Emerson Claire Wiebe is FINALLY HERE!!!

To all of our fellow bloggers: Here are all the details. I (James) now have not one, but TWO beautiful daughters. And one very excited wife! Emerson Clair Wiebe was born at 6:21 pm April 23rd. She weighs 8 lbs 4 oz., and is 20 3/4 inches long. Amy started having contractions Tuesday night around midnight and continued on into Wednesday morning. As of Tuesday, she was scheduled to go in at 7:30 Wednesday morning to have her OB break her water, and so kept that appointment. After that was done, she had contractions all afternoon, which ended with a super successful delivery. Mom and baby are both doing excellent. Below are some pictures. Thanks for all of your thoughts, encouragements, and especially your prayers. We had dozens of people praying that Amy would go into labor Tuesday night, and out of the blue, with no other indications that that would happen...Poof...she went into labor without being induced. God is good! We were so happy to have so many friends and family members come for a visit last night! It was a special occasion. Amy had a decent night following delivery, and Emma is feeding very well.

Can you tell that Amy is delighted here?
The new family of 4.

We love you guys and miss you so much! It is special moments like this that make me say, "Hey I am suppose to be there to hold her!!" It isn't fair!

Emma is a DOLL! We're so happy for you guys, and I'm still in shock about how amazing Amy looked after it all! Just that she did it the way she had hoped, is so impressive to me!

God bless your growing little family. :)
