Very early this morning, at 5:13am, a beautiful baby girl was born to our dear friends, Steve and Rebecca! After a LONG labor (nearly 36 hours!), Leah Mae made her entrance into this world, weighing in at 8 pounds, 9 ounces and 21 inches in length. We had the pleasure of meeting this sweet baby girl this afternoon. Mom and Dad are great. Exhausted, but in awe of and in love with this new life. And Leah is completely perfect! So beautiful, has a gorgeous head FULL of hair, and, so far, is proving herself to be a great sleeper! Let’s hope she continues with that tonight so that her poor parents can get some rest. Please, everyone, pray for SLEEP for all of them so they can enjoy these first few days as a family of three.
Thank you, Steve and Rebecca, for sharing your girl with us this afternoon. She is PERFECT! There is NOTHING like getting to know your first-born in these early days. Treasure each and every exhausting moment with her.
Welcome to the world, Little Leah. What a special blessing you are. We love you and are praying for the woman that you will grow up to be. We are so excited to watch you as you grow!
