And her name is......

 The day she arrived. Olivia likes her....sometimes!
 with her daddy
 unfortunately this serious contemplative pose is the only one that came out okay...

 she has dimples!!!


It took the Social Security lady telling us she needed our papers by 8:30 am in order for us to choose a name for our new baby... If you don't remember we had troubles deciding. Alas, the nurse visiting our room at that moment helped us make the final decision, and the name is......


AMELIE FRANCES KORTMAN!!!!
Amelie (Ah-may-lee) (from the list---in the end my husband and I agreed on either Madeline or Amelie) **also happens to be my favorite movie ever, but that is coincidental....ish.
Frances (because of Francisco-my husband's name, Francis-my father's middle name, and Francisco-my husband's great grandfather)---and because you may remember he really liked the name "francisca" and was really trying to get that one in there at the last moment!

She arrived after a very easy delivery (yay!!!!) on Thursday, July 7, 2011 at 11:45 am. 8lb 1 oz, 20 in.


SIDE NOTE: thanks to everyone who has let me know they can help me out with my blog! I was contacted by someone who actually said they could help me do the whole thing!!! Thanks everyone for offering your knowledge and expertise, I really appreciate having so many people that read my blog, and ones that were willing to help me make it better.
