Surprise!


Alaina Ruth Howie made her entrance this morning at 6:58! She weighs 6 pounds and 15 ounces and is 19 3/4 inches long. We think she's absolutely beautiful, and we're so in love and so thankful for a safe delivery. The labor/delivery was quite a whirlwind, and I can't wait to share the story soon! We are all doing really well. Thank you so much for your prayers! We are overwhelmed with joy and thankfulness.

"The Lord has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy!"
Psalm 126:2-4
