Welcome to the world baby girl!

She's here!

Joya Jae born this morning at 7:45am weighing in at 6lbs 10oz and 18 inches long.



So far she looks EXACLTY like Adie Grace did as a newborn... just 2 oz lighter and she even baked for a week longer!

It was a bit of a dramatic labor but I'll elaborate in a later post. =)

Daddy, mommy, big sister and new baby Joya are all doing great!

Joya even got Adie the Elmo doll as a present.. she's THAT thoughtful already! (And a great shopper)

Congratulations to you all!! Beautiful name..I bet her diapers look huge on her. =) When Mak was born, I couldn't believe how tiny he was. I pray that these next several weeks go smoothly for you all and that Adie loves being a big sister and a helper. =) Blessings..
