We had a GIRL on Friday the 28th. Emery Grace was born via repeat c/s at 8 am weighing a whopping 10lb 8oz, 21in long. Surgery went great, had staples removed before leaving the hospital.
She was pretty jaundiced on day 2 and had to use phototherapy to help with it. We came home on Monday after being under the lights for about 15 hours. The roughest part was not being able to be with her the entire time, but we both survived and are home and doing well.
Her weight dropped to 9lb 10oz on Monday before discharge and we have our first weight check today. She nurses like a champ so hopefully she is up a few oz.

ETA: Her weight was 10lb 3oz today!!
I lift my eyes unto the hills, Where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, The Maker of Heaven and Earth. And I'll praise You in this storm and I will lift my hands, For You are who You are no matter where I am, And every tear I've cried You hold in Your hand, You never left my side and though my heart is torn, I will praise You in this storm
