Ciela arrives

The kid can cry. As one can imagine, we spent the first night half-asleep and mostly awake as Ciela either insisted on nursing or crying. She would drift off for about 30 minutes before waking up again. And today, she's either been zonked out, or sounding her barbaric yawp.

Everyone's still fine. Our pediatrician was, of course, out of town, but her partner gave Ciela the thumbs up--impressed with her ability to vigorously raise her head from the prone position. We can stay another night, but the couch I have to sleep on was made, apparently, for newborn infants because it's only 30 inches long, so we most likely will be leaving for home tonight. We're still going to get a final hospital dinner before we head out.

Why not Ciela Parc Karnia? Are you sexist or something?
