Baby Penelope is here!

Hi everyone! So excited to share the good news that Penelope Rose was born at 2:04 this morning. She weighed 10 lb 13 oz (no one could believe it!) and is calm, so sweet and snuggly. Everyone is enjoying getting to know the newest member of the family, and we are so thankful she arrived safely after 24 hours of active labor.

I’ll be back soon to share her birth story and updates (+ the usual fitness fare, recipes, and shenanigans), but in the meantime, I wanted to thank you for the kind wishes and love during this pregnancy. Hope you have a wonderful day and I’ll see you soon!
