Mary has arrived!

We welcomed Marion "Mary" Kathleen Werner on Sunday, November 29, 2009! She weighed 8 pounds, 9 ounces and was 21.5" long.

Our due date was December 12, so we weren't sure it was real labor when I started having inconsistent contractions around 4:30pm on Saturday. By 8pm, after yelling at Mike for eating his apple too loudly, I was sure it was the real thing. Grandmom and Grandpop came to our house at 11pm to spend the night with Michael, we arrived at the hospital at 11:30pm, and Mary was born at 2:36am. Mike and I were surprised and thrilled when the doctor announced, "It's a girl!" Little brother Michael wasn't allowed to visit in the hospital due to the flu season, but was happy to spend a couple days getting showered with attention from Oma and Opa. So far, he has tried to share her paci and bottle, play catch with her, and fix the bow in her hair. We're tired, but we're enjoying watching Mary and Michael grow each day!

Aw. What a doll. She does look a lot like Michael and I don't think the Grandparents could smile any bigger :). Congratulations. She's beautiful.

Welcome to the world, Mary Werner! You're already likely finding out that you have an incredible mom and dad, and a brother too! There's also a lot of excited family and friends, happy that you're here safe and sound. Listen to your mom and dad. They know a lot about this place we call the world, and the time we call life. We're all looking forward to meeting you!

Congratulations, she's beautiful!!! The pictures of Mikey with his new little sis are especially cute. One question: did Oma have another hand-knit blanket in blue in case it was a boy? :-)
