 You know I always have a story to tell...but it's just pictures for today :)  I'll fill you in on the details as soon as I get a chance.  Also, we just want to thank everyone for your love and support and prayers and thoughts over the last little while.  We are so very blessed to have each of you in our lives.

We were honored yesterday at exactly 10:53 am, to welcome this sweet angel into our family.
Gracelyn Jayne
Did you know Jayne means "Gift from God"?
We thought it was very fitting.

She was 8lbs 4 oz
and 21 1/2" long

Can you tell she stole her Daddy's heart?
Just like that.

We spent a lot of time staring into each other's eyes, her and I.
This was my beautiful view.

 Sweet big sister

This little boy has prayed for 'baby Gracelyn' more than anyone else, I think.  He loved her in my belly for the entire 9 months (or 100 months, or whatever) before he actually met her.

And Hayley doesn't ever want to put her down.  She is determined to be Gracelyn's favorite.

Just thought you'd all like to know what we experienced in our hospital room all day, starting at 7:30 am.
Awesome, right?

We did have professional pictures of Gracelyn taken today at the hospital.  I figured Grandmas and Grandpas would be interested in taking a look, if no one else

More soon. :)
