Itty Bitty Baby Greta

Posted on

With all Praise and Glory to God we welcome Margaret Mary, or, Greta into our family! She was born (in the caul!) at 3:25 Sunday Feburary 1 after two very short hours of labor. She weighs in at 8lb.s 2oz. and is 21.5″ long. Her siblings are all over her. Mary keeps saying “Sammy, slap me again, I think I’m dreaming!” She was born at home, just an hour after the midwife arrived. She came too fast for us to have the tub prepared for a waterbirth! God is SO good! Thank you all for the prayers.
*pictures forthcoming!
