Melanie is here!

This is the DH posting because the once-again-birthgiver is still in the hospital. All went well; she had the birth-pool she had hoped for, the Canon of Andrew of Crete was playing, we were at the hospital only two hours before the birth, there was no hemorrhaging to speak of or fear, the nurse was great, the midwife was great, and much more that I will let herself hold forth about since this is her blog.

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.
