Introducing Addison Clark Ritner

Addy was born at 4:09 AM weighing 7 lbs. 9 oz and measuring a healthy 19 inches long. The nurses woke Kristyn up at 3:45 to give her a catheter and do a routine check and instead decided that, "this girl is going to climb out on her own." Fifteen minutes of pain free pushing later, Addy came tumbling out. Mom is doing great, sleeping again. She cant stop saying, "This is so much fun, I just can't believe how much I love her already!" Dad almost passed out when the head starting showing and had to sit down saying, "I feel like I did at my father's wedding." Addy nursed within the important two-hour window and is now taking a bath with our wonderful nurse Laura who has been fantastic. Thanks for all the prayers. More pictures and some video to come soon.
