Welcome

Andrew here, Jaime is resting comfortably on the bed while feeding the girl. Oh, by the way, the new addition to the family is:

Elsie Joy Schechter
Born on 11/8/2009, 2:53pm
Weight: 9lbs 2.2oz

We arrived at the hospital at 11:10am, got checked into our room at 1:30 (due to a bunch of other people having babies at this birth center), and then pushed out a baby.

Elsie has been eating for 30 minutes straight, I guess it takes a lot to keep 9+ pounds going through the first few hours of (air-breathing) life.

I'll stop now, Jaime will post later, including pictures.

Wow! That was fast! I'm so thankful. But you're not being very fast about getting pictures posted! After all, Elsie's been here two whole hours!

Waiting impatiently,
Grandma RoRo

Dad wants me to tell you he was closest on the weight, and I hit the date and was fairly close on the time of day. When do you want to take us out to eat? :)

Love,
Mom

so happy everything went well! I'm still afraid I might be wanted by the hospital police for my driving problem when Abigail was born so I'll wait until you get home to visit :)
love to all of you, Great-aunt carol
