She's here! She's here!
And it was all worth the wait, just like everyone had told us it'd be.
On Thursday, September 5th, in the middle of a thunderstorm, we welcomed our sweet Riley June into this world. She weighed 7 lbs, 13 oz. and measured 21-3/4 inches long, already tall like her mommy and daddy! She has a full head of dark hair, and long skinny legs, arms, fingers, and toes, which she loves to spread apart, earning our affectionate nickname of "monkey feet." We had the good fortune of a fairly quick and smooth labor and delivery, and are now settling into life at home. She has made us a family, and the feeling is so euphoric, it's indescribable. I never knew my heart could feel so full. We are overwhelmed with pure happiness and love for our little sweet sweet.
