Introducing Sweet Nora

Baby Nora
She is finally here!  Meet Nora.

Just one picture and I am completely in love.  Isn't she beautiful?

Nora finally decided to join us this morning at 5:39am, weighing in at 8lbs 1oz.  

The birth mom was induced at 8am yesterday, so it was a long labor! I don't know any details about how the delivery went yet (because I was sound asleep, and now Boo is sound asleep!).  Boo said last night that they really liked both the birth mom and the biological grandmother.  They spend most of their time in the delivery room with them all day yesterday and last night, and I am sure it was an amazing experience to get to be so present during the birth of their daughter!

** I know, Christmas, right?  What blogger just SKIPS Christmas?  It has honestly been the best Christmas of my life. Just perfect.  And I have pictures.  LOTS of pictures.  I will post a few tomorrow and a LOT after our final Christmas on Thursday.  Just hold tight.  It shall be well documented!


  1. Very sweet! We are pursuing private adoption and looking for our special someone. So inspiring.

  2. I just love her name. Can't wait to meet her!!

  3. Look at those CHEEKS!! Congrats to everyone!

  4. Wow - what a beautiful baby! Congrats to Boo, Chris, and big sis Cici!!!

  5. How wonderful!! Gosh don't inductions take such a long time? I had Oscar 26.5 hours after the start of my induction and yet the midwives didn't expect me to deliver so soon (my friend took 2 days!) I guess it's something to do with the fact your body is being pushed to do something it isn't geared up to do just yet. Very hard when you are impatiently waiting the arrival of such a precious little one, isn't it? I have been thinking of you and waiting for this news all day :)

    She is absolutely beautiful! And how lovely that Boo and Chris got to be so involved in the birth. What a glorious Christmas present for your whole family, I am just so happy for you all. Oscar sends his congratulations too with a great big smile to welcome darling baby Nora! xx

  6. Sarah, congrats to your whole family!

    She is gorgeous and I love those lovely squishy cheeks :)

  7. Nora is beautiful and I am glad everyone is happy!! Congrats to you and your whole family!!

  8. yay!!!! i stalked the blog all day yesterday hoping to hear good news! can't wait to hear the whole story and see more pictures! she is absolutely beautiful... congrats to the whole family!!!
