Welcome Gracie!

I just wanted to take a minute to let you know I got the best Mother's Day gift ever! My little girl was born this morning!

I'll have pictures once we're home from the hospital. Until then, here's the details:

7lb 9oz, 20.5 in

I stuck it out through 27 hours and did it completely naturally -- nothing until after, when they convinced me to take a couple regular tylonol "just in case." We're both perfectly healthy and enjoying settling into a routine as a family of three. She's got a full head of hair and bright blue eyes -- simply lovely!

Thanks for all your prayers over the past week!

Congratulations! What a wonderful gift on Mother's Day! And, you lucky duck, you didn't even make it to 39 weeks! Can't wait to see her beautiful face!

Congratulations, Jenny! I'm so excited for you and Shaune, and so glad everything went well!

Good job Jenny, you did it! I'm so happy for you and proud of you! You just went through one of the hardest things a mother can do and came out on the other side with God's greatest gift to us after salvation. I'm so very, *very* happy for you both!

Dear Jenny, I am so sorry I didn't catch this post until today. I've been off Blogger for a little while (by no desire of my own)...and it made me miss your announcement! How wonderful that your little one was born on Mother's Day!! What a delightful gift! And what a lovely memory to cherish. I can't wait to see photos. I'm so very happy you went all natural and 27 hours! Wow!!

Much love to your little family of 3!!
