We've Got Three Little Girls!

Announcing the birth of Felicity Grace!

Our latest addition to our family has arrived.  Felicity showed up on Saturday, April 6th 2013 at 2:59 am.  Weighing 8 lbs, 1 oz, Felicity is 20.5" long.  

Father Ben came over for dinner on Friday night for what turned out to be the last meal before baby arrived.  It looks like each year, we'll be having shrimp enchiladas for Felicity's birthday meal.  It's a tradition in our family to have the same meal we had just before baby arrived every year to celebrate.

After we put the girls to bed and got a game of cards started, Sarah's contractions meant that Father Ben had to head home earlier than normal.  A quick call to Nana got her on the ready, and within 30 seconds of Tim hanging up, he had to call her back to get her to our house NOW.

We got to the hospital around 10 pm, walked a few laps around the birthing center, got in the birthing tub, and by 3 am had a baby!  Now, mommy will tell you that it was just a bit more difficult than that, but you get the idea.

She has been a great baby so far.  She's been resting most of the day, eats well, and has been great to cuddle with.  We've had some visitors and it looks like we'll be home on Sunday. Please keep up the prayers, and we'll keep you updated.
