She's here!!

She has officially arrived and we couldn't be happier.

Here are the stats:

Born: October 24, 2008 at 8:00pm
Height: 19.5 inches
Weight: 6.4lbs (teeny tiny)
Hair: Dark Blonde... super short in front, longer in back
Hours in Labor: 5:35am (water broke) to 8:00pm (actual time of delivery) = 14hrs 25mins

Congrats Celeste for having the most accurate estimates. I'll make you a picture in Paint and send it over.

I am feeling sore and really tired, but overall - doing great.

Oh, by the way, her name is: Sara Elizabeth

If you would like all the details of the Labor/Delivery, let me know. I will spare everyone else. Although I have to say, it's the part I was the most nervous about and it went extremely well. And we had a great prize at the end of it all.

Going home from the hospital
