This morning at 8:35:
Annabeth _________ (they haven't completely decided on the middle name yet) G***** came into the world!!
She's 6 pounds 7 ounces and 19.5 inches of beautiful baby girl with a full head of black hair! I was blessed beyond belief as I was able to witness her birth. I am totally amazed! Laurel did a wonderful job....truly amazing, and Pete is making a great dad too! All I can say is, "Wow!" and then I tear up.
I'll share more later with pictures. Right now, I need to get some sleep! It was an experience I wouldn't have traded for the world, but the sleeping accomodations and excitement did not provide the best rest for any of us. I'm also in need of a shower as you can see in some pictures to come. Phew, I'm exhausted, and I was not even the one who had the baby! So, more to come later when my words might make better sense!
