Our baby girl has arrived!!!
Avery Irene was born Tuesday, March 15th, 2011 at 7:31 pm after 3 1/2 hours of labor, 6-8 minutes of pushing and on a giant ocean swell of love from her Mommy, Daddy and big brother, Hunter.
She weighed in at a "whopping" 7 lbs 5 oz, 19 1/2 inches with beautiful dark hair, a nose like her brother's and sweet little lips.

And we couldn't be happier for our family to be complete!

More to come, including a slightly more detailed birth story, after we all get some rest and bonding time in as a family of four.

So thankful for my children.

Congratulations, April!!! I was thinking about you (I think it was the 15th, too!), wondering if you had had her yet. I can't wait to read the birth story. Sounds like a nice, short labor! :)
