The day we welcomed Susanna...


Susanna Grace Munck
 
Born: August 7, 2013
Wednesday
9:55PM
Weight: 6.8 oz
Length: 20 1/2 in.


 
Susanna's birth was fast and my easiest labor.....

 
We arrived at the hospital and
 in less than 2 hours Susanna was in our arms!
 
The gift of another daughter, we were so excited and surprised.....
waiting to find out the gender at birth is so much fun!

Foot prints...
each unique and handcrafted by the Lord.

My friend and midwife Linda,
she has always been such a wonderful support
 for me and my family,
praying for me/us and encouraging me.
 
 
Since it was late most the children were asleep
 so only a few came to visit after Susanna's arrival.
Elizabeth, Rebekah, Madison, and Ruth Ella who couldn't sleep until she saw that baby!
Ruth Ella just knew that Baby M was going to be a sister!
The girls took off Ruth Ella's jammies, dressed her pulled her hair back and off they all 4 came to meet their newest sibling :)
 

 
I'm pretty sure it was love at first sight...

Each child special, each child loved, each child filled the gap in our family where something was missing....them!

She is so beautiful. I had tried to comment on the 7th to say that I thought that would be a great day to have a baby. Our babies are two months apart to the day. :) I believe that Mary Ann is exactly 4 months older than our Mercy. Anyway, so happy that all went well. Loved the pictures. Can't wait to hear more. She was such a tiny little bundle. Have your babies always been tiny? :) Enjoy her as I KNOW you are! I have been checking in here A WHOLE LOT!!! Glad you updated for us all.
