New Baby!

I'm pleased to introduce Berean Joyce, born March 7, 2010. She came into the world, after some waiting, with just two pushes. Her stats came in at 7 lbs 10 oz and 20 inches long. (I'll figure out later who won the contest. Some of you type A readers may beat me to it).




She came out so fast she picked up some bruising, hence the purple face. Otherwise, both mom and baby are healthy.

THANKS!

(I imagine we're yelling across a parking lot, not nose-to-nose.)

Yay! A girl is a wonderful thing to have! I'm so happy for you! You will love having a girl! The name is cute too!

Her first of many bruises to come…I think my nickname for her will be “bruiser”. Not because she will give so many, but rather because she will incur so many. Congratulations!

Oh yeah a girl! She is so cute - she looks like her brothers (and that is a compliment!). I can't wait to meet her! Congrats!

I think she looks a lot like her cousin Alethea. We have a picture from the hospital that looks just like the top one of Berean. We are so excited for you all!

Funny story, Deacon called to tell us he had a baby sister, but Peter couldn't make out the name clearly. It sounded like Brianne Joy. We thought, "That can't be right. It doesn't sound like a Noah and Julie name." And what do you know, we were right!

Congrats again and let us know if you need anything!

WOW!! Huge congratulations to you and your family. How wonderful.

And because I'm type A and also because I suspected I was pretty close in my guess, I think I won your contest :) I was 2 ounces and one day off.
