Straight from heaven...


Audrey Jane Messick
Born: Saturday, March 5th, 4:50pm
7lbs 2oz, 19.5 inches

The short story...
-regular contractions on and off all week
-Friday afternoon things got more serious but then calmed down so we went to bed
-Saturday at 3am I woke up with a hard contraction
-Counted contractions until 6am
-Called Grammy & Grandpa to come get the kids
-At the hospital by 8am
-Slow and steady progress all day--no big stories to report--thank-goodness!
-By 5pm we were holding our sweet little baby that is miraculously perfect in every way!



We feel so blessed to being holding such a little angel and grateful that everything has gone well with her birth.  Ryan and I are just throughly enjoying our time alone with little Audrey--kissing those soft little cheeks and soaking up all the cuddles that we can.  We are excited to start sharing her with her adoring and excited sisters soon!

Here's a little glimpse of heaven....

Audrey! Such a darling name. I wanted Seth to be an Audrey. She really is a little miracle baby! And I love it that her name has an "A" just like HAiley, MAyA, and Alice...and RyAn and JANAe. I love it that you went into labor on your own! March 5 is a beautiful time of year to have a birthday, Spring is full of hope. I am smiling at your happiness. Hugs dear friend.
