A Heart Full of Thanks

My son called early
Saturday morning, 
"We've been at the hospital since 12:30 am.
She is now at 8 cm. You may want to come."

"Where is Connor?"

"He's with Aunt Lori (Christina's aunt),
and they will be here shortly."

At 12:00 noon, Chad comes out 
and says, 
"We're getting ready to push."

Cora Joy Hitchcock
is born at 12:30 p.m.

For this we prayed.

Mommy, Daddy and Baby were able to spend
some special tender moments together
before the mad rush of everyone.

Daddy tells BIG brother all about
his Baby sister, Cora.

Special privileges are made for the PA.

I got my first glimpse through the nursery window.
(I snuck in!)

Cora weighed 8 pounds and 3 ounces.
What a pretty head of hair!

At first glimpse,
Cora looked just like Connor.

The next she looked completely different.


and BonBon are in awe of
God's perfect creation!

We are in LOVE!

She's already got her daddy wrapped around her little finger.

I'm already making plans for my next trip to Nashville.
Three weeks is too far away!

With a Heart Full of Thanksgiving,
