she's here! who left this little girl with me?

for those of you that know what that little bottle is used for...my apologies :)
it was 5:54 on a dark and stormy night...well, it was dark, but not really stormy i guess. anyway, sofi lyn decided to make her (ever so uncomfortable) way into the world. the petocin was taking its sweet time prodding her along, but by 5:30, she decided it was time. it only took a couple minutes of pushing and she arrived. i obviously don't have the amount of energy to come up with the proper birthing scenario at this particular time, but i will be back with many a detail in tow. in the meantime, enjoy her beautiful first minutes of life via these photos and thanks for all your prayers and well wishes. she's wonderful and, well so am i...i mean, i'm feeling pretty good. thanks a few minutes old...that good ol' sutton nose

all tuckered out

YEAH MY FRIEND! Sorry I was not more diligent in the following or quicker in the posting. Time just gets away from a person.

So congrats. I am so excited for you guys. I look forward to endles posts of all things girly.

Hey and ps, the bottle is pretty much a life saver, so it is only appropriate that it got some camera time as well.

Well zippety doo dah for your cute family! :) It is nice to see that there is a light at the end of the pregnancy tunnel and that it has the potential to be so adorable! You look good too--I don't think I'll be posting pics of me post-baby until maybe...a year later. :) Congrats!
