Sophia Jacqueline is here

















Sophia Jacqueline is here and we are just thrilled. The photo above is me moments before we headed to the hospital at around 7:45pm Monday, Februray 15th. This was my actually due date with Sophia. I had been having contractions all day, but they weren't bad at all. Once I arrived at the hospital I was dillated to a 6 and 4 hours later we had Sophia with no medication and one push! It was just an amazing delivery experience.


Many people have told me through the last week of my pregnancy that they were praying for me and many more people have said that I was on their minds and in their prayers on that specific day. I was so humbled by so many people lifting me up in prayer, because to be honest I just wasn't able to pray for it myself. God blessed me and Rusty so much through the power of prayer. I wanted this experience to go so well and it exceeded my expectations.


Sophia Jacqueline was born at 11:06pm weighing 7lbs 13oz 21in. with dark brown, almost black, hair. Her middle name is here Daddy's Grandmother's name that passed this June. We knew her as Granny.


I will tell you more when I get time. Man, having two little ones is a lot of work, but we are really doing well, just a little tired.

Congratulations! What a wonderful blessing. I personally know, as you do too, that a sister (especially one close in age) is the greatest gift in the world! Have fun with your girls!
