Gwendolyn Jessie

Sara here posting on behalf of Laura....as she's a little too tired (not to mention preoccupied) to do it herself! Her beautiful baby girl was born at 7:56 this evening. I don't know the weight yet but in the words of her doting father she's "as cute as a button." Long fingers, long toes and dark hair.

She was born at Nanaimo General Hospital and the plan when I spoke to Chris was to head back home shortly. I don't have all the nitty gritties, we'll have to wait for those, but sounds like once labour picked up it went into overdrive and progressed fairly quickly.

So there you have it! Welcome to the world, Gwen!

She was 8 lbs. 12 oz. Mom, Dad and baby are home in bed now, having a cuddle and hopefully a long snooze.
