She's here!

Stan again.

After about 35 minutes of pushing, Baby Girl officially arrived at 12:10 AM on Sunday, October 19. What a blessing!

Abby Jewel weighed 5 pounds, 4 ounces and measured 19 inches long. The nurses say she is perfectly healthy. And she was such a "big girl" that she was able to go straight to the regular newborn nursery and not NICU, despite being born at 35 weeks and 4 days.

Jill is doing great too.

More to come.
