Welcome Baby Millie

The long awaited day has arrived! On Sept 1st, Heavenly Father blessed us with a new baby girl. Millie Faye came into this world very healthy, weighing 8 pounds 3 ounces and was 19" long, our heaviest baby.

Dr. Juarez delivered her C-section, and all went extremely well. I got to do the honors of cutting the umbilical cord. The nurses were amazing and treated her so well. This is Cathy RN making sure I did everything right. She has 9 kids of her own. WOW!

Here she is on the scale, fresh out of the oven, and baked to perfection.
(sorry it's rotated)

After a quick Conference address on modesty, we got her dressed and bundled up. Once she fell asleep, we unwrapped her to get a pretty picture of this amazing little girl. Is she cute or what?!

It was fun to see how many people congratulated us on having a baby, and offered advice or help, thinking it was our first. When they found out that Millie is our 5th, they quickly agreed we didn't need much help. This is a great picture of us and probably the only one you'll ever see of Rachel in her hospital bed.

We want to thank everyone who helped us out in all aspects, especially my parents and Rachel's parents who stayed with the kids overnight and all day long so I could be with Rachel and Millie in the hospital the entire time. We love you guys. We have strong testimonies of the importance of the Gospel and are grateful that families can be together forever.

Here are some random pictures taken at the hospital.

THANKS FOR POSTING!!!! I have been dying over here in Virginy! She is so cute. Yes, I don't think you guys need any advice! You are such great parents and have such awesome kids. We love you and are so jealous of the other cousins that already got to meet Millie. I love the last picture of Millie. So cute. Miles grabbed his hat in the hospital too. Rae-I hope she eats better than Troy. I have been praying for that for you, I know it can be so hard. Love you all. I can't wait to show Eli these pictures.

Hey Congratulations on your precious baby girl! I am sad I missed the party ( I didn't work until Thursday night and you guys left that afternoon). I'm happy Cathy took good care of you all. So happy for your sweet family.
