New Baby Girl!!!

Our little girl arrived this morning at 10:30 am. Her momma was a rock star and the delivery was extremely smooth. She is weighing in at 8 pounds, 7 ounces and is 19.5 inches long. Everyone is doing well. We will be moving to our room this afternoon at Sharp Mary Birch and anyone can come and visit starting after 2.
Thanks for all the prayers and support, we will post more soon.



She already had a solid grip at 5 minutes old! Just chillin'!

The new addition to the family... and mom is looking great.

One of the little answers to prayer was being able to have a friend of ours, Michelle (who I went to college with) be on call last night. When we arrived we asked if she was working and she just happened to be here and was able to be switched to our room! It was a HUGE blessing to have her with us all night and taking care of us. Thanks Michelle. Sonya our Nurse and Dr. Barmeyer were amazing as well. It was a great experience.

WOW!!! I cry just looking at these beautiful pictures. Kara, I wish I was there to give you a hug and smell your sweet baby girl. I will be praying for you. I have to tell you a funny story. Today I was praying that you would see the beauty of Christ through your new baby and Marya kept saying, mommy, Kara can't see. Then I proceeded to try to explain to her what my prayer meant and you can only imagine how that went.
love you

Papa took a bottle of Silver Oak Cab to dinner so we could toast to our new grand daughter with our friends at the club. Mike has a name suggestion, JJ, short for Junior Junior, I told him you just might use that name! Love you all, Nana

Eric and Kara this is so great. Leeana and I love having you guys as friends and are so happy for both of you. Now the twins will have a friend to play with as they grow up!
We're here to help you guys, unless you're bailing us out with our two!
