She's here!!

Okay, so my due date was actually pretty close ... I was due on Thursday the 12th and little Katrina Pala Herbert arrived Friday morning, May 13th. :) I'm not sure how to post pictures here but I do have a link to our gallery. Not too many pictures yet - late nights and early mornings make for sleepy mommies and daddies. We'll add more soon, I promise. Until then:

Oh, yeah, the details! Her name is Katrina Pala. The middle name is a Hebrew word meaning "wonderful" - it's from Psalm 139:14 that says, "I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well." She arrived at 11:13 on May 13th, weighing 6 lbs, 10.5 ounces and 20.5" long. She is such a good baby! We're all doing well, except for lack of sleep, but I think that is to be expected.

Time for me to go take a shower while she's still sleeping. More later!

Due date.

Well, today is the day. My due date. Like I told our families in an e-mail today, nothing is happening (yet). I worked a full day today and I feel fine...good/great, even. Let's hope that's a good sign that the baby is coming soon. :)

Funny thing happened in the restroom today. We had this big teaming agreement meeting with tons of people, and I ran into a woman from the meeting in the restroom. She had asked earlier when I was due and was quite surprised when I responded, "Today." Anyway, as we were washing hands she asked, "You're having a boy, right?" I said no, that the ultrasounds have said the baby is a girl. She exclaimed, "No way! I thought for sure you were carrying a boy from the way you look." Uhhhh.......

Yay for daisies!

I got flowers at work today! :) That makes me happy. Today is the day our company embarks on a three-day Disney Cruise and I can't go. Not too much of a big deal, since there are many others who aren't going, but I did a lot of the planning of the trip. I don't mind, really - it has been similar to planning conferences and not taking part in them.

Anyway, the flowers are from Kurt and Hal (company presidents) and fellow cruisers. And they are daisies! My husband is good at keeping secrets/surprises. I had no idea!
