Introducing...

Updated with correct stats.....

Kelly, sorry to bump your post, but I need to introduce you all to someone.



This is my brand new niece, Irene Hope. She arrived by c-section last night at 11:26 after a long, grueling day of unproductive labor and weighed in at 9 pounds, 22 inches long. It sounds like Shannon was really a trooper through it all. Irene had a little trouble breathing right at the beginning but mom & daughter are both stable and doing well now. Isn't she beautiful? Welcome to the family, Little Sparky.

thanks for posting Jo!!!!

she IS beautiful and getting more beautiful by the hour!!! she is a great feeder...has her mom's chin, dad's ears, and combo face/cheeks...we can't tell about eyes (they are still too swollen)...

hopefully add some more udpates and pix soon...check BLOGGY MCBLOGGERSON out or maybe I'll have to start a new one altogether...isn't that we I'm supposed to do?!

thanks again!

She is adorable and her mother looks amazing- much better than anyone who just had a nine pound baby should look. Enjoy being Auntie Jo!
