Welcome Isabelle

Isabelle Paige French joined our family at 12:27 p.m. today. She weighed 6 lbs. 10 oz. and was 20 inches long.

We arrived at the hospital this morning at 6:00 a.m. for our appointment to be induced even though we didn’t get back from picking up my parents from the airport until 1:00 a.m.

Things were progressing pretty slow around 11:30 a.m., so I went out to grab a bite to eat. It’s usually not a good idea to eat in front of your wife while she’s trying to give birth. Around 12:10 p.m. I got a call on my cell phone that I had better hurry up because the baby was going to be here soon. Fortunately, I was just around the corner and I zipped back up to the delivery room. The midwife appeared soon after I got back. A few pushes and Isabelle was here.

I will follow up with more pictures, but I had to get in the obligatory scale shot which I also have for Abby and Emily.
