We're so excited to welcome our new little one! She was born at 1:04pm on January 10th into the water and papa's arms. She weighs 7 pounds 4 ounces, and is 20 inches long. Mama and baby are resting and doing great. We are getting to know our new daughter and will let you know when we are ready for visitors and phone calls. Thank you for giving us this time with our new little one.
