Baby is here!

CKB and I are so thankful to announce the arrival of our newest blessing - little Miss Baby arrived at 11:54 a.m. on January 27 after a short labor. She weighed 7 lb. 2 oz. and measured 20 inches long. She is doing great and is absolutely beautiful. At present, she has medium/dark brown hair.

All of her siblings are thrilled to finally see their baby sister and can't stop talking about her, oohing and aahing over her and touting her adorableness and cuteness every time they lay eyes on her. :)

We are so very thankful to God for a safe delivery for Miss Baby and myself. We came home from the hospital the following day and have been resting since then. My parents are in town helping w/the children and the household things that never cease, even in the wake of such a wonderful miracle as the birth of a new baby. We're very thankful for all they have done and continue to do in order that CKB and I can rest and focus on Miss Baby right now.

Here are some pictures of our sweet baby girl. Thank you all for your prayers for us during my pregnancy - they mean so much to us.


1 day old and wide awake!


TINY fingers!



The ride home....
