Baby Girl is born

Well, we are proud to announce that our newest daughter is born! She came in the early morning hours of December 31st 2006. Making her a New Years Eve baby and a nice tax break baby as well. We were so grateful when Dr F (a neighbor, friend from church, and one of the OBGYN docs at the hospital here) called us on the morning of the 30th asking how things were going. I had been having false labor and some decreased fetal movement as well. He asked me to come in for a look since he was at the hospital for a scheduled C-section that morning. Things indeed looked favorable, so I was admitted for an induction, and I was so happy! Some 15 hours later (after another emergency C-section case came in delaying things for me a bit) she was born. T was able to deliver this baby and that was a thrill for him. He was so distracted/excited by catching her that I had to ask what the sex of the baby was. We are so grateful to have another girl for A to play with. Our family really feels complete! Her full initials are E B T and she was 8 pounds and 21.7inches long. She is a very calm wonderful baby so far who looks just exactly like Middle Boy did. Right down to the birth weight and the crinkled ears. We love her a ton!
