Welcome Emily Grace Poe

I just came from the hospital to meet my new niece, Emily Grace. She is so sweet and looks just like her momma. My heart just leaped for joy when I saw her for the first time.

Ryan sent out this e-mail earlier this afternoon with all the delivery details and babys stats:

Emily Grace Poe became an official part of the Poe family this morning at 8:05. She weighed in at 8 pounds and 2 ounces and measured 19 1/4 inches long. She's perfect!! Lots of dark hair (with a few curls!) and even some dark hairs on her shoulders. With all the heartburn Shannon had during the pregnancy Shannon was predicting a little saskwatch baby...and that's what we got! She's a screamer...even the delivering docs and nurses were surprised how shrill her little screams were. But, she is nursing really well and seems to be much happier with a full tummy. Just like her daddy.

Shannon did great during the whole thing. She was able to remain alert for the whole operation. She's in some pain...and gets waves of nausea from time to time, but she's not been sick. She's sleeping now.

Thanks for your prayers. The whole morning has gone as great as we could have hoped for. We are so blessed and are looking forward to introducing you all to our new little Emily.
