Esther Louise

Here she is!! Our sweet surprise!! Esther came yesterday at 6:00 p.m. My mind is boggled - my eighth baby and she arrived with me really having nothing ready. I've never had an early baby - they have all been late (except the ones induced but I had warning and they weren't nearly this early) This time there was No warning - one minute going through my day the next water everywhere and we were flying off to the birth center - three hours later our tiniest baby made her appearance. She weighs 6 lbs 4 ozs. over 2 lbs smaller than her sibling were. She beautiful and very healthy. God has blessed us incredibly!! We are thrilled she is here!!!

Falling in love!!!

Looking for her thumb

Her ears are about the size of a quarter. So very tiny!!!

I love her name too.
Thanks for sharing!
God is so good that she will be about 2 months old by the time we start school! Cant wait to see her face to face.
Praying for you all,

What a way to get out of having to come and visit me at my house this week! You know I am kidding!

She is so precious and so very cute!
Enjoy those 3 days of rest your hubby is insisting on! Soon enough you will have to be in full swing with everything!
I can't wait to get to hold this little gal. She will have lots of mommy arms this school year begging to give her a hug and a cuddle! I better finish this comment...I have 2 girls here that can't wait to the the pictures of the baby! Blessings to you all!

I was looking back in your blog~ Those early pictures of Esther are adorable!
One funny thing I saw was that you said out of all your babies none have ever come early. That's funny to me because out of all my babies none ever ever came early except the most recent, our ninth. Isn't that wierd. Here I thought I knew so much and boom! God surprises me once again.

I saw you were in WA. My oldest son is stationed in Wa. We're aching for him to come home which should be in Jan 09, we hope :-)

Enjoying your blog~ Cinnamon
