#9 Emily Jane Arrives - A Real Sweet Heart!

Emily Jane took her time getting here today. . .she decided to make her grand entrance on February 14th but after Mom's water broke in the night and her contractions started. . .
Emily decided to just delay her birth a few hours. . .
making this the longest Becky was ever in labor. . . almost 12 hours.
But. . .she was worth the wait.
After the slow start she decided to come quickly and the doctor almost didn't get there to participate.
She weighed in at 8 lbs. 1.6 oz. . . .20 inches long. . . with really dark hair.
It's darker than the pictures. . .it's almost black, not brown.

Here are a few pictures. . .of the many we took.
Her Mother did great as usual and looked great right after delivery.
Got up, took a shower and ate her supper. . .then visited with the family.
I hope she can rest tonight.
Just a few minutes into life. . .Emily Jane is bright eyed.

Feeling kind of chilly she snuggles up to Mom.

Kathryn, Becky, Jesse Frank and Jilly just can't believe how beautiful she is.

Kids get their first look at the new baby while Grandma Linda holds her. . .Dad looks pretty happy with his "arrows".
Grandma Linda is staying a couple of weeks with Stan and Becky to help them out. . .good memory making days.

Stan gives Kathryn holding instructions.

Jilly pleased with her new sister.

Brooklyn finally got a turn to hold Emily Jane.

PaPaw looks her over and  says she's "beeaauutttiifffuull!!"  Sarah called asking him
who he thought she looked like. . .he said an angel.

Now Gram is here with Pap and she admires the baby. . .she also changed Emily's first dirty diaper!
The kids were impressed!

I got to have some time with Emily before everyone else arrived. . .lucky me!  She is adorable.
God is good. . .all the time.

Before Emily even arrived, flowers and balloons were being brought to the room.
The cards were made by her siblings. . .Jilly's said,  'I hope you will be a good sister'.

Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD:
and the fruit of the womb is his reward.
As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man;
so are children of the youth.
Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them:
they shall not be ashamed,
but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate.
Psalm 127:3-5 (KJV)
