She's here!

Our first child has been born! She didn't end up being a birthday baby for Amber--the day after, with some serious labor in between.

Both mom and child are healthy and happy. Her name is Coraline Hope Clark, and she arrived at 9:10pm on March 30th, 2008. Weighing in at 7 lbs, 1 oz, she was 19 and a quarter inches long. Mom had to have a C-section because of Coraline's large head and her smaller-than-average pelvic bones, but everyone is doing well.

She has my cleft chin, Amber's lips and nose, and might be on track for having curly hair--who knows at this point. What's undeniable is her overwhelming cuteness!

We've set up a Picassa album for posting the photos to at http://picasaweb.google.com/amber.d.clark/Coraline. A bunch came out too dark last night since we didn't want the flash to hurt her little eyes. More will follow, though--have no doubt.
