NEW LIFE on Resurection Morning!!!

With great rejoicing in His perfect gifts, 
and awe at His abundant mercy
we introduce you to:

Aloria Mercy


She is a pudgy, scrumptious little cupcake she is!

Miss Aloria arrived into Daddy's hands at 12:20 am on April 24, 2011
(what was I afraid of again?)


She measures 22 inches long and weighs 8 pounds 14 ounces!  
"weigh her again..."  I said, "...I don't believe you"

Later that morning she was discovered...























Susanna discovers her hair.... and a bow for it.
Bryce discovers her tiny nose.



























































LOOK at all that puffy, scrumptious pudge!  Oh MY!  She'll even out later :-)


































Someone discovers her cheeks!


















And Clay...


































Thank you for your prayers!  I know the Lord answered them because I am the
most blessed recipient of His great favor!!!

More to come later, but 'scuse me... I have some cheek-smooching to do!!!

My heart is rejoicing with you dear friend. The smoochey cheeks. The squishy-ness of newborns. The soft soft skin. Her beauty shines ♥

You are so blessed. I cannot wait, oh wait, yes I can :-) to hear about how your labor went. And how God was there with you every single blessed minute.

Seeing her sweetness makes me want to have another one right now. And Rosie is only 2 months old!!

Consider yourself {{HUGGED}} and give little Aloria and gentle little kiss from me ♥

btw, LOVE her name~

Ashley said...

Congratulations!!!! What a beautiful baby girl! (And a most lovely name for her too.) Oh, I am so SO excited for you all! Congrats!!

Lauren said...

Congratulations!!! This is the second "blogger friend's baby" to be born on Resurrection morning! How exciting!

She's just adorable - and yes, gorgeously pudgy and squishy! : )

What a little (big!) blessing!

(I'll have to confess I'm very glad she's here. With both of my first pregnancies, I ended up "beating" most of the other moms I knew who were due before me, since my babies were so early! I'm very thankful to see all of my expectant friends having their babies one by one this time around ... before me! Now if my sister-in-law - who was due yesterday - would just hurry up! ;D)

SarahS said...

Congratulations!!!! Welcome Aloria! She's beautiful:) Love all the pictures (you amaze me by the way, I would Not have it that together ;-)

Shauna said...

Oh 'Lene, how blessed you are!
Welcome little lady!

JENNIFER said...

UNBELIEVEABLE! I miss reading the blog for one weekend... and you go into labor and deliver the cutest pair of chubby cheeks ever! Cant wait to hear all the yummy details, including how to so that maybe my 7th baby will be without a nasty induction... peace and cheek smooching. May God continue to bless you with a good nurser and a fast recovery.
