New Arrival

After 13 hours of labor, on July 27th at 10:04 pm, Sierra Paige decided to grace us with her presence. She weighed 7 lbs 8 oz 19.5 in. long. She arrived here safe and sounds. Although there could have been some serious complications (ie . . . There was an actual knot in the umbilical cord, and it was wrapped around her neck, the doctor said if either had been any tighter she might not have made it). We feel very blessed to have our healthy baby arrive here safe.


Sierra and her very proud Father!
Sierra is such a sweet little baby, Morgan and David are loving her to pieces. Any time she cries Morgan will go to her and say "It's okay, I'm here." Every time David sees her he gets a big smile on his face and says "baby." He loves to rub her head.
Both Mom and baby are doing great!

Yeah! You finally posted some pictures. What a sweetie! I can't decide who she looks like, but she has the dark hair like you had when you were born. Oh how sweet!

I thought I had commented weeks ago. Sorry for the delay. Sierra is very cute. Now I am really betting the baby bug.

You busy little mommy. What a cute family you have!

We may not have it all together, but together we have it all.
