Welcome Home Gracielyn

Gracie or Gracie'Lyn( in southern accent :)

I just thought I would take a quick break while baby Gracielyn (affectionally called Gracie or Gracie' lyn with an affectionate southern drawl) is bonding with big sis. I so thank God for the age gap, as I was in desperatate need for a babysitter so I could take indulgent shower while Mark is running errands! I though I would just post a little photo of our sweet yet feisty addition to the family. She is holding her own and let me say her appetite is one that rivals her father's. I am going through that time of pre-let down and will be praising the heavens when milk happens! Hopefully I will have a moment to share the details of her delivery with you next week and post more picture. Enjoy your Resurrection Weekend and remember that Jesus and his sacrifice for us, enduring the humiliation and dying on the cross for us is why we have to always remain humble and ever knowing that we are so undeserving for all that he sacrificed for us!

Lil Miss Thomas

Gracielyn Jacquelyn Ann Thomas mde her long awaited debut today at 3:10 pm weighing 7 lbs 12oz and 19.5 inches long.

I must say that my labor and delivery today was the most easy and effortless day of the entire 9 months. I give Him all the glory and praise for that.
I am posting via moble blogger and can't figure out how to upload pics from my phone, but hope to post pics as soon as we can once we have made it home which may be tomorrow or Friday am. Thank you all for the prayers and support. I must go now I have a beautiful little one lying on my chest and I plan to spend all night inhaling the wonderful aroma of new baby smell! Be Blessed and Stay Encouraged!


Today is the day or so I pray... I have been admitted in the hospital! We checked in about 4 am so that they could start my drip around 5am. Although its something I really didn't want my hubs and I decided that due to my slow labor and the physical exhaustion I am experiencing that to plan her arrival would be beneficial for all of us.
My mom was here all last week waiting on her and is back this week to help with mu older girls. I feel so much more relaxed and less anxious as I know that my older girls have someone there to focus on them solely. This was actually the best decision for us all.
Contractions have started intensifying as I type so I will go now to pray and focus so that I can at least try and get through another hour or so before I start calling for pain intervention. So far I have been able to relax and nap, I'm going to see if I can try again! Keep us in your prayers and hopefully by afternoon I will post with an announcement!
