Mallory Erin Dinkel was born on Saturday, 8/16, via C-section. She weighed in at 6 lb - 8 oz and was 19" long (not bad for arriving 3 weeks early). Everyone says girls are more difficult than boys, so why should a situation like birth be any different. Mommy and Mallory are both doing well.
Brady and Drew came to visit on Sunday. Brady was smitten as soon as he saw his baby sister. You couldn't wipe the smile off of Brady's face if you wanted to - he was very excited to be the first one to hold her. Drew was a little apprehensive at first, but he warmed up to her and can already say her name. He lost interest quickly and preferred to walk the hallway on the maternity ward.
