Welcome to the world!
Mary Margaret was born into the world on Monday at 5:51 p.m. Thank you for all your prayers leading up to the delivery. Patty and the baby are doing fine (except for the hit-by-a-truck-cold that wifey and I brought home from the hospital). The big smile on Patty's face shows how well she came through labor, by far the easiest yet. No induction necessary, no epidural; it was completely natural.
The boys are welcoming Mary pretty well. Our four-and-a-half year old is totally in love and takes every opportunity to help. The other two goobers are not quite sure yet that she's staying for good.
Thank you to Our Lady of Fatima who was a constant source of strength and comfort to our whole family as we received this precious gift from God.
