The baby is here!!!

This has been a world wind week. I can't imagine how Jacky, Pat and Alicia feel. CynCyn is worn out! It seemed like Kaitlyn was never going to get here and then all of a sudden at 4:20 Wednesday afternoon she made her grand appearance. Since dad is 6'10" and mom is 6' we were expecting an above average size baby. She didn't disappoint, making her debut at 10 lbs, 8 oz and 22 1/4 inches. When we got the text that she was here and announced the weight, the other families in the waiting room were just in awe of Jacky! I had to leave and go get Bill before I got my chance to hold her but we got back in time to watch through the nursery window and see her getting her first bath. This quiet little angel has a temper. She had her fists clinched and she was kicking while screaming at the top of her lungs! We got to hold just a few minutes later. I have to say that she is the 6th cutest baby ever born behind my daughter, son and 3 grand children. I'm sure my ramblings will include stories about little Kaitlyn in the months to come.

Heavenly Father, you sent you own Son into this world. We thank you for the life of this child, Kaitlyn, entrusted to our care. Help us to remember that we are all your children, and so to love and nurture her, that she may attain to that full stature intended for her in your eternal kingdome; for the sake of you dear Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
