Our little daughter, Sauntina LaVerle, has arrived! Born a week and a half early, Sauntina entered the world on Wednesday afternoon at 1:11 PM. She weighs 8 lbs., 3 oz., and is 20 inches long. Kendalyn was in intense labor for about 5 hours and had our little girl a few hours before her mother arrived from Alberta, Canada (who was on her way down to help with the birth! <g>).
Our neighbors helped us inflate and fill a tub for the water birth, and a dear lady from down the street stayed with Kendalyn the entire time since our midwife hadn’t arrived yet. Sauntina didn’t want to wait for the midwife and came 2 minutes before she arrived and into the arms of her father, who scooped her up and praised the Lord for a safe delivery with no complications.
We are blessed with a beautiful little family! Mother and baby are recovering slowly, but well. Thank you for your prayers!
