Let Me Introduce You To......



OUR DAUGHTER!!!!

PRESLI DENAE


born Sept 2, 2009
6lbs 15 ounces
19 3/4 inches



I will blog the detailed version of her birth in the days to come, but let's just say I arrived at the hospital at 2:25 AM and was holding her in my arms at 2:57 AM! We got home yesterday afternoon and I'm feeling AMAZING! I feel good enough to run a marathon (or at least some quick sprints at the very least:)

I cannot put into words how thankful we are for such an amazingly healthy baby girl and a wonderful delivery/recovery that only God could be responsible for. He was in every detail and she was definitely worth the year we prayed and waited on her.

Thank you for all your prayers and encouragement along the way.

And please forgive me in advance for the obnoxious number of pictures I'm sure to post in the days, weeks, and months to come!

She is absolutely beautiful! Congratulations!!

The last part of your blog encouraged me in such a big and deep way... thank you for including that little reminder that God is responsible for some pretty wonderful things. When His plan finally shows up in the sweet face of a baby girl, it is wonderful! :)

I KNEW IT!!! I just had a feeling a daughter was on her way to you!!! I'm so excited for you- you are going to love having one of each. There is nothing in this world that will humble you more than knowing you are responsible for the shaping and molding of a woman. It is an awesome responsibility, but such an incredible blessing! So happy for you friend! This news made my day!!

I am so stoked!

You just made my day. The computer is running slow and, as I was waiting for this page to load I thought, "SHE HAD THAT BABY!" And you did!

And it's a GIRL!

Rejoicing with you, sweet friend. Absolutely thrilled. Truly. Thank you, Lord, for Presli.

Congratulations! She is beautiful. I already think she looks like you. And I'm not usually good at that game.

I am so thankful that you feel great. I look forward to hearing about the birth.

Has she said "Aunt Autumn" yet? I can't wait to hold her and kiss all over her smoochable cheeks. With as fast as you had her you should have stayed at home ;)

A girl! What a blessing! So happy for you and can't wait to see the obnoxious amount of pictures.

Cindi said...

Oh my! I love those pictures...the one with Park holding her...he looks joyous! And she has her eyes open...every time I've seen her she's been sleeping. That's okay, I'll get plenty of chances to get lost in those beautiful eyes!
Love you and thank you for the beautiful grand daughter. God is so AWESOME!!!! And btw...tell aunt autumn that she will say grandma first!
