Sophie has arrived

This will be quick post. I know several of you are waiting to hear so I wanted to post at least a little info.

Miss Sophie arrived this morning around 1:30 or so - we don't know the exact time yet. She was delivered by C-section because she was just determined not to make an appearance any other way. Could be because our daughter in law is a tiny petite little lady, and Miss Sophie weighted in at 9 lbs. 8 oz. and measured 22 1/2" in length. We haven't been able to see her yet, but did see a few pictures of her daddy holding her right after delivery. She has a small amount of dark hair and a very healthy set of lungs. She was crying in every picture except one, I think.

We got home and to bed about 3:30 a.m., which gave us about 2 hours sleep before we had to get ready for work. Not sure how long I'll last today before I head home for a nap. I hope to be able to post pictures this evening.

Gratitudes:
1. A healthy baby granddaughter
2. A loving son who will be a terrific daddy
3. A wonderful daughter-in-law who will be a terrific mother
4. A long weekend coming up
5. Two+ hours of sleep
