Introducing Grandchild # 9 !!!!

This new darling babe certainly does not look like a new born! Carma Nicole was born today, Monday the 28th of January, 2008 at 8:30 ish PM at a whopping 8 pounds 12.4 ounces and is 21 inches long. She took a long time coming and was even scheduled to be born emergency Cesarean section at 5:15 PM, but Her wonderful Midwife decided to check "one more time" and decided to let that babe take a little longer. Thanks Heavens for a Midwife who doesn't care about the time it takes out of her day and who's concerns about the health of the mother and baby are the #1 priority. Thanks also to Carma's Dad and Grandfather for giving her Mom a blessing and her Aunts, Uncles and especially her Cousins for praying for her safe entry into this world. The prayers of my fabulous grandchildren for their new cousin were answered, the faith of those children is awesome and inspiring. It was a long 20+ hours of labor at the hospital and that doesn't count the hours at home in labor. Congratulations to my dear daughter #4 and her loving husband on having their very first baby!
