She's Here! She's Here!! She's Here!!!

I just wanted to take a minute to let you know Eliza arrived early this morning at 2:08am. Daddy skillfully caught her while we were in the birthing pool.

She's a doll with some brown hair and a beautiful round head, smooth baby skin... I love it! She's been very alert and so sweet. Her weight was 9lbs 8oz and she was 20 1/2 inches long. She's nursing well, pooping well, and sleeping well. All siblings were pleased as punch to meet her. Mia got to witness her grand entrance as she woke up and said she heard me and it rhymed with her dream so she knew Eliza was coming. All the pictures were taken off my mom's camera so it will take another day to get them. I know you're anxious, I'll hurry.

Praise the Lord! Thank you for Eliza Bella Marie and a wonderful homebirth experience. I'll write up the details later.

Lord, lift me above my own narrow horizons, that I might fulfill your true vision for me. - B.J. Hoff
