And the excitement continues






We all joked that Ashley and Owen had to arrive home before Cristal and Gerry's baby could be born. We didn't expect that the baby was listening, but apparently, she was. Eight days before her due date, and just 24 hours after the travelers' return, we welcomed a new baby girl into our family.

All babies are special and this one is no exception. Her arrival has been long anticipated, and we are so happy to welcome her into our family. Aunts, uncles and grandparents gathered, held her, and marveled at her perfect newness. Thanks be to God!

I'll be busy for the next few days, helping where needed, and cuddling my new grand-daughter. If I'm not around the blogging world, you'll know where I am.

I'm so glad to have popped by! What wonderful news for you and all of your family. Is there a superlative for 'complete'? Surely you must be feeling it, whatever it might be!

Carole said...

Oui, les bébés écoutent :)
Elle est née le 7 juin alors, ou à quelle date (à cause du décalage horaire) ? Notre "petite" Laure fête ses 8 ans aujourd'hui... alors que j'ai l'impression qu'il n'y a pas si longtemps elle était aussi encore un nouveau-né.
