Baby Rachel has Arrived!

Well, our precious Rachel Claire has arrived! She was born 11/16/2009 at 2:58 p.m. weighing 7 lbs. 12 oz., measuring 21 inches. She came quickly into this world (as it should be) and had moderate difficulty breathing until the NICU nurse whacked her on the back and cleared those lungs immediately! Here are some pictures of her shortly after her arrival.














We feel so blessed to have had things go smoothly today and know that Rachel will bring such happiness and joy! We will post more very soon.

Blessings! Greg and Joy
