Lily is Here!!!!!!!!

Jo's water broke at 11:30 last night and they left for the hospital an hour later. Lily Irene arrived at 6:20 this morning through VBAC, 7 lb 1 oz, dark hair and fine Apgars.

Congrats

No pics avalable at this time... that I know of.

Yipeeee!! I'm so glad you were able to have the VBAC! Can't wait to see the little cutie!

I second the congratulations!! I still think it is so funny that I called just a few hours after she was born and had no idea that you had just had a baby!! And just think, I'll get to see her in person in just a couple weeks.

when are you coming into town Johanna??? Marie, did I hear you were coming through to go to Disney or something?

Johanna said...

I just bought a ticket today - special fare. I get in the 18th around noon and leave the 21st in the morning. I gathered from Jo that Marie was coming in the 18th not too long after me, and going to Orlando the 19th. Meagan, if we time it right, we could actually get that picture of the 4 of us together for the front page of this blog!

i arrive in orlando at about 11am on the 18th and will somehow get to tampa shortly after. then i need to be back to orlando the next evening. i have training for two weeks after that at some hotel near sea world. that would be great if you could come to visit meagan and we could get a picture taken. too bad caleb won't be with me, that would be cute if we could get a picture of all our kids too.

I'm not bringing my kids either. It will be weird for me - I've never travelled anywhere without them... The ticket was a great fare, but multiplied by three instead of one would have been too much. Fortunately I have a sister-in-law who is willing to lengthen a trip she is taking to Dallas by two days to stay with my boys while Jerry is at work!

Marie, I'm not sure why I thought you were flying into Tampa - I think Jo might think that too, or perhaps it was just the "I-just-gave-birth-and-nothing-else-really-matters" factor! Here I thought it was uncanny that we would both be arriving so close in time to the same airport! Are you renting a car, or is one of the McPherson's picking you up? How far is Orlando from Tampa? I'm afraid my Florida geography is limited to the few places Joanna has lived... :)

del and(?) jo were going to pick me up from orlando. it's only 30 minutes away. i'm honestly not worried about it though. i will talk to jo about it and if i need to rent a car i can easily do that. it might work out better so i can drive myself back the next day. it'll all work out.

Johanna said...

I am also not concerned. I told Jo that I am very happy to sit in an airport by myself, since I am rarely truly responsible for no one but me! I had no idea Orlando was so close. It should work out with no problems. Now we just need to get Meagan over on the 18th too.
