Olivia is here. 7lbs 2oz and she looks just like a nathan/delilah






After the last check they came in and said time to push. Melanie pushed, and pushed and pushed at least 5 rounds. We finally got her out and she spilled out after her head popped out. They cleaned her up and Melanie and I got to hold little Olivia for several minutes. The kids even got a chance to see her before they too her away. She was crying like a champ and was finally whisked away to neonatology and then on to CHOP. We will meet up with her again a little later.

We'll post more later tonight. Melanie is looking great and in good spirits. Now it is time for Olivia to begin her fight.
