The arrival of Samantha Margaret

Though she gave us quite a scare, Samantha was finally born safe and sound early this morning at 12:43am. She weighs 8 lbs. and is 21 1/2 inches tall.

We had 45 minutes of scary distress - she had her cord wrapped tightly around her neck not once, but twice! Needless to say we had to get her out fast because her heart rate was dropping dangerously low. She made it out and pinked up quickly. She's nursing well, pooping often and we are ever so proud! Pictures to come soon!

Vanessa and Becky - check your emails. Michael sent you both a sneak peek!

Congrats Amy and Micheal, so glad everything ended up okay. Can't wait to see her later today, I bet she's beautiful! Amanda is so excited to see her baby sis tonight as well. I'm sure she told everyone at school today. Kuddos to you Amy for all the hard work.

Becky said...

yay! congrats amy. I tried to call you but either you were completely drugged up and impossible to understand... or it wasn't you. I'm thinking it was the latter. =P

Hope you are doing well! I miss and love you lots! Give that new baby a big ol' squeeze from our family.
