She's Here!

3 1/2 Days of labor, a new midwife, a very long and hard road, and we have a new little one that we did end up having at home! She has yet to be named, but in a moment of weakness Jeromy told me that after all I went through, I get to name her. For now, baby girl Markwort was born on April 2nd at 4:40 pm, weighed 7lb 7 oz (my smallest so far!), and was 20 inches long. She is perfect, nurses like a champ and has VERY excited siblings! I will post a birth story for those interested sometime soon. For now, I am concentrating on making up some sleep after 3 nights of not getting any. Feel free to call, we'd love to talk to all of you who have kept us so covered in prayer. Thank you so much! Enjoy the pictures

how wonderful! congrats to you Samantha and Jeromy, we are so happy for you all. and yes of course can not wait to hear the whole story. and we can relate to not having a name...Asher wasn't until he was 3 days old, which was kinda fun to get to know him a bit before we named him.

and we are expecting our 4th baby in November. we are all excited and especially for me to be feeling better...feeling oh so sick. we will be praying for you all. congrats again, she is so beautiful!!
