Labor was intense but mercifully short at about 3 hours. There were no complications and Mom and baby are doing great.

So far Zebby is being the perfect brother. He loves to hold her, pat her head, and "read" to her. When she gets upset he runs to her and says "Don't worry, Celeste, your brother Zebby is right here." We'll just have to see how this all holds up when he realizes she's here to stay....

Likewise, Kaelen has taken it well so far but we'll see what happens when it sinks in for HIM that he now has two baby siblings that are here to stay....

If you need to see more of Celeste (ie, you are a grandparent), then you can view pictures and movies here. They are organized by date, in yyyymmdd format, with Celeste pictures starting in the 20000816 directory. Note that you will have to navigate several levels of subdirectories before you get to the images - just keep clicking! Also note that all pictures are stored in 1600x1200 format, and the movies are over 1MB, and so they may take a while to download if you have a slow connection.
