Glamchild #13 was born in the first minutes of this Sunday morning while making a memorable entrance by getting stuck in the birth canal. This little girl fought long and hard (so did her mother) and finally arrived via c-section. I hear about wonderful home births, but sure am glad that we were in the hospital, as our new Baby Phoebe might not have made it. Thank you Heavenly Father for answered prayers, thoughtful and informed nurses, intuitive midwives and skilled surgeons. Phoebe Lynn Gardner was born at 12:20am, is 21 inches long and weighed in at 7 lbs, 13 oz's. So Congratulations to niece Erynn Krahn for guessing closest to the time Phoebe was born and to myself and daughter Kelli (we tied) for guessing closest to her birth weight. Look at Phoebe's poor little cone-head minutes after being born.

This afternoon both baby and mom are doing well. Phoebe's "cone" has gone down a bit and is still being monitored for her oxygen intake, but she is doing great. Yeah for Glambabies who grow into Fabulous Glamchildren. I love them all and I am so lucky.

Congrats!! Kelley this is what I do for a living so if you guys have any questions about what is going on with the baby (if the baby is in the nursery) don't hesitate to call. I am sure Phoebe is in great hands!!!
