Announcing Aimee Grace

On Saturday Evening, after 13 hours of labor (about 11 of them with minimal pain) our third daughter was born at 10:33 pm.

We have a child-naming pattern. All of our boys’ names start with B,C,D,E and F (but not in that order).

Our girls’ start with Ad and An.

3 Daughters.

3 Daughters.

Now we have an Ai.

Aimee Grace was born with fairly long light brown hair. She is our second smallest, at 7 pounds, 10 ounces.

It’s been almost eleven years since I gave birth to E, our youngest biological child. He just asked if he could change Aimee’s diaper.

And it’s been more than five year since we adopted F. But the memories and skills are coming back.

We feel blessed and amazed that in God’s grace, he would gift us with another life!

By the way, here’s my husband’s post about our new daughter. It has more information.


The Last Nine Months

I’m writing this from a hospital room – for a good reason. I should have told you about this earlier.

Last summer, after thinking I was no longer able to have a baby (since I haven’t been pregnant in seven years), we received the happy news that I was pregnant.

The pregnancy has gone well. In fact, I think this has been was easier than my last few pregnancies. I’ve been much less tired. And my kids are much older. They can help out!

But now I’m at 38 weeks and the doctor was concerned that my blood pressure was too high so we’re inducing today!

Please pray; It’s been almost eleven years since I’ve given birth.

I’ll let you know!SAM_2769
