Our Own Advent!
Amy gave birth to Katherine Elaine Saturday morning, December 15, at 4:18 a.m. She was in a hurry to see the world, because we only checked into the hospital at 3:00! All went well, and she and Amy are both doing fabulously. You can't see it through her hat here, but she has lots of hair! She was six pounds, nine ounces, and 19 1/2 inches long. We'll be home tomorrow morning. To quote Amy, "Labor really wasn't too bad. It was kind of like running a marathon." It was highly appropriate having a baby, though, during the season of Advent! It's hard to sing all those advent hymns without thinking of Kate (until they get to the Christological language).
