Okay, just so my child will be Googled before she’s twelve hours old:
Lydia Baldwin Young
Born February 19th, 2004 2:52 AM
6 pounds, 3.6 ounces. 19.2 inches!
Lydia arrived five weeks early or two weeks early, depending on which figures you go by. She’s pink and healthy and basking under the warmer in the nursery: though technically a preemie, she’s been evaluated and put in the “regular, healthy ol’ baby” category. She was delivered last night by a C-section because Kate’s water broke and labor started while Lydia was in the breech position.
I’ve been kicked out of the maternity room because Kate has a roommate this morning, and visiting hours for dads don’t begin until 10AM. So I’m releasing my relief, excitement, and overjoyed-ness on this blog!
