Eowyn Grace

Eowyn Grace was born today, August 15, 2007, at 3:23 pm, central time at Hillcrest Baptist Medical Center. She was 8 lb, 8 oz (3,864 grams) and 20 1/2 inches long (52 cm).

Maren's water broke at 8:30 pm Tuesday night. (Don't worry, Atalie & Justin...she got to the toilet quickly and no mess to your house...and thanks again for putting us up for two weeks between moving...) We arrived at the hospital at 10:30pm. She had the epidural after trying her best to hold out at 6 am, received Potocin about 6:30 am, and finally delivered our daughter at 3:23 pm. It was a long day for us. I slept about 3 1/2 hours during that time, Maren dozed off once or twice.

Eowyn is very healthy and happy. She recognizes Mommy & Daddy's voices & seems to react to them with familiarity. We're not sure yet who she looks like.

Daddy was stupid & left the camera at the hospital, so no pictures yet. But I'll attach some tomorrow afternoon. If you're interested, the blog below has "the story" about how we picked the name.
