Welcome to the family

We welcomed "baby sister" to our family at 8:07am on August 14th weighing in at 9 lbs 4 oz and she was 21 inches long. Our big kiddo is officially a big brother and doing great! I'm voiding my no name policy for a day or so and then I'll update this to get rid of it but I thought all my new friends should get a chance to learn her name. She's nursing like a champ and we were home within about 9 hours of giving birth. You'll be hearing more about her birthday soon but I'm going back for another nap now! Thanks for your prayers, she's an amazing blessing!

Heidi, I have just got to a computer and checked out the posts, and I missed the baby's arrival! Congratulations to you both, and also to the proud big brother. Lovely lovely names, and lavely photos, too. I will be home this weekend, and will catch up more then. But I am SO happy your daughter has arrived and you are both well and happy. God is very very good.
