A 'Little Beauty' Has Arrived!

This morning, we got an email from Emily Grace Whebbe announcing the birth of her baby girl.

Our yet-to-be-named little girl arrived Thursday, Aug. 4, at 2:51 p.m. after just 12 short laboring hours!

My water broke at 3 a.m. and contractions hit every 10 minutes, increasing in frequency and intensity quickly. We arrived at the birth center at 9:30 a.m., and after a little more labor and four hours of pushing, she was out.

We are all doing great, and the birth went exactly as planned, with no drugs and no complications. The birth center staff was absolutely amazing, and Kai was the most supportive and loving partner and father we could have asked for.

We're home now with our little 19 3/4", 7 pound, 2 ounce lady, and she loves to nurse!

Emily says she'll send a more detailed birth story when she can. Congratulations!
