A week early

A quick note to all-

Over the past several days, both Christy and I have had very little sleep - especially Christy - due to the new addition to the Hostetler clan. Madeline Grace Hostetler was born on 10/14 at 9:47pm via VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean). She weighed 6lbs 12oz and was 19 1/4 inches in length. Both she and Mom are doing great. So far, Mason is doing pretty good with his little sister now home. I'll be taking the next 6 weeks off from work to spend time with the family.

Here are some pics:

Lastly, a big thanks to family who helped take care of all of us during the past few days.

Now for some much needed sleep!
