That's right - we're now "Mitchell - party of 4" and couldn't be more thrilled! James' hunch was right - he felt all along that there was a girl in there . . . course, he had that feeling with Brady too so maybe he's not so gifted after all. :)

Samantha Jane Mitchell arrived on Wednesday, August 5, 2009 at 7:21am via repeat c-section at Meritcare Hospital in Fargo, ND. She weighed in at 8 lbs 3.9 oz and was 19.5" long. Everyone is doing well. My recovery has been a little longer than with Brady, but thinking that's to be expected with a repeat section. Brady was very timid at first, particularly with coming to the hospital (he hasn't been in one that he'd remember) and seeing all the things that were attached to me seemed to scare him a little. Each time he came to the hospital, he was a little more comfortable and since being home has been a wonderful big brother and helper.

Enough talk - on to the pictures!
