"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates." Deuteronomy 4: 6-9

Hannah Grace is here!

Wow! What an incredible journey it has been for my sister Jamie and her husband Will to hold their long awaited little girl Hannah today! It brings tears to my eyes just thinking about how hard we all have prayed for this little baby! Hannah Grace Dozier was born today, August 18th, at 12:12 am delivered by a C-section. She weighed 7 lbs. and 14 oz. and was 20 1/2 inches long. She has lots of dark, wavy hair and deep blue eyes. She is just beautiful! Jamie's labor was not an easy one. She labored for about 18 hours with not much progression throughout those 18 hours. Jamie developed a fever at one point, and the baby's heart rate was high and then low at different times too. Her Doctor felt is was best for her and the baby to have a C-section around 11pm last night and Jamie was completely fine with that decision. We had a blast waiting for Hannah to arrive, from telling jokes, to playing cards, to laying on dirty chairs trying to get some shut eye, we did it all! She was worth the wait! Carson came up during dinner time and ate pizza with us all. He wasn't so sure about Aunt Jamie and Uncle Will being in an unfamiliar place, be he eventually warmed up and sang his "Row, Row, Row's" from "Row Row Row your Boat". He helped entertain us! We love you Hannah Grace and are so blessed to have you in our family!
