Welcome Baby Caron!

Today has been one of the most incredible days of my life. I was blessed to witness the beautiful birth of my dear little neice (she has yet to be named!). Starting at 4:00 this morning, Mindy began having contractions and at 3:58 we met the efforts of her labor...a darling baby girl, 9 lbs-8 oz. and 22 1/2 inches long. Mindy's labor was very intense and exhausting for her but she did so well. She was amazing.

Getting started

"Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward." ~Psalm 127:3

"For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother's womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there were none of them." ~Psalm 139:13-16
Thank you Lord for this sweet baby girl. You are a good and awesome Creator!

You should've heard the shout go up in our house as the news was passed around! So exciting! What an adorable baby. Glad to hear that everything went well, though we'll be anxiously watching for a name for the sweet little girl.

Congratulations again! We are rejoicing with you!

I was so excited when you called to say she was in labor, and I debated waking up everyone else to tell them, even though they had a late night! I kept checking the blogs looking for pictures of baby..looking forward to meeting her really soon! Congratulations Auntie!

I think it's so sweet that you got to witness her birth. I was so privileged to be at the births of my nephew and niece. The most amazing experience I've ever had. I couldn't help but cry. Life is amazing... Babies are precious! Congratulations!
