I have a new niece! Abigail Margaret arrived last night at 6:39 p.m. She is, of course, beautiful. She has a full head of dark hair, like her daddy. She weighs 7 lbs 13 oz.
I'm tempted to post pictures, but I don't want to steal all the thunder from ccap. I'll leave the first photos to her. She'll be in the hospital until tomorrow - check her blog some time after that for photo evidence.
It was a long and hard delivery, but in the end, the family is complete and happy. You know, after having a stillborn baby, a person never ever takes a live healthy baby for granted. There were moments during the long day of waiting, that I had mini panic attacks imagining the worst, because I know the worst CAN happen. But thank God, in the end, the very best happened and we are all celebrating.
Abigail's cousins are very, very happy. They can hardly think of anything else. They've been dancing around the house rejoicing. This baby will be very special to them.
