The three of us are, on the whole, in reasonably good shape. We had the option to go home today, but after consulting with one of the ob/gyn partners, Anne decided staying on with nursing care and attentive check-ups was not a bad thing. We were, for a while, clear of the roommates, but we acquired new ones--apparently UM Mott has had a Baby Blitz, with squadrons of storks with wing-mounted baby-bundle dispensers doing bombing runs across the city. I'm guessing St. Joe's has seen much the same phenomenon. We will be home tomorrow after our pediatrician signs the discharge.

About the only thing we need right now is sleep, I think. Our little girl is getting plenty of it (much as we were told), and Anne's doing a better job of taking the cat-naps. I, for all that I was sent home last night, didn't do too well (and slept less than Anne did during The Wait on Tuesday, i.e. not at all).

And as for my first official announcement online, we have named our daughter: Rosalind Jane. Or, if you're being familiar, Rosie, Roz, (Little) Jaybird, and Lin. Either pronunciation of Rosalind is fine at this point. I tend towards Rose-a-lind, Anne tends towards Roz-lind. It's amusing. To us. For now.

Don't forget, we're short on sleep. ;-)
