Melanie is here!
Little Melanie landed on St. Patty's Day, so we may have some debate about a middle name that we had thought was settled. She was born at 10:15 pm; weight 8lb 14oz, 35.5 cm head (sputnik), 21.5 in long, thick reddish slightly curly hair. Again, I will let herself fill in with more details. Please let it suffice for now that we are happy, we feel blessed, and we are grateful for the numerous prayers, yours and ours, that have been answered with such super-abundant generosity by God.
