I have wonderful news! Our daughter Laura and her husband Darren have a new little daughter, born today: Carly Annalise. We are so thankful to the Lord for Carly’s safe arrival. At birth, Carly weighed 6 pounds 12 ounces, and was 19 inches long.
Here’s an interesting comparison. Laura is a twin, and I carried her and her sister Sarah full-term (actually a week or so over). At birth, Laura weighed 6 pounds 5 ounces and was 20 inches long. Her sister weighed 6 pounds 10-1/2 ounces and was 20 ¼ inches long.
Here’s an old photo of our family. I’m holding Laura and Sarah on my lap. Our son Philip is by Rick, and Rick is holding baby Michael.
