Introducing Miss Lorelei Anna Belle Orth!

That feeling I had all day Monday and at 2:30 in the morning on Tuesday? Yeah. Early labor.

This is not the labor story. That gets it's own post when I have a bit more time. But here are the main stats and some pictures of our first few hours:

Lorelei Anna Belle Orth
Born at 8:38 pm on Tuesday, January 24th (the same day as my paternal Grandma Ed, my mom and my cousin Kurt's youngest daughter Katie!) via a successful 18 hour labor home birth!
Weight: 7 pounds, 8 ounces
Length: 19 1/2 inches
Eyes: Blue (when she opens them!)
Hair: Dark blonde
