Just a quick note to announce that Aurelia Kathleen Joy Hawkins arrived yesterday evening at 4:51 PM. Mom is doing well after a little scare with high blood pressure. I hope to be moved from special care to the regular postpartum wing. Aurelia weighed in at 6 lbs 15 oz and came out crying. She's strong and ready for her surgery. Joey got to hold her and even change a diaper (his first ever!) in the NICU last night. I'm looking forward to holding her as soon as they can wheel me over there! The surgery should be this afternoon, although we're waiting for confirmation. Meanwhile, we're both pretty worn out. We'll post a more detailed update later today. Thanks for all the love and support!
