Lily Ann Haanen Arrives!!!

At 8:19pm Lily Ann Haanen was welcomed to the world by an overjoyed mother and father. Labor lasted about 6 hours in all, and Kelly was able to push Lily out with only one push. This may make it seem easier than it was...I was praying for her like crazy when she was in the last hour. But once Dr. Oster finally arrived, she said, "One more push and you're going to have this baby." Kelly later reported, "I didn't believe her. That was my first push!" Yet with one push, she did it, and Lily Ann came gracefully into this beautiful world.


Well, gracefully until the nurses tried to clean her off anyway...


She was 8 lbs 10.5 oz and 21 inches long. A pretty good sized kid for Colorado!

"I FEEL GOOD! Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah! And I knew that I would now!"

"Let everything that has breath praise the Lord!" Psalm 150:6
