Baby News!!

Our baby girl decided to make her entrance one day before her 42 week scheduled induction. Nothing like waiting until the last minute. Jillian Parris Benefield was born on Tuesday, January 12, 2010 at 8:38 p.m. She weighed 8 lbs., 12 oz. and measured 20.5 inches long. We were thrilled that labor started on its own and that it was much shorter than with Kate. We'll be going home from the hospital tomorrow and look forward to introducing baby Jill to friends and family. Until then, enjoy some of her first pics.

(P.S. Parris was Josh's grandmother's maiden name.)

Still waiting . . .

41 weeks and counting. Baby girl has less than a week to make her arrival on her own. My doctor has scheduled an induction for next Wednesday. Looks like it might be a repeat of Kate's birth. We are thankful that baby sister is healthy and that the doctor is letting me wait until 42 weeks. But, if you can say a prayer on our behalf that labor begins on its own before Wednesday, we'd appreciate it!
