She's here!

This is going to be short and sweet because I'm about 27 different kinds of exhausted right now. 

Fiona Claire was born on Monday, August 15 at 8:06 am. The first cut was done at 8:01am and she came out five minutes later. Then there were about 15 minutes of being sewn back up and it was over. We just made it home from the hospital today. It's good to be here. She weighed 7 pounds 15.9 ounces, if you can believe that, so the nurses rounded up and said she weighed 8 pounds even. 

Fiona is a sweetheart. She sleeps a lot, rarely cries. In fact, I've only heard her cry three times. She eats a ton and loves to poop. All in all, she's a perfect baby and I'm so glad she's OUT of my body rather than IN it. She's got both of us wrapped around her tiny fingers.

Here are some pictures.

I'll post better pictures once I take them. Hopefully within the next week or so.
