New Arrival

Evelyn Grace arrived at 5:06 PM on Friday April 1, 2011. She weighed 6 pounds 2 ounces and was 19 inches long. Daddy was there to greet her and cut the cord. Dr. Peggy Guard did catcher duty. She came out pink and yelling and scored Apgars of 10 and 10. My little perfect 10!! (Apgars are the scores doctors assign at 1 and 5 minutes of life to assess color, activitity etc to describe how well an infant is doing. Two 10s is PERFECT and not real common. Most babies get a 9 or 10 by the second score, but usually lose a couple of points at 1 minute as they adjust to shock of the real world.)
