It's a girl!

She was born tonight by C-section around 7:30. So far no name.
She had to work a little harder than normal to breathe, so they have her in a "headbox", which supplies extra oxygen. They also put in an IV into her umbilical cord. As awful as that sounds the baby does not feel it. The vessel is still there and open from prebirth. This was just a precaution in case she has more breathing difficulties.
Chalene gets her first look at her. Grandma & Grandpa Z checking her out. Grandpa was able to deliver her. Sorry to call her "she" but that is what it is for now. Check tomorrow for an update on the name.

I'm lost. I don't know who Chalene is. Cute baby and COOL Grandma and Grandpa. I feel kinda out of the loop here, like I should know, but maybe forgot something. Sorry.

Beth, Chalene is Matt's wife. They've been married for a little over 2 years.
