She's Here!

Millie Grace Jennings is in the world! My water broke while I was sleeping at 1:45am. Contractions started a little after 2am. They were close together immediately. So we called some great babysitters from the college and got to the hospital at about 3am. At 6:31am we had another daughter.

She weighed 7.5 lbs and was 19.5 inches long. She has a head of dark hair, blond eyebrows and blond eyelashes. Her head to perfectly shaped. She's really adorable! This first day has been an easy one. She doesn't really cry. I didn't have to have any stitches, so I am feeling wonderful...a little tired, but I can't really sleep.

My mom brought the kids over around 3pm. They were IN LOVE. No one could keep their hands off Millie. It was very sweet.

I will try and post pics here in a little while. My mom thoughtfully brought the cord for the camera.

The doctors said there's no reason why we can't go home tomorrow and that is WONDERFUL news to me too! I hate being in the hospital...its so annoying getting your blood pressure constantly checked and always being asked if I'm ok. I'm not a good patient, I'd rather be home.

It meant so much to me to have Jody call and share the good news with me this morning. I started telling everyone around here about it and my family sends their love and prayer as well as my church family who has been hearing stories about you since the Uganda days. I am glad things are going great so far and know they will continue to do so. Millie Grace has definitely been born into a loving, Christian family. She is very lucky!

What wonderful news! I love the name Millie - is it a family name? I actually saw a posting that a fellow coworker named their little girl Millie Grace about a week ago! Small world! We are happy that you all are doing great and can't wait to see pictures! Blessings,

That is so exciting!


Congrats, Em! Sounds like it was an "easy" delivery (relatively speaking, of course... and what the heck do I know anyway?)

We will NOT be catching up with you guys at 4 kids, because "shops' closed"... but, er uh... we'll look forward to hearing more about the antics of the Jennings Crew!

"For real, doe..." Love you guys... hope to talk to you soon!
