Amelia is Here!

Dani after a leisurely walk. Moments later we left for the hospital.
Wednesday 7:34pm

Abbey at her command station awaiting drop off, only slightly aware that in less than 12 hours her position of power would be compromised. She seems to say "let's do this"
Wednesday 7:37pm

After 2 hours of screening, Dani convinced the nurses that she was in active labor by having a baby. Not really, but we did have to demonstrate "progress" to be admitted. Here sweet Amelia rests after 10 minutes of the hard life. Stats: 8lbs 11oz, 21 inches. 9 APGAR score. Otherwise, ideal health. Phew.
Thursday 4:50am

Here, Abbey is less than transparent about the new arrangement, but she's had a rough 2 days of adjustment.
Thursday 5:28pm

As an added bonus, Amelia Teresa was born on here grandmother's (Teresa's) birthday! Happy 30th, mom-in-law!

Welcome to the world Amelia! Congrats mom, dad, and big sister. She's a cutie (and BIG). We're glad to hear everyone is healthy and happy.
