SHE'S HERE....FINALLY!!!

I am SOOOOOOOO excited to announce the arrival our 3rd child, Elizabeth "Lissie" Tuley. She was born at 5:09am on Sunday, April 5th. She weighed in at 7 lbs. 15 oz. and is 19 in. long.

As many of you know I wanted to have a natural labor, and God truly blessed me with a great husband, helpful doula, wonderful midwife, and lots of respectful hospital staff. One of my labor and delivery nurses was even in my BSF small group when I had it on Monday nights. However, the most tender moment happened before I began pushing, David had the presence of mind in the midst of some really intense moments to say a precious prayer, and after only 3 short but very intense hours from my first contraction to my 4th push she was here. God is AWESOME!!! He took care of EVERY detail and every worry.

Here are some pictures a really good friend who is much better with her camera than I am with mine took.....THANK YOU SHANNON! Lissie one at one day old.

Katie- I am so glad she FINALLY arrived. I know your whole family was anxious to met her and to find out if it was a little sister or brother to add to the Tuley family. Congratulations on your new little blessing and I wish you great feedings and 4 hours in between!
