Great-Grandma Lambourne got here last night. Today she's hitting the strip with my mom!

Drum roll please...

Welcome Abigail Jean Lambourne,

Born: Jan. 31st 20099:19pm

Weight: 8 lbs 5 ounces

Length: 21"

Delivered: at home by her Daddy!!...that's right, you can call me Mr. Mid-Wife.

The whole thing went down in about 45 minutes flat. It must be a record time for labor to birth and it was definently a surprise to all of us who were just talking about getting a movie for the night and maybe the baby would be born the next day. Carrie and I went on a walk to get the mail at about 8:30pm. When we got back, the heavy labor just kicked in all of the sudden. Next thing you know, I'm playing doctor and delivering my own my own bedroom! The mid-wife arrived about two minutes after Abigail was born and took over with the clean up detail.

Both mom and baby are doing great! I think Grandma Crowley is a little traumatized, but it went down perfect. We were blessed that everything with the birth go so good (no funny business with the cord or anything) and that we were allready prepared for a home birth, because we would have never made it to the hopsital!

Abigail is a beautiful little angel who we can allready tell is going to be determined. When she makes up her mind to do something, she isn't going to wait around for anyone! I think we're going to nick name here "Action Abby."
