She's here!!!

I know Pusher, Turtle and others have been checking in occasionally and wondering since it's been a while since my last post. Well, your wondering and waiting are over!

The contractions Tuesday early early morning were for real. I went to bed after my last post (about 4:30 am) and started having contractions every 6 minutes. Those lasted for a while, then I got up and we got ready to go. Once they were every 4 minutes, we called in to let them know we were coming, called Gramma Yori and asked her to hit the road, woke up Pumpkin about 7:30 and went in.

Well, to make a short story shorter, we officially checked in at 8:20 am... and our new baby arrived at 9:04 am! Yeah, that's no typo - it was under an hour of hospital time before she was born. I'll probably do a more-details-than-you-wanted labor and delivery post another day, but once they broke my water there, things hit overdrive. (And no, that is not enough time in which to get an epidural!)

So we're all ecstatic that our little girl is now here. Mr. Kluges is paranoid about the internets, so we won't be sharing her name on this site, she was 7 lbs. 10 1/2 oz. and 21 inches long. (That's like a pound & a half more than Pumpkin was!) She arrived bright and early at 9:04 am on Tuesday, May 1st and Pumpkin is thrilled to be a big sister!

Tell your husband to e-mail us some pics and the name! (and your address, but I promise not to send clothes) Or is it that you haven't *actually* decided on a name yet? ;) Take care!
