The New Addition

We are happy to announce that we had a healthy baby girl this afternoon...Melissa Joy Lyman. She was 20 inches in length, and 7 lb and 10 oz in weight. She came out pooping (3 poops before her bath). We are armed to the teeth with diapers, so wish us luck. Kristin is also doing well, and will entertain visitors as early as tomorrow. A few photos of the action:

Fresh out of the belly!
