Message from Ellen

Hello everyone! This is Ellen, a friend of Bek's. Just letting you guys know that Rebekah had her baby (she's on maternity leave right now, sans computer, hence the message from me.)

Melody Raine was born (okay, now bear with me, because I honestly can't remember the specifics) the Wednesday before Christmas, about 10:30pm, at their house (homebirth.) She was about 7 pounds, 11 oz. and 20 inches long. Her contractions started at work, around noon, and Melody appeared that night. According to Bek, labor (no drugs) was "hard, but do-able."

I saw her last week and she seemed tired but happy. Melody is cute as a button, looks a bit like her daddy, and has chubby little cheeks.
