A New Addition



Last night at 7:45 the newest member of our family came into the world. She is a very pleasant little girl. She was 8 lbs. 1 oz. and 20 inches long. She is a miracle not only because she managed to come out with a full head of hair, against all genetic odds, but also that she came without having to have a C-section. It took 12 hours. After 10 hours she hadn't dropped yet and only dilated to four. We had about given up hope when the doctor came about an hour and a half later and said the baby had dropped most of the way and was dilated completely. The doctor said we could start pushing. 15 mins later, she was here. Here are a few pictures of the little girl. More to come soon. Including the name...:)

Yay!!! She's beautiful. Her name is sweet. We also have a Grace. Grace Ellen (after my grandma) Gardner. I tried to talk Curtis into using "Editha" a few different times, but he declined. Hope Grandma Dedo doesn't find out :)
Congratulations!!!

Oh, she is soooo beautiful! I'm so excited you didn't need to have a c-section. (I think maybe she stole our baby's hair, though--Eli had nothing compared to his sibs:)
