Our first daughter was born this evening at 6:35, weighing in at 9 pounds, 3 ounces and 20 and 3/4 inches long.  She doesn't currently have a name that we know of yet, but those of you who have been around at the boys' births probably won't be too surprised at that.  So, I guess for now, I'll put this post in the "pregnancy" category, and it can get added to a new category later.

Heather is doing well, and I'll let her write up the more detailed version of her labor - she did time it quite well, we arrived at the birth center at 5:30, and left at 10:30, after the four hour post-birth required stay.

OOPS. Didn't read the last comment. Welcome Faith Elizabeth! Beautiful name for a beautiful little girl (I haven't seen a picture, but I'm sure everyone will agree)
