She's here, she's here...sweet Rio Rae!
That precious little peanut firmly grasping her daddy's finger made her appearance yesterday, October 1 at 10:59 p.m., weighing 7 lb 12 oz.
She was just a few days late but made an impressive entry in the world. B had crampy labor pains all day long and then as the contractions got about 4-5 minutes apart they headed to the hospital. Dilated to a 3-4 there was not a rush that she would be there anytime before 4 am the next morning but Rio had other plans. After a whirlwind 5 hours labor and going from a 4 to 10 in less than an hour B had the natural childbirth that she didn't think possible. Too late for the epidural she was a champ and sailed through bringing this precious little bundle into our world.
