Sunday Suprise

Hey, guess what?

Pennie Jane is here!


She arrived this morning at 9:29 AM, after some very, VERY intense contractions.


She weighs 5 lbs 13 oz, making her the smallest Gilchrist baby.


We're both snuggled up in our bed, having some absolutely fantastic skin-to-skin contact.


We don't have a length measurement yet, but we will soon!


Can I just say how relieved I am???


Pictures coming soon!

Congratulations my sweet friend. I saw a picture of Pennie on Facebook. What a beautiful little girl. She looks like her daddy from what I can tell. Rest up and get lots of snuggles. :) Love you!

I didn't check blogs all morning so I didn't even know you were in labor. I am so excited to hear that Pennie is born. A little jealous because I think I will be carrying this baby over, but hopefully soone rthatn later I will be holding my little one also. can't wait to see pictures and I am so very excited and happy for you.
