Birth Day

Baby Girl's First Day

We welcomed our little Danica Jane into the world at 5:38am.  Danica means “morning star” and she was our little star this morning.  Jane means “God is gracious” and he is!

She is 7lbs. 8ounces and 20 1/4″ long.

Everything went very well.  The midwives were fantastic, and it was so nice to be home for the whole thing.  Zach and Gabe were woken up about an hour before she was born. Mom and Charlotte witnessed the event as well.  Ben and Noah woke up a couple of hours later.   Everyone was and is so happy.

I’m feeling great (a little tired), but the event is fresh enough in my mind that I’m feeling pretty sure I don’t want to repeat it.  I usually forget that within five minutes and it’s been seven hours now.

There are lots of pictures on Flickr if you want to check them out.  Zach was the birth photographer and he got some good shots from an angle that I don’t mind posting on Flickr!
