Haha, isn't this something!? We still can't get over that fact that we have a girl!! :D God is soo good. She is doing great, and now weights 10 lb! We had the great joy of spending Mon. and Tues. at the Smithie home, cuddling babies, eating junk food, talking, watching movies, playing cards and putting pink bows on the mailbox for the first time, ;) and just enjoying sweet fellowship with all the dear folks up there. We bid farewell Tues. noon, leaving a gloating Auntie Dee and Uncle John for the week as helpers...some chore... ;) (JK, they were very sweet about getting to stay.)
Our little darling's name is Katherine (spelling still not determined) Esther Smith-isn't that lovely? Named after her dear Mama, and consequently after her great-great and great grandmothers. I love family names! So special. She's called Esther...our little grandbaby is so loved and missed by her family down here...we can't wait to see her and all the family again!
We love you, honey.

Well, until later, folks! Thanks for rejoicing with us in the birth of another blessed grandchild!
Oh-little detail I need to mention-Earlier I said she had 17 little boys between her and the last girl, but, actually there are just 16-in the excitement of the moment, and because I'm so good at my "add ups and take aways" ;) LOL, I miscalculated all the little boys between them! Sorry 'bout that. :D
Anyway, goodnight, y'all! Lord willing I'll be back tomorrow with lots of news and going-ons around here!! So much going happening-the Lord is so faithful. So many things to write down and record...
Love in Jesus,
