My sister Holly just had her baby girl approximately 35 minutes ago. Her labor started at 2 am and ended at 7:06 pm (SK time.) Not bad for a first timer! I am so excited for her and Josh, and at the same time, sad that I am not there to visit them in the hospital. I am so so so excited. I can't wait till I go for a visit at the end of this month! The baby girl weighs 9 lbs 2 oz and is nice and healthy. My mom is now a grandma and a happy one at that! She tells me the baby is "just a little butterball." She doesn't have a name yet, or a blog nickname, but I will let you know once they decide!
Update #2: They are home from the hospital (as of 9:30 pm Friday night) and are all doing well and are very happy. I forgot to mention earlier that Avah was measured at 21 and a quarter inches. She's going to be tall!
Update #1: Photos! Thanks Mom and Kim.

The kids take their turns too- Christa, Brad and Kim.
