Rachel Lynn Bettendorf arrived at 3:40 pm this afternoon weighing 5 lbs 13 oz and 18 inches long. Carl was there for the birth and took some amazing photos. We were so excited to see her just 3 1/2 hours after she was born. Adie said her first sentence, "Baby right here." Granted only a parent would know that that was what she was saying, but she said it! Rachel is beautiful and we will have lots of lovin' around here! I am looking forward to holding and smelling her! Babies have the most wonderful smell especially when you put Johnson and Johnson baby lotion - oooo I can hardly wait!
Carrie looks amazing - as always! She is doing great and is looking forward to sleeping on her belly tonight!
