I'm not sure if I remember how to do this...  

I sort of had a baby in November. Yeah. Well, no sort of about it.

I did.

I know. 47 and pregnant. I should get my own TLC show. But in July, when I was getting a bit rounder in the middle section and I thought I felt movement even though I couldn't possibly be pregnant because I had gone through menopause since I hadn't gotten my period for a really long time, I went to the doctor and lo and behold! I was pregnant.

So much better news, let me tell you. :) I cried when I saw her on the ultrasound.

She's perfect and her name is Piper. The little bundle of joy weighed in at a whopping 10 lbs 4 oz which is funny since I gained a total of 9 pounds during the whole pregnancy. Yeah I know. Go figure.

She's 3 months now. This is her.

I can tell you more about the pregnancy and birth and the joys of Piper later but for now, here are some pics behind the cut:

Talk about a 'What did you do over the summer?' theme, huh?

Oh, is Piper just so adorable! I can't even imagine what you're reaction was finding out. But what a precious surprise. Congrations! *hug* ♥

If you can imagine the most surprised look on a face ever, that would be mine.

She is precious. Thank you and *hugs you back*

Maria! What wonderful news :) *big hugs* Piper is an absolutely beautiful surprise, not just for you, but to us too. *blinks* Wow!!!

Anyhow, congrats, and I look forward to hearing all the details (if you ever get the time!!)

Mariaslave_o_spike on February 22nd, 2011 10:34 pm (UTC)

I should get the time (like now, I'm returning all the wonderful congrats. :))

Thank you!

Soooo cute!!!
All the best for you and your adorable daughter, and of course for the rest of your family as well.
Enjoy the baby-time, Maria. You know how fast they grow up.

Mariaslave_o_spike on February 22nd, 2011 10:35 pm (UTC)
She is already growing up so fast. 3 months and wearing 6-9 months clothing already. :P

Thank you. I enjoy her every day.

Good heavens! Um, congratulations? *g* I bet it was a hell of a surprise to find out that you weren't as through menopause as you thought you were. (btw, totally not fair that you stopped having periods at 47 and I'm 54 and STILL having the bloody things, in spite of being on hormone patches for other menopausal issues)

She's adorable.
Mariaslave_o_spike on February 23rd, 2011 12:45 am (UTC)
I think I'll be having periods for the next 8 years. LOL! I thought it was too early for me too. I just became super irregular (obviously, :P).

So Orli had a baby (well, he didn't, Miranda did) about the same time and the same weight. I seriously have not followed what has happened to him in awhile (I've been a little busy).

Thank you, she is a cutie alright. :)

Oh wow, that must have been a surprise... Congratulations! She is beautiful and Piper is a lovely name.

Mariaslave_o_spike on February 23rd, 2011 12:46 am (UTC)
I always liked the name Piper and she really did look like one when she came out. :)

Thank you and *hugs you tightly*

Maria, she is absolutely gorgeous. Congrats.
Mariaslave_o_spike on February 23rd, 2011 12:47 am (UTC)
Thank you! And she's even cuter right this second as my son just changed her and doused her with a bit too much baby powder. LOL!

She's absolutely adorable! Congratulations to you :) Rena
Mariaslave_o_spike on February 23rd, 2011 12:48 am (UTC)
Thank you! And btw, I haven't been ignoring my fb, I've just been a bit busy. (LOL understatement). I will be getting to it all soon. :)

I do love good fb on anything I've written.

OMG!!! Congratulations! She's gorgeous. I hope you're feeling good. *HUGS*
Mariaslave_o_spike on February 23rd, 2011 04:15 am (UTC)
*hugs you* hi shadow!

I'm feeling fine now (a little sleepy at times). She is a cutie. I can't help but smile everytime I look at her. Thank you! :)

Oh my God Maria I'm so happy for you !!!!! I thought you were lost. O_o I have sent Pm and never heard about you. And I've missed you so much ! Your Piper is just adorable and i'm crazy about that name. :))
It's good to hear from you. I hope this little girl will inspire you the most craziest crack fic.
Oh, and about this cannibal story...ok, ok, gonna wait as long as it takes. :D
*hugs you* Aïda
Mariaslave_o_spike on February 23rd, 2011 04:19 am (UTC)
Hey you!!! You PM'd me? I need to look back now. When I'm pregnant and then for a few months afterward, I put all my energies into that and nothing else (except for the whole nesting thing - getting ready for baby, etc). She is so adorable it hurts. LOL! I've always loved the name and it just fit her perfectly when she was born.

Writing is going to be a bit difficult. LOL! But she is getting to the point where she likes her own time now (time in the walker or just laying on the floor).

Thanks Aida! *hugs and smooches*

OMG! Congrats!!!
Piper is sooooo cute! :)
Now I know what you did in the last month! :P

*big hug*
Mariaslave_o_spike on February 24th, 2011 04:36 am (UTC)
Last few months! LOL!

Piper is a cutie but she really was a handful today. *is tired*

Thank you for the warm wishes. :)
Kristintxrabbit on February 18th, 2011 12:27 pm (UTC)
Wow! What an incredible surprise! She's gorgeous!

Congrats on making it through the delivery. I thought my boy child was big at 9lbs. 4oz.
Mariaslave_o_spike on February 24th, 2011 04:57 am (UTC)
Thank you and yes, she was quite a surprise at that! :)

A most happy one though.

My first two were both 9 lbs, the next one 10, the next one 8 lbs (the smallest) and the last two 10 lbs again. LOL! 9lb 4 is big.
Doylebaby: Congratulationsdoylebaby on February 18th, 2011 12:41 pm (UTC)
Oh wow, that must have been both a surprise and a bit of a shock!

She's lovely and I bet she will be spoiled to bits by her older siblings. :)
Mariaslave_o_spike on February 24th, 2011 04:58 am (UTC)
that must have been both a surprise and a bit of a shock!

To say the least. LOL!

The older kids are spoiling her, especially her big brother. Thank you!
Thymeoasis6028 on February 18th, 2011 01:42 pm (UTC)
She's lovely. Congratulations.
Mariaslave_o_spike on February 24th, 2011 04:58 am (UTC)
Thank you! I agree - she is lovely.
sevigny7sevigny7 on February 18th, 2011 07:22 pm (UTC)
How precious and adorable and destined to be she is! But OMG, Maria, if I'd got accidentally preggers at 47 they'd have had to put me stark raving in the home (not to mention it would have been the second Immaculate Conception).

Mariaslave_o_spike on February 24th, 2011 06:18 am (UTC)
LOL! I told Joe about the Immaculate Conception and he laughed too. :)

I'm seriously waiting for the men to come along with the nice jacket that ties in the back. :P

She is seriously precious to me. Thanks!
