Panda hug!


Kellie had her baby today at 3:57 PM. River Elese is 8 lbs. 1 oz. 19 3/4 inches tall. She is absolutely beautiful. Mom and baby are doing fine and will probably come home tomorrow.

I got to see and hold little River only two hours after she was born. I also got to do a little bit of coaching Kellie, but it was after her epidural, and she was mostly really tired. I advised her to go to sleep. Her water broke at 6 AM, so we really thought we would be getting a little baby much sooner, but not so.

Anyhow, yay! We are so happy and excited.
