big news: some details

To recap: Fern Elena Charles was born this morning at 6:40. She's 21.5 inches and weighs 9 pounds 6 ounces. After a long 20 hours of labor, Dr. Masters, the attending, came to the conclusion that little Fern just wasn't advancing, and that our best route was going to be a Caesarean delivery. That procedure went beautifully, and the three of us are now recovering and resting!

We'll be here at the hospital for at least a couple of days. We'd love to talk to everyone, so please feel free to call Graham's cell... if we're resting we'll just turn off the ringer, so no worries! We'd love to hear from you by e-mail to, too... and a BIG thanks to everyone who e-mailed and posted to the blog during labor!

See you all soon!
