Welcome Aubrey!

I'm sure everyone who reads this blog knows by now that Aubrey is here! She was born on the 12th at 9:58 am. She weighed 7 lbs 3 oz and was 19 and 1/2 inches long. She is absolutely precious. We're loving having her here. Parenthood is definitely not without challenges. We're a little sleep deprived. Nursing has been my biggest challenge by far. Several times I have come very close to saying, "I quit!" Thankfully, I have a wonderful support system. David has been wonderful and so encouraging. So we're still hanging in there with that. Hopefully we'll turn a corner soon and things will get easier. If you think about it, please pray that it will work out. I really want to be able to nurse, but I also want to be sure Aubrey is getting enough food and is healthy.

I'm going to type out the whole birth story and post it, but I haven't gotten a chance to do it yet. Motherhood is a full-time job! Hopefully I'll be able to do that soon! We will also post some pictures.

Just wanted to give a quick update. Thank you for all of your congratulations, prayers, and encouragement. It all means so much to us.

She's a doll -- and you're doing great with the nursing! Amen to the "full-time job" comment. You don't even get the holdiays off! :)
