She’s Here!

Introducing Riese Elizabeth, 6 pounds and 5 ounces, 18 and 3/4 inches long. Born November 24 at 2:48 p.m.!

she's here!

Thank you for all the love and welcomes you have already given her via Instagram and Facebook! I started feeling some early labor contractions the day/night before the scheduled C section, so it seems we picked her birthday well, and we are so happy and grateful our breech babe is finally here, in our arms, safe and sound. :)

first meeting

Mom, Dad, and baby Riese (a family name – pronounced Reese) are all doing well. We are so in love with this little face already!

    Anne, congratulations! She is adorable, and I LOVE her name.

    Pretty weird coincidence: I had my son last month, October 27th, also via c-section because he was breech, and he ALSO weighed 6lbs 5oz at birth AND was 18 3/4 in long.
