Our baby girl arrived at 10:59pm April 30th! For a while we weren't sure if we would have an April or May baby, but we got in under the wire.

I am writing up the whole story to share, but the short version is this:

Baby girl was born on the 30th, and weighed 10lb 7oz, and she is 22 inches long, with a 15 inch head. Her birth was good, although there were a cople of very scary parts. She has a bunch of golden blonde hair, and is just beautiful overall. We are very happy to have her here with us.

We will be announcing her name in a day or two. Here are a few pictures.

This is this morning, wearing her first soaker, a gorgeous Mosaic Moon that was a gift. It will be very loved for the week it will probably fit!

Congratulations Donna! She is absolutely gorgeous!!! I can hardly wait to hear the whole story--I hope *you* are doing well...I don't like hearing 'scary' in your message there.

That soaker is wonderful
