Introducing Fiona Grace White

fionaAt 6:01 Tuesday evening, Kristi gave birth to Fiona Grace White. She was 21.4” long, and weighed 11 pounds 4 ounces!

Fiona broke the record for Providence Hospital for the last couple of years. The nurses couldn’t belive she was delivered normally. Wow.

Delivery was very hard, and I got pretty worried for a minute. But Kristi did it, and is recovering well. Fiona is just wonderful. She eats, she sleeps, she fills her diaper, she makes cute noises. Oh, and she's beautiful, if still a bit puffy. I'm looking forward to getting to know her.

You can see some pictures over here at Flickr. We've shot some video as well, but who knows when that will get put together. Probably for high school graduation. =)

Congratulations to the whole family! I'm so happy for you. And I really love her name (and I'm super-picky, so I don't say that to just anyone), it's a lovely choice. And she's a beautiful baby. (Guess you won't be needing those newborn sized clothes, though.)

Kristi, you are officially my hero. If you can give birth to that giant baby the old-fashioned way, I'm pretty sure you qualify as some kind of Superhero.

Congratulations! I am so jealous that Tony, Douglas, and Claire got to see her already. She is beautiful and her hair is to die for! I am sure her and Claire will be good friends and like all really close girlfriends, can already share clothes. :)

God's blessings to you!

Congratulations! I am so happy she finally came. Too bad Johnathan wasn't right but I was! I got the day and sex correct.

ELEVEN POUNDS! WHAT! Oh my goodness. You should enter the NFL draft and play quarterback! WAY TO GO, K-WHITE

WOW, dude, WOW. I thought surely they took the baby C-Section. You are my Hommie. Alasha is going to pass out when I tell her.

Kristi and Allan,
I don't know if you are still checking this posting, but Jeannette sent me the link. She's beautiful. I can't believe you have three children--how time flies. I's love to really catch up. Drop me an e-mail at kmb616@juno.com.
