Happy Birth-Day, Natalie!

So, the big news!!!! Our new little sweetie, Natalie Jessica Nye, was born today just after 5 pm at the Ohio State University Medical Center, and weighed in at 9 lbs, 2 oz. Big girl! (i.e. poor Jessica!!) What a beauty of a girl, if I do say so myself! She must've gotten her good looks from me, because her mommy still has hers!! (sorry, that's a really old joke but I like it) Natalie is doing very, very well--it just seemed like she was SO ready to get out into the real world. Jessica is doing great also, at least as good as you can expect after giving birth! Some minor tearing was all. She only had to push for like 10 or 15 minutes--but let me tell ya (no wait, better let Jessica tell ya), it was a GRUELING 15 minutes. Those epidurals are fabulous, but they can't block out ALL the pain and discomfort. So Jessica is still with Natalie at the hospital, of course, and Jansen and I will be joining them first thing in the morning. So enjoy the pictures below...but there are a lot more on dropshots. Just click on the "Dropshots: Pictures" link to the right. More to come tomorrow and after, so stay tuned. We love you all!

Yay! I'm so excited! It is torture being so far away from such a darling little thing! Oh my, Jessica, she is wearing your face! What a doll! Please, please, take tons of pictures! We are all dying over here in Utah. My arms are itching to hold her! Nattie and Grace were so excited to see her and Grace kept asking why you had to be so far away! By the way, "Big Natalie" wants you to give a kiss to "Little Natalie" from her! We love you!

Every birth is a miracle - but yours looks especially sweet. What a lucky girl Natalie is to be born into the Nye family. I'm so happy for you all! Please let me know when you're ready for/wanting visitors. I'd love to come meet Natalie.
