She’s here! Our precious baby girl arrived on Sunday, September 2nd at 10:39 pm.
Hosanna Elizabeth Thorndike is 7 lbs 11.5 oz and is 20.5 inches long. Her first name is one that makes us smile. Her middle name is among both sides of our family, so it fits perfectly. She is a sweet girl who is excellent at what she does –eat, sleep and poo!
Her delivery was the easiest and quickest of the three…I think I told the doctor at one point that I actually had fun! She came at 37.5 weeks which is the longest I've ever been pregnant! We are all home now and adjusting well. Jeremiah and Alison LOVE their sister. Jeremiah is always singing to her and making sure she is okay. Alison thinks Hosanna is her personal doll and showers her with kisses while also trying to drag her away to play! (-we’ll be keeping our eye on her!)
Thank you to all of you whose prayers and thoughts we felt. We love you all and hope to hear from you soon!
