A Little Girl!

Our sweet bundle of joy has finally made her appearance! Six days past her due date, she was born early Saturday morning ten minutes after getting to the hospital.  Because of the shortage of midwifes in  Saskatchewan, our midwife was unable to come to our house for a home birth, which is what I would have preferred. But God blessed us with a healthy delivery after three hours of labor and we are so thankful for our precious little girl!

Here she is! :) 

Lydia Faith
Born September 29, at 5:50am
8lbs. 10 oz. 
Almost 20 inches long

Our new little sweetheart :)

For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother's womb. I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. Psalm 139:13-14

She's beautiful and very perfect. :) I'm glad she is here safely and that the labor was not as intense as it could have been. Happy days!!

Thanks for updating us! Lindsey showed us one picture but I was excited to see others. She has so much hair.
