Happy "Birth" Day!

Hey All,
Congrats are finally in order...After almost exactly 24 hours of contractions, at 2:55 am this morning, March 13th, my sister gave birth to a new baby daughter. Olivia Mary weighed in at a WOW 9lbs and is 21-1/4" long. Baby was super quiet (as opposed to vocal Erykah and Isabella) and has lots of dark curly hair, chubby cheeks, had a great apgar score of 9 out of 10 and has the cutest 10 fingers and 10 toes (you know how I LOVE baby hands and feet).

Just a quick post to say that Mommy and baby (as well as daddy and sisters) are doing very well at home where the birth took place. Thanks to midwives Alex and Cathy for assisting in the birth. These midwives are truly amazing.

Tracey, awesome job bringing this new little life into the world. All the best to you!

Lots of pics tomorrow when I get back to work with my digital camera (which in my sleepy stupor I left behind at my sisters apartment).

Congratulations to Tracey and her family. I just get all giddy inside thinking of the joy of a new baby. I so admire Tracey for giving birth at home (3 times) - it was something I didn't even think to attempt. lol. Again, Congratulations.
