Our Newest Blessing: Hannah Elaine!
Now, to start out, I have to admit she is the cutest baby I have ever seen. Now, about her...where should I start? How about a few weeks ago. Mom was really pregnant, and it was really hard for her. She couldn't stand up without feeling lightheaded, she was so exhausted, and just extremely sore. She is always late with her babies, and Mom did not want to wait longer than she had to, so she scheduled an induction for last Thursday, the day after her due date. However, God had other things in mind. While I was gone on Wednesday afternoon, her water broke while she was taking a nap (at 1:45). I came home 15 minutes later to find my 10 and 11 year old sisters at the door hurriedly telling me Mom's water had broken. Dad came home quickly, and they went to the hospital. It was a very quick and easy labor- Praise the Lord! Hannah Elaine was born at 6:47 on Wednesday, November 18. She was 8 lbs. 7 oz. (no wonder Mom was not feeling good - the one before was 6 lbs. 12 oz.!) Dad had recently got a new camera, and we have literally thousands of pictures of Hannah, and that number is ever-increasing... :)
