Welcome to our family Julia Drew Jones!

The day has finally arrived! We spent the night at the hospital while the process was begun to induce labor.  Becca is a trooper. She didn't have any pain meds overnight. About 6:00 in the morning they began the process preparing her for labor.  Dr. Williams said it may be dinner time before we would meet our precious bundle.  Julia and Becca had a different idea. By 12:30 she was ready to push and She and Julia worked together until 1:24. At that time we heard the wonderful cries of a newborn baby girl. Julia measured 21" and 7 lbs 8 oz. Julia and Becca are doing great!

Later in the afternoon our girls got to come up and meet their little sister.  It was a sweet time of family bonding. Of course Nadia had met a little sister in the hospital before and done great.  We were unsure how Lydia would do with meeting her.  They have been so excited about meeting "Baby Juli" for months. They both did fabulous. Each of them got to hold her on the couch in our room.  They each got to cuddle with mommy. And we got some great family shots of our new 5-person family.

Thank you for your thoughts and prayers during this time in our lives!
