Oh, Baby!

I am excited to record and share my birth story with everyone, but first I thought it would be best if I share the basics and some pictures of our beautiful new baby...


Last night, at 10:19pm, the newest member of our family arrived!

We are excited to welcome our new little one, measuring 20 inches long, and weighing only 7lbs. 2 oz. (Two whole pounds LESS than our last!). She has light, silvery hair, and rosy skin. She's getting lots of love and attention at our house!

We've decided to name her

Una (Oo-na-- A Welsh form of "Agnes", which is Rachel's Granny's first name)
Mildred (After Russell's grandma)

I'll post the amazing, wonderful, birth story in the next few days, but right now, I'm busy falling in love with
our sweet baby Number Eleven and getting lots of rest. (Or at least TRYING to...)

Thanks for all the prayers and well wishes!!! :-)


  1. Those cheeks are to die for! What a beautiful little girl! Congratulations!

  2. Oh Rachel she is absolutely beautiful!! Congratulations!!!

  3. Congrats! She's beautiful. How many girls does that make for you?

  4. I could use a little snuggle, sweet smelling euphoria moment with a newborn. She is soooo beautiful. I love the cheeks. She came ready to be nibbled. So happy for you Rachel you done good.

  5. Wow.. Look at that hair! Congratulations!!! She is PERFECT!

  6. Oh she's beauuuuutiful!!!! I love her name too! I am so tired of "common" names. We named our oldest Sarah after my G-Gma, and we ended up with FIVE Sarah's in our YW group. Ugh.
    Mildred was my beloved grandmother's name; I'm grieved I didn't use it :(

  7. Congratulations on the birth of your beautiful baby girl! I'm looking forward to reading your birth story. So happy for you and your family :)

  8. So precious! Congratulations on another beautiful baby! I know she will be cherished and she is blessed to come to such a wonderful family as yours.

  9. I missed this post!1 Congratulations. She is so beautiful.
