Caroline!

Yippee!!! She's here! The short story is I went into labor Friday night, left for the hospital around 1 a.m. Saturday morning and Caroline Marcelle was born at 5:48 a.m. After two previous c-sections I am so thrilled and excited to report that Caroline was NOT a c-section and came out quickly and easily (well, thanks to the epidural, anyway).

She's our smallest baby weighing in at 6 pounds and 4 ounces. Madeleine, Hank and Elisabeth already are fighting over who gets to hold Caroline the longest (Mommy should!) and everyone seems to be adjusting nicely.

I haven't downloaded any pictures from our camera yet, just a few from my iPhone, but here's at least one to share that was taken in recovery mere moments after her birth.

Supermom, indeed! Can we just drop the "wannabe" part? Are there any serious contenders out there? Did you have the iPhone in the delivery room???? You are amazing, and Caroline is beautiful, just like all the others.
