Grandchild #12!!!!!!

We are so excited to welcome Laura Christine Knox into our family!

Laura was born on May 3rd, at 2:03 a.m. She weighed 6 lbs. 13 oz. and was 19.75 inches long. She is the smallest grandchild so far weighing almost a pound less than any of the others. She is also the first grandchild to have been born before her due date. She was six days early.

We are so thankful that Julie experienced an easy delivery with no complications.

I (HollyBeth) am currently working toward a nursing degree and am very interested in midwifery, so Brian and Julie invited me to attend Laura's birth. I am so thankful that the Lord worked out the timing so that I could be there. It was an awesome experience!

She's so little that her hat kept falling over her eyes.

Derrick adores his baby sister. Caleb John isn't quite sure what's going on yet.

The nurse let Derrick help give Laura her first bath. He got to wash her toes.

Savannah is very excited to have another girl cousin. The ratio is now 8 boys to 4 girls.

Quite in love.

Laura loves to stick out her tongue.

Headed home from the hospital.
