Me: "Who has the best seat in the house, me or daddy?"

Adam: "Well, Daddy's is nice, but yours is best. Your's is squishier."

She's Here

Our baby girl is here.
We named her
Natalie Faith.
She weighed 7 pounds, 7 ounces
and is itty bitty cute, healthy and strong.
In a nutshell:

She was born on May 30 by her own choosing after my water broke.  It was a rapid labor that led to an emergency cesarean because she was turned diagonally (oblique) and the water broke with baby's cord and hand presenting at the opening. I was given a general because I had just taken my blood thinner shot 30 minutes before my water broke, and the labor was flying so fast there wasn't time to get us both safe.  We came home yesterday.

I am having a very slow and rough recovery.
 Continued prayers are much appreciated.

So relieved our baby is here safe in our arms.
 I will give a more detailed account in coming days.
