Olivia Jenae Has Arrived!

Praise God!

Precious little Olivia Jenae has blessed us with her swift arrival.

Olivia was born early this morning at about 1:30 AM after a brief and reasonably manageable labor. Janice did wonderfully during the labor and is now tired but doing very well.

Olivia is a beautiful healthy baby girl weighing 6 lbs 14 ounces and measuring 20 inches.

She takes after her big brother Jackson and is already happily nursing like a pro. (Jackson came out looking for food and has always been a great eater. You can tell by how tall he is.)

What a blessing Olivia is! We are so very thankful to have her here with us. (I’m looking forward to her cousin Sophia arriving soon too. Hopefully she will have as smooth of a delivery as Olivia had.)

Olivia’s middle name is Jenae which means “God has answered our prayers.” And He truly has.

We thank the Lord for bringing Olivia Jenae to be with us.

I will post photos tomorrow (or later today I should say.)

Thank you all for your prayers and well wishes!
