A New Mama is Made.


Martha has officially arrived.....my newest niece was born this morning at 7:30(ish) am, weighing 7lbs and 8oz and is 20 1/4 inches long. She is extremely cute with blond hair and blond eyelashes and very rosy pink skin. Lizbeth is doing great after 28(ish) hours of contractions! I took some great pictures of Mama and Baby but I promised that I wouldn't post those pictures. :(
David is a proud papa--taking control of diaper duty.


Henry is clapping for his newest cousin! Really, he is trying to clap....I am too tired to explain, but get ready to read all about Henry's first "baby trick" in a future post!

FYI--Lizbeth was also 20 1/4" long at birth. Laura and I were scared Lizbeth might have a C-section, so we are thrilled with baby Martha's arrival the good ole fashioned way.
