It’s a Girl!

Caroline Anne was born this morning at 6:08am. She was exactly one month early, weighs 7 lbs (big for her age!), measures 18 inches, and shares a birthday with her cousin. We are so happy and proud. I’ll be posting my birth story and pics soon. She is in the special care nursery for a few days due to some breathing problems because she was early. It doesn’t look like she’ll be released when I am, but she should be just fine.

More pics to come soon, and the birth story, I promise! I’m too exhausted to do any of it now.

    Such good news! I hope you and Caroline are healed up and ready to be home soon. Looking forward to your birth story. Congrats! P.S. I love the name choice, Caroline Anne. Very classic (I don’t like trendy or wierd names)
