The youngest Porter, about 10 minutes after she was delivered!

At birth Natalie was 7 lbs. 9.2 oz, and 19-1/4 inches long.

This was taken before things really got started, about 9:30 a.m., at the time she took the first of what were to have been three "inducement" pills.

She made it through two of them, then labor proceeded remarkably quickly (only about 5-1/2 hours). Natalie was delivered about 12 days past her estimated due date, but she made up for lost time!

New Moms are entitled to a turkey dinner, but most parts of it benefitted the father, except for the pumpkin pie.

About midnight trying to get some sleep. We couldn't stop looking with astonishment at little Natalie during the night, so the sleep was less restful than one would have hoped.

The nurse insisted on taking this picture, as if nothing of the kind had ever happened before.

Natalie was mighty agreeable during her 18-hour hospital visit. She only "peeped" a few times and quickly calmed down hearing Mom or Dad's coaching to quiet down.

She has deep blue eyes at this point, and they seemed to move around & focus on things even at this early age.

She began breast feeding only 1/2-hour after delivery.

We left the hospital about 3:00 on the 27th. Now we are thankfully & comfortably at home.

That's all the pictures we have published at this time. Good night for now.
