Welcome to the World, Iris Lucia (by Dan)

October 17, 12:40 am Rachel gracefully delivered Iris Lucia into the world for her first breath.  I am in awe of my wife who had a natural birth with this little girl, who apparently thought it would be fun to mix it up by being born posterior (face up, v. face down).  Rachel and Iris are doing great...  she is 21 inches long and 8 lbs 6 oz...Iris, not Rachel.  Rachel is still 5'7".  As she was born I had the privileged of "catching" Iris, under the watchful eye of our amazing midwife. 

Thanks to everyone for their love, prayers and support,
