Elizabeth Katelyn Maxted

So we had intended on posting some pictures of us at a cardboard boat regatta at Lake Accotink today, but around 4:00 PM today Sarah started feeling some contractions and Elizabeth Katelyn Maxted decided to come a week or so early (June 12th was the original due date). She was born on June 1st at 9:51 PM at Fairfax Hospital, weighed 6 lbs 13 ounces, and was 20 and 3/4" long.

Labor went fine and Sarah kept her streak alive of no epiderals and/or painkillers. She and Elizabeth are doing great, and I expect they're both asleep at the hospital right now. Elizabeth did have some bruising on her face during birth, so if she's a bit purplish in the photos, its not for lack of oxygen. The doctors say her bruises will actually look worse tomorrow, but should go away shortly thereafter.

I think the plan will be for me to bring Vanessa by sometime tomorrow to meet her new sister. That should be interesting. ;) Here are a few pictures before I head to bed.

Congratulations and welcome, baby Elizabeth. Let us know if you need anything and get some rest if you can.
