It's A Girl!

Dearly beloved friends and family,

We are overflowing with joy at the birth of our second granddaughter/niece.

Corrine Elizabeth DeLadurantey
was born Friday morning at 8:46. While all plans had been for a home birth, when the baby's heart beat dropped dangerously low during labor, they hurried over to a birthing center/hospital. When they arrived - the heart rate was normal. We are so very grateful to the Lord for this precious little one! She is beautiful, very alert, strong (she has quite a grip), and very sweetly small. She weighed in at 7# at birth. Mama is recovering well and both parents are VERY happy.

Now, for all of you who are wondering WHY it took us so long to get pictures up - the answer is that we were out of town until last night! So, here are now a bunch of pictures for you to enjoy!

Oh, and as "Corrine" could be pronounced various ways, this little one's name is pronounced: "kuh-RIN"
