Ingrid Ralene

Ingrid Ralene was born at 12:07 this morning after only 4 hours of active labor. I will tell more about the birth later, but I can say that I couldn't have asked for a better experience. The intense, difficult part lasted less than an hour, and during that time I knew that the end was very near at hand - which makes it so much easier! Ingrid is our smallest little girl to date, 6 lbs, 13 oz, 18 and 3/4 in long. I never imagined I'd have a baby smaller than 8 lbs, let alone 7 lbs, seeing as I weighed almost 10 lbs at birth!

She is just gorgeous. And her name is lovely. Three little girls! How very blessed you are.

I had 4 hours of labor with Judah -start to finish. It was pretty amazing and a gift from God. I had prayed and prayed over that part!

I look forward to reading Ingrid's birth story.

Congratulations to your whole family!
