Hayden Elizabeth

Hayden Elizabeth was born yesterday, June 18 at 4:32 p.m. weighing in at 7 lb 1 oz and measuring 20" long. She's beautiful isn't she?

This is how Noah and grandpa spent the day while we waited for Hayden's arrival!

Chrystal very kindly allowed me to be in the delivery room and I got to see Hayden make her entry into the world. Also in the room were Craig, Chrystal's Mom and Chrystal's good friend Ronna (and maid of honor) who just happens to be a nurse at the hospital and just happened to be working yesterday. Ronna wasn't on the floor but was doing behind the scene tasks yesterday so was able to keep sticking her head in to see how things were going. Chrystal asked her to stay during delivery. When it came time to cut the cord, the Doctor asked Craig if he wanted to do it. Craig wasn't the least bit interested in doing it so Ronna said she would - and did. I thought it was neat that she could be a special part of the birth.

Here are Chrystal & Hayden shortly after birth

Daddy and Mommy think Hayden is gorgeous.

Noah thinks she's pretty special too!
