New Arrival

Well, I am sure a lot of you have heard, but here is the big announcement:
On October 4, at 1:30 am Eliza Renee made her way into the world, weighing 5 lb 13 oz, 18 1/2 inches long. Thanks be to God for a safe delivery and healthy baby!

Once we saw her little face, all mixed emotions fell away, and we just instantly fell in love. Our little peanut is home and we are all doing well… tired but well.

So here are some pics for those of you who’d like to see who she resembles. So far I have come up with the profound conclusion; she looks like one of ours. 🙂

    She’s simply beautiful! What a lovely, classic name. I was just reading about J.D. Rockefeller, and it was likewise his mother’s name, reportedly a wonderful influence in his life.
    So nice to have the two girls close in age, too. Enjoy this season which passes by all too quickly.
