Outnumbered 2 to 1



Yesterday, Bess woke up at 5:30 having contractions, after packing and getting the kids dropped off with friends we arrived at the hospital at 8:40. She delivered the baby naturally at 9:25 after pushing twice. It went so fast that the new mother's first words to her newborn daughter were "Are you serious? Shut your face!"

Everyone is doing great. Bess is the happiest I've seen her in months. The baby is 8 lbs 15 ounces and 20 inches long, cute, purple and chubby. It took us all yesterday to finally decide, but her name is Maggie Jane Harvey Bauer (even though I was pushing heavily for Violet, to match her birth color).

This afternoon, I brought Bess home, where we are now easily outnumbered by our children.
