Larin & Dave Knapp and Beautiful New Daughter!
Finlee has arrived from heaven. I wrote a few notes on an old ward bulletin from my purse... at the hospital:
I'm so glad we left Larin all those cheers on her blog because she had the baby this night. Her precious bundle came and we all were so surprised.....
I'm so jealous of Larin's epidural! How sweet. I could have had as much fun having a baby! Larin just killed me. She was 10.3. Weird! 'Cuz that's her birthday, too. She was my only induced-baby and Jeanie, my best friend, started bawling on the phone when I told her that was going to be induced at the hospital. Little did I know.... it would just be one huge contraction and no pain killers.
Larin's experience was exciting, she had the adrenalin without the pain, and felt like a million bucks right after the baby arrived. It was extraordinary in so many ways. The big plus was that she was in shape from walking constantly. I barely remember walking....but I did a lot with her pregnancy.

I loved standing over there... listening at the door and listening to Larin's delivery of her little, baby girl...her first little cry and all of us huddled around the door with our thumbs up and trying to keep it quiet and not jump around like the excited fans we really are!
The baby was so prepared by Heavenly Father. Steve took a video of me holding the baby. I actually just came in and swipped Finlee out of Larin's arms. Finlee turned to each person as they spoke. Before we came inside Finlee was crying and suddenly stopped when she heard Dave's voice... and turned to look at him. How neat is that? We all are so blessed.
We looked here name up here at the hospital on Steve's tiny, tiny phone that has Internet. It means for a girl, "Sunbeam" in
Go to Knappy Crew to see more pictures. Yikes! I have the movie!
Notice that my voice get really high after she smiles, it turns upside-down. She's probably thinking my high-pitch voice is a cry. Babies come to earth with a lot. And...we don't realize their gifts!
