Well, I'd hoped to avoid a 4th of July delivery but she just wasn't having it.

Grace Isabel was born at 8:12pm on the 4th of July.
7 pounds 4 oz (my smallest baby yet!)
18.5 inches

Here's a picture of her less than a few minutes old.

She looks sooo much like DS#2 did at birth, in fact they both have the same birth mark between their eyes and forehead.

She'd lost some weight at the hospital down to 6 pounds 8oz (at release) but she was already up to 7 pounds 10 oz at 8 days old!! Once my milk finally comes in... it comes in!! She's been nursing like a champ, in fact she'd latched on with gusto at only a few minutes old. The nurses were so impressed.
