She's Here!

You read that right - she.  We had a little girl today at about 1:35 pm.  I was scheduled to have a c-section next Thursday, the 22nd, but God had other plans. 


Here she is, Daphne Jane.  She is 6 pounds 14 ounces and 20 1/4 inches long.  She has a full head of dark hair - just like her sisters had.  We are both doing well.  Actually in comparison to my first 2 c-sections, this one was a breeze!   
Although, we were shocked to go into labor today, we are so thankful she's here and healthy!  

More pictures to come!!

Yeah! We are so excited. Ryan said "Oh man!" when I told him it was a girl. He's now in the kitchen making her pictures and insiting that we still need to buy her a blue outfit!
