A Sister!

It Happened... 11/10/11

I know -- so close -- two more hours and the eleventh child would have been born on 11/11/11. But she wasn't patient enough to wait two more hours. Oh well, we'll name her Patience anyway. We're glad she's here and thankful to God that the delivery was easy (relatively, of course).

Patience Hope

Chapter 1 has begun.

In defiance of statistics and dreams and laws of probability and gut feelings (all of which were on Conrad's side), she is a girl. To mollify him, we let him hold her first.

8 lbs. 6 oz.

I want to be bigger... *wail*

When will it be my turn again?

Praise God.
