Sorry to drop off the planet. Contractions started Sunday night during dinner and now suddenly it's Friday afternoon and I can't believe how quickly time can fly (especially since it'd been creeping so slowly before). 

 

She's stirring, so I'll post a quick-hit and pic and update with the full birthstory later. 

 

Ilse Louise

8 lbs, 2 oz

19 3/4 inches

Born Monday afternoon, 8-8-11
