Kaylee Elizabeth Clark

Stephanie and I are proud to introduce our daughter, Kaylee Elizabeth Clark. She was born just before midnight on Tuesday and weighed in at 7 lbs, 13 oz. Stephanie did phenomenal during labor, working as hard at the end of the 13 hours as she did at the beginning (13 hours is a little bit faster than average for a first time mom, if that makes you feel any better about that seemingly high number). Both mom and baby are doing fine. Dad — it’s still a trip to think of myself as Dad now — needs some sleep, but is doing okay, too.

Obviously my plan to blog the birth from the phone didn’t work. I sent the messages, but they were never posted. I’m not sure why. Anyway, I’ll write more later. For now, shower, commute, and then work (for a little while, at least).
