Introducing our daughter, Bronwyn Elizabeth Jones! This little girl surprised us and defied all of our predictions: a boy, not too big and probably born at night with a long labor, like most all of my others. Everything along the way was a surprise with this one. A short labor starting at 2 in the morning and ending at 9:55 in the morning. Then she was a girl when we were very mentally prepared for a boy. When the midwife weighed her, she came out at 9 lb 2 oz, matching my biggest baby previously, which was Samuel. Everyone was startled at that. I honestly didn't think this was one of my bigger babies. Goes to show, you never know and God likes to keep his sovereignty before us.
Our wonderful midwife. What a blessing we feel it has been to have her help that has allowed us to have our last two babies at home. I have especially felt the blessing of being at home with this birth.

Siblings getting a chance to see her.
I took this picture this morning, when I was waking her up to feed her after several hours of sleep for the both of us. A good night's rest that will hopefully lead to a smooth transition and recovery.
This was a very peaceful alert time for her. She laid and looked around, very still and quiet for several minutes.
And back to sleep with Dad by breakfast time. :)
