SHE'S HERE!

So Tess ______Taylor (We don't have a middle name yet) was born yesterday June 12 at 8:40 pm. She weighed in at  6 lbs 14 oz, and is 18 inches. She came after 10 hours of unprogressive labor which ultimately lead to a dangerous risk to baby so she came the C-section route.
Mom and baby are doing wonderful and are healthy and strong and beautiful. Of course what you all want to see are pictures so here you go.

She is so darling!!! Mckell and I still have a present we need to bring over. I needed to see pictures of this. I am expecting my third and I am in the sick of sick stages. I remember how sick you were, and seeing her helps me remember that it is well worth it.
What an angel.
