She's here!!

I wish words could explain how much joy is filling up my soul right now. I can't really focus on anything else. Katelyn and Wade welcomed their daughter into the world last night at 11:52 p.m. From all accounts, she's perfect. They are exhausted and smitten. Hearing Katelyn talk to her baby over the phone is just too much. I love that she is having this experience, my heart is so full. They will be such sweet parents. For my record's sake:

Tessa Jane Hunt
August 13, 2008, 11:52 p.m.
7 lbs, 9 oz., 19 inches
lots of light hair
complete with each tiny little body part she's supposed to come with!
you'd think this was my induction into aunthood, the way I already love this little girl, but no, there are others... the difference is that I have now felt what it feels like to hold one straight from heaven. it's different after having done that. Welcome to the world, Tess!!

I used to think Tessa was an unusual name. Maybe not anymore! Did you hear the Dara Torres (olympic swimmer)also has a daughter named Tessa. Maybe we have just started a trend. :-)

At any rate, congrats to your sister! I hope she recovers quickly and can revel in the magic of this time a little.
