Hooray for you!

"For quite a long time the world saved a place.
Millions were born, yet none filled your space."
"Until the second of a minute of one special day,
you took your first breath,
and the world said

My eyes welled with tears as I read the first 2 pages of the book "Hooray for You"; I felt that it was somewhat putting into words what I couldn't find words for. Ellery Jane came screaming into this world on June 24, 2010 and changed our world forever.  I'm not sure there was a dry eye in the operating room, as we celebrated and praised the Lord for the healthy arrival of our precious baby girl.  Family and friends prayed and waited anxiously and I'm told the grandmothers both burst into tears when Dr. Neville went to tell them all the good news. We LOVE my OB, Dr. Neville, and are so thankful for the care and love she has shown us. This was an especially sweet delivery for both of us, as she delivered Poppy last June.  We had a wonderful stay in the hospital and loved {almost} all of our nurses. ;) Below are some pictures from our stay, and of some of the proud family and friends that came to visit.  Blessed is an understatement. Our little girl is finally here and we are in love.

HOORAY for you, indeed.
"Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the
heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows."
James 1:17
