She's here!

And she's awesome!!

Announcing Sandra Eisley Lawson's arrival into this big beautiful world! She was born today at 8:05 a.m., weighing 6 pounds and 15 ounces. She is 20 and 3/4 inches long... and every last bit of her is magnificent! She arrived via c-section this morning and all went smoothly! It was kind of a weird experience, as I was awake the whole time-- but I'm feeling great and couldn't have been more pleased with the whole process.

Here are a few quick snapshots from this morning, after she first arrived. There have been MANY more photos taken since then, and we'll get them uploaded as soon as possible.

She's already had several visitors today! The Martins were the first to wish Eisley a happy birthday-- and were gracious to bring Billy a yummy lunch. And then the Ajas & The Beasley Browns came-- complete with birthday cupcakes and candles to celebrate Eisley's very first birth-day party!

We are so blessed... soon all of the family will arrive from Texas, and we are thrilled to show her off!

We just met with her pediatrician, and he was fabulous-- said he has no concerns about our little one and that she looks just GREAT! She is a VERY alert baby-- and has been wide awake pretty much all day, with the exception of about 2 hours.

More later. I am going to try to squeeze in a short nap while Eisley is sleeping... for now!
