Weight: 8 lbs. 5 oz. (3.78 kg.)
Length: 20.5 in. (52 cm.)
Born: 5:41 pm April 28th by emergency C-section (see below post for more info)
Hair: Blondish red
Eyes: Seem to be a very dark blue, almost purple. Steven's were a similar color when he was born, and are now more of an deep sky blue, so this could change.
In summary - healthy baby, healthy Mom, which is pretty much the important part. I'll let B post a more detailed report sometime in the near future, since I was accused by more than one female reader yesterday of leaving out "details." Since I know that I can never include enough of this essential ingredient to satisfy, I'll just leave it to her to take care of. :)
In the meantime, she's recovering fairly well and hasn't shown any complicated aftereffects from the surgery. Thanks again to all of you who thought about us during this time! A few more pics, for those interested:

Thanks again for thinking of us! We give thanks for the amazing blessing He's given, so please rejoice with us.
