He's Finally Here!!!! Welcome Home Oliver!!!

Dear Friends and Family:
We are happy to announce the arrival of Oliver Cole Galindo. He arrived on November 4th at 10:53 am. He weighed in at 9 lbs 7 ounces and was 21 inches long. Mom and baby are doing well and returned home from the hospital yesterday afternoon!

Sunday morning at 8:00 we reported to the hospital so Elizabeth could be induced. She was 4 centimeters and 100% effaced. The nurse didn't think her labor would be very long so she asked the doctor not to break Elizabeth's water until after she received the epidural. Shortly after 10:00 am our doctor came in to break the water. Elizabeth was already to 5 centimeters.... but the doctor soon discovered that little Oliver had recently flipped back around and was no longer head first. Within 15 minutes we were in the operating room for an emergency C-Section.

We are so grateful to finally have Oliver and are so glad that he's a healthy baby!! We hope you enjoy a few pictures... of course we have millions more already but we're tired so we'll just give a little preview! Enjoy!!

Roberto & Elizabeth
