announcing… savannah!

Paul and I are excited to announce that Savannah River was born yesterday August 22 at 1:32pm. She weighed 7 pounds even and was 19 inches long. She is happy and healthy and doing great. She was delivered completely naturally…birth story to come soon. Enjoy her first pictures below; you can see more on my flickr site.

  1. Hooray! She’s a beauty! Way to go, mama! I love the family pictures.

    Based on the first line of this post, I think Paul got a hold of it before it posted. :)

  2. So. . . did you shower and put on make-up post-birth? My mom and I think you look way too good to have just had a baby! So excited for you! My mom just meanly pointed out that *she* gets to go visit y’all when she gets back to Atlanta. Hmmph.

  3. She’s such a beautiful little baby! And she does have more hair than Maddie does now. I can’t wait to meet her and see you!

  4. Awwww She’s GORGEOUS!!! Congratulations!!!!!! Can’t WAIT to hear the birth story!!!

  5. Aww . . . she’s so tiny! Congrats!

    And I see Paul had some influence on the middle name there =)

  6. Ashley does look fabulous! I told her how next time, I plan to style my hair, wash my face and put on a bit of makeup before I let anyone take too many pictures of me. I dunno if she did that or not — but she certainly has that unmedicated mama glow!

  7. Congrats – she’s beautiful! Were you early? Gwen was only a week early, and she was 5/6. Make sure you keep that Soothie pacifier – those were the only ones Gwen liked; we know have about six of ’em floating around. :) I’m so happy for you!

  8. Thanks, everyone! Pictures are courtesy of my brother-in-law, Jeremiah. He did a great job, didn’t he?

    Savannah came a week early. It turns out she wasn’t as small as we originally thought. When they reviewed her weight taken throughout our time in the hospital, they decided that initial weight (5lbs/11oz) was incorrect and that her actual birth weight was 7 lbs. I thought 5 lbs seemed smaller than she looked… I’m updating the post now. :-)
