Thank you for your well-wishes and prayers for our family~ they must have done their magic, for we were indeed blessed to be able to have our new little one at home, delivered into the loving arms of her father. She was our fourth unassisted homebirth, and was born on AnnaMarie's thirteenth birthday, May 31st.
AnnaMarie's first birthday present, Miss Rebecca Mabel Graham~
Another sister to make birthday cakes and do hair for someday :) .
Audrey wants her for her own! We'll see ;)
So far, Frankie seems fairly unaffected by Rebecca's arrival.
Evangeline says, "Her's cute, isn't her?"~
~And we must agree!Mother and baby are both doing well, with lots of older sisters to help hold and change the little Miss. People who assume having a large family must be horrible for the mother don't realize how much help those older siblings can be! We feel it a privilege and a blessing to be the parents of both a girl who is quickly approaching womanhood, one who has just begun her life's journey, and all those in between.
May all of us be blessed at this time of life, and embrace those whom the Lord has placed into our lives and hearts.
