welcome little one

Baby Girl born 7/16/2011 at 12:53pm - 6lbs 13 ounces 20" long - not yet named

Mom, Guertha, did beautiful work. This was her first baby. She labored and delivered with the perfect combination of grace and moxie. When commended for such a great job she told us that she listened in class and trusted the advice she was being given. (Guertha is pictured at the top of the "Things of Thursdays" post.)

Melissa delivered, Beth assisted, I assisted in the second assistant role.  Three is a perfect number of people. Everyone can stay busy.  Papa and sister-in-law waited just outside the room.
