Introducing....

The Squidlet! She arrived at 10:14, after just 8 hrs of labor and one, just ONE push!
She weighs 7lbs 3oz and is 19 1/2 inches long. She is WAY more tempermental than her sissy, Junebug, but nursed like a champ from the word go. She is very, very vocal!
I feel so incredibly blessed.

It was awesome, both sets of grand parents were there right after the birth so we got to do some extended family bonding.

This is NOT my favorite picture of me, but, I love you enough to share.

Congratulations to the whole extended family. So sweet and precious. Your pictures looked just fine, Jo. You look like a very proud grandma (though you don't really look old enough to be a grandma).

Peas, bugs and squid...what a family. I guess it's better than me calling my son "Boog", though. Hee hee. :D

Give her a squeeze for me!
