Penelope Faye has arrived!!!!

Oh my.
I'm finding myself speechless.

For now I'll just post some pictures from last night and one from today (so far)...

Oh, first I'll tell you this: she weighed 8 lbs 4 oz and was (is) 21 3/4 inches long and was born at 10:13 pm November 11, 2013.

We call her Nell.  Or Princess Nell - because she is royalty.

Here are some pictures....

This next picture was taken today....
The hospital had given her the patriotic cap because she was born on Veteran's Day.
I'm glad she's already being patriotic,
since her great-granddads Daddy Bob and Granddaddy Andy were veterans (of WW2).

Soon her Aunt Laura and Uncle Ryan and her great grandmother Nana will meet her!!!

(I'm thinking we'll have lots more pictures to post.)

It's a wonderful life.
(That is an understatement.)
