Emma Grace Sams has arrived!!


Emma Grace arrived on November 3rd at 8:21a.m. She is 7lbs 13 oz and 19 inches long. She was my smallest baby, therefore a easier delivery. The Lord answered my prayer and my epidural worked and baby was very healthy! She is the cutest little thing! We have had her in our home less than a week and we already wonder what life would have been without her. She is a great baby. She slept 5 1/2 hours last night between feedings!!! Momma was very happy! The first few nights she woke up for a few hours during the night. I pray those nights will be few and far between. Her brothers were all great sleepers so I am a spoiled mom!

Here are some pictures that were taken at the hospital. We do have pics with her brothers, but they are still on the camera...which I do not have at the momoent. As you can tell, we are very blessed to have this new little girl in our home. I told Larry that all the nausea, headaches, aches, pains, and being in the darkest hole of my life....IS ALL WORTH IT!!! Enjoy the pics! You can also view pictures on Larry's facebook...he does better about updating!!!

Marty,
I had looked and looked at your blog for the first few days after she was born to see a picture of your precious bundle, but then I forgot the last few days, and thought of it tonight. I'm sooo glad that she is here safely! She's ADORABLE!! I know that she is LOVED beyond words! Congrats to you and Larry and her 3 older brothers. You may know this, but Michael and Beth also got their first baby girl on my birthday, Nov. 6th. =)
Hugs to you and your sweet baby and family.

Forgot to add that I love her name too. I had the name "Grace" in mind if we would've had a girl too. Great minds think alike. ;)
Love ya!
