She's here! Lila Evangeline Peeler has finally made her grand entrance into the world. She was born at 10:51 p.m. on Sunday, August 21st. She weighed 7 lbs. 1 oz. and is 19.5 inches long. Oh yes, and she's absolutely stunning! :)

It was a bumpy ride though. I don't feel like typing it all out right now (i'm taking a quick email break while she naps), but the short version is: I labored for 17 hours and then had to have a last-minute c-section. Mommy and baby came through the surgery fine and were able to come home from the hospital on Wednesday. On Thursday, we were back at the doctor because my incision had a seroma (i don't remember exactly what that means, so let's just call it an infection). Now I'm having to go to the wound care clinic at the hospital every few days and Doug is having to "change my packing" on the other days. There have been other adventures, but those details will have to come later in the full account.

I just wanted people to know that she's here and we're home and we love her to pieces!
