Chloe Ebba

Chloe Ebba was welcomed with love by the Holland-Anderson family this morning at 4:24 AM. Labor was relatively short and easy (for me :>)) compared to Martha's and Henri's births. Labor started in earnest about 1:00 AM, Yolanda, our midwife, arrived at our house about 3:45 AM, and Chloe was born shortly thereafter. Chloe even arrived so quickly that she was born by the time Christa's mom was able to get Martha and Henri out of bed.

Chloe and Christa are both doing great. Thanks for the prayers for a healthy baby and delivery -- they certainly were answered!

Time to get proud sister, Martha, off to school so that she can share the big news with her friends. I'll post more photos later. Our friend, Amy, shot 7 rolls of film during birth so we'll have plenty of great photos to share later.

P.S. Chloe weighed in at 8 lb. 5 oz and is 20 inches long.
