She's Official

Tomorrow she'll be ten days old!  We can't get enough of her...

Adriah Faith was born on June 14 at 11:25pm.  She weighed 6 pounds 5 ounces, 20.5 inches long.  Dark hair and big dimples!  I'll write her little birth story in another post.

Adriah is pronounced AY-dree-uh.  We've always chosen Bible names, and this one is too... but it's a stretch.  It comes from the word "Adriatic", as in, Adriatic Sea, found in Acts 27:27.  We added the "h" at the end so it would match her sister's names (Selah and Jadah).  At this time in our lives, faith has been an essential part of our journey, and for what lies ahead.  So she is our little "sea of faith."

The verse we have chosen for her is Psalm 146:6
He is the Maker of heaven and earth, the sea and everything in them - He remains faithful forever.

Thanks to our families and supportive friends, our first week of transition to a family of six has been seamless.  If you've said a prayer for us in the past two weeks, God has been FAITHFUL and we feel uplifted and loved.  Can't wait for you to meet her in person!


Due Today!

I'm currently sitting in the doctors office waiting to have my membranes stripped (I said that just for Simon. He thinks that's the most awkward thing to say!) Today is my due date, although my last ultrasound measured me a week later. Never thought I'd still be pregnant by now! But am glad for the extra time. I've actually felt better in the last week than the 3 previous to it. I guess it helps that life has settled down somewhat and we haven't had many obligations. This morning I started priming my office area, so maybe I can get that painted before the baby comes? We'll see what happens after this appointment. :) Hopefully my next post will have a happy announcement! Josh and Ericka and Malachi (my sister and family) arrived last night to stay through the weekend, so I am going to have this baby while they're here(you hear that, baby?). I'm so thankful for their help already! Cheers.
