Baby!

Thanking God for:

- Loving to give good gifts to His children
- LOTS of extra fluid which allowed our baby to flip after 40 weeks
- LOTS of extra fluid which kept a scrawny umbilical cord floating and safe
- An awesome physician who agreed to deliver our breech baby (!!!!)
- An awesome physician who agreed to attempt a version on a post-dates woman (!!!!)
- A God who can turn the hearts of Kings...and physicians
- A vertex presentation after a night of contractions
- A delivery that did not turn out to be a c-section
- The blessing of children
- Another GIRL (!!!!)
- Sweet Polly Jane, all 8 lbs and 11 ounces of her!

Congrats. Look forward to meeting her and seeing you all again. And post some photos. I'm dying to see this placenta and compare it to the others.



Yes, that was a joke, though if you post some I'm going to have to look.
