It was 8:07 local time (EDT). One of the nurses noted "It's 7:07 in Chicago". I looked at the clock, and, yes, exactly 8:07. I couldn't resist telling everyone that it was 7:07 eastern standard/central daylight :-)

Hi I'm a lurker, just logging on to one of my favorite food sites to see if I can find some recipes for the weekend, and instead see this wonderful news! Congratulations to you both. Having a kid is the greatest - nothing comes close.

Hi guys,

Phew -- Sammy is fed and changed and I am taking a little break :)

Thank you so much for your good wishes!

Yes, we are huge Pullman fans. That's where the name Lyra comes from.

Tonight is her 1 week birthday. Jason and I are celebrating with medium-rare burgers (the only thing I denied myself in pregnancy ;)

Got to run.

Cheers,
-Helen
