Pictures Of Shenandoah's First Day...

The big day had finally arrived. I woke up at about 4:45 in the morning and saw some lights on in the living room. I went out to see what was going on and saw that Mommy was walking around. She said she had been having some regular contractions and thought she might be in labor. I was the first to know that mommy was in labor, because she had not gotten Daddy up yet! I went back to bed and about an hour later Daddy came in to tell us that Mommy was truly in labor. Mommy labored in hers and daddy's bedroom. The six of us children tried to wait patiently. We could barely contain our excitement!!! Finally (after a total of 9 hours) everything got quiet and we listened intently. Then... we heard the baby cry!!! We couldn't wait to find out wether we had a new little brother or sister and to see our newest little blessing from the Lord. It was about a half and hour before they were ready for us to come back and meet... our new little sister!!! We were all so excited!!!

Our first look at our new baby sister.


Talking to Mommy (she said I'd be in big trouble if I posted the picture of her!!!)

Ms. Ruth (our midwife) weighing Shenandoah.

Measuring Shenandoah's head and chest. Her head was 14 1/2 inches and her chest was 15 1/2 inches!!!

23 inches long!!!

The picture speaks for itself. :)
