Katharine Webb Joyner
My wife Kimberly woke me a little before 2 yesterday morning to inform me that her water had broken and that it was time to drive her to the hospital. After 12 hours of trying naturally, another 14 of trying with the aid of an inducing drug, and two hours of hard labor, Katharine Webb Joyner was ultimately delivered by Caesarian section at 6:40 this morning. She was 7 pounds, 6.44 ounces and 18.5 inches at birth.
Mother and baby are fine. More to follow, including photos.
Needless to say, posting will be light for a couple of days.
UPDATE: Some early photos. I’ll post more to Flickr in the coming days. Given the lack of sleep and the ordeal, there aren’t yet any pictures of mom and baby that she’d authorize for public consumption.
