The Wait is Over!


Please meet my new granddaughter Ilse Aoibheann Winckler! As you can see she knows how to use her tongue already. :)

I was called over to my dd's home mid-morning and labor was progressing, however, baby's head position was problematic. With some "encouragement" from the midwife, then a short break from contractions, Ilse decided to change from posterior to anterior and soon made her appearance at 11:54 a.m.

Weighing in at 9 pounds 7 ounces, and 21-3/4 inches long, she fits right in with the rest of her family.

We're praising God for His mercy in safely delivering another healthy child to our family!

You can visit her webpage here.

Congratulations Grandma!!!! She's a beauty...can't quite tell exactly who she takes after, but we've decided a nice combination of both sides of the family!!! Wow, she weighs more at birth than Gracie does now at 8 weeks!!! She's longer too!!! We're so glad to hear that everyone is doing well and thankful for her safe arrival!!!
