Amelie Sky August. Born March 4, 2008 at 3:55 PM, 6 pounds and 13 ounces, 18.9 inches long. Here she is!!! I feel like my heart has both melted and expanded with all the love I have for her. Jim and I are completely over the moon. I ended up having a C-section, but am now recovering at home and feeling pretty good. It just doesn't get any better than this. Will post when I can. Right now I'm running on fumes (baby scented) and bonding with the bunny.
