made her entrance. Naia Virginia Wallach was born October 13, 2010 at 42 weeks, 2 days of cooking and she's just right!
Somehow I managed to sustain the oddest childbirth injury ever... tearing some cartilage in my left ankle that's left me barely able to walk. Big brother and daddy are stepping up to the plate and hanlding anything and everything around the boat while mama and Naia (rhymes with Maya by the way) spend their days nursing and sleeping and staring at each other in awe.

I can't thank you all enough for checking in, sending such caring and encouraging emails, and generally sending good wishes our way. We are slowly, SLOWLY catching up with the real world, but savoring our babymoon just the same.

momma rae said...

she is gorgeous!! those eyes are captivating. i LOVE baby feet, so thanks for that sweet photo, too. ;) so sorry to hear that you hurt your ankle, but thrilled that it means you are forced to rest and cuddle with your sweet babe. many blessings on your babymoon!

tandycat said...

Congratulations Cindy! What a beautiful little girl! I love her name too. My daughter actually named her doll Naia a few years ago, and I've always thought it was a very pretty and unusual name! I think she made the name up because she liked the way it rolled off her tongue, but it's fun to know there is a real Naia somewhere out there in the world! Rest your ankle and enjoy your babymoon! -Heather

Deb said...

Congratulations! I love that name - unique and sweet!

Oh, what a sweet and precious girl! I have been checking daily for weeks and resisted commenting as you didn't need to hear my tale of woe of being almost a full month overdue and the subsequent ICU beginnings, etc. I am so happy you had no complications other than your own foot. Enjoy all that enforced snuggle time and take care of yourself. Blessings. MizB

mb said...

congratulations, mama!!!!! so wonderful to hear the good news! i hope your ankle heals quickly! (and all the rest of the healing too!) i love that you wrote she is "just right" where most people put in the weight/length stats. i mean don't get me wrong, i find the stats fascinating too, and i drop my stats in conversation inappropriately all the time, but i do think they are all born just right!

Beth said...

Best wishes! What wonderful news and what a precious wee baby! She looks so alert. Oh those tiny pink toes are so sweet! I wish you joy. I love my boys so much, but there is something special about having a daughter. I feel like my daughter was especially picked out for me....love, Beth

Bethany said...

Well, she sure is gorgeous! I'm sure she was worth the wait :) Congratulations on your precious baby girl.
