She is here!
I present you, Claire Elza Luna!

I am not going to go into detail about the whole 4 days experience at the hospital, you can read that on Amy's blog shortly, but I will tell you that it was amazing! Here are a few thoughts on the endeavour:
-Although I did not feel them, contractions are the most painful thing I have ever seen. Amy was in a whole other state of mind. She did an unbelievable job staying focused and fighting through the pain.I was very surprised and proud of her.
-The actual birth was very, very emotional for me. If you know me, you know that I am little bit of a cry baby (Yes I cried at Marley and Me). But I was doing great, until I saw her face come out. That was it for me, the tears started to roll and it was hard to stop.
-We have only been home with her for about 5 hours, but I feel like we have already learn so much about her, ourselves, and the rest of out lives.

Here are some pictures:
