UPDATE #2: YOU CAN SEE PHOTOS DONE BY THE HOSPITAL HERE, AND YOU CAN SIGN HER GUESTBOOK HERE
UPDATE: PICTURES HAVE BEEN MOVED TO KATHERINE'S PHOTO GALLERY
May I introduce to you our lovely daughter, Katherine Ruth! 23.5 hours after arriving at the hospital, we became a (larger) family with the arrival of this little stinker. Perfect so far. Audra spent most of yesterday trying to dilate enough - they broke her water around 6:30, with an epidural shortly thereafter, which got her to the point where she was ready to deliver.
As Hope had been a C-section, we had wanted to try, if at all possible, to have Kati normally. Audra went to ten and pushed for about five minutes, when it became apparent that it was causing too much distress on the baby (like her big sister, Kati wouldn't fit). So a C-section was called for, and at 4:30 am she drew her first breaths!
She's eight pounds, even, 21.5 inches long, and, as you can see, pretty dang cute! We're thrilled to have the ordeal behind us, and thankful to God for His blessing.
And now, if y'all will excuse me, I'm going to sleep!
