At 8:08 AM on December 12th, we gave birth to the most beautiful, healthy baby we have laid our eyes on. Penelope is 8 lbs 6 ounces and has already melted Matt’s heart. Penelope is named after Melissa’s grandmother, who is very special to her. Melissa went in to labor at 8:30 last night and started the final push around 6 AM! Matt was able to witness the beautiful miracle of birth and see first hand his wife endure the pain of child birth all natural! She did fantastic! You better believe we will be posting more pictures, more videos and more updates as they come! This pictures here don’t do “Nelli” justice! She did just come out of utter darkness like 8 minutes before, so she was a little taken back by all the flashes. Thank you all so much for your prayers and support! This truly is a new “Life Stage” for us. For now, here are some pictures to hold you over until we get some snazzier ones taken when Melissa recovers a little bit. Isn’t Nelli perfect?!
