Happy Birthday Gwyneth Dawn!

After being induced at 5pm on June 2nd, Gwyn made her appearance rather suddenly at 12:13 pm on June 3rd surprising not only the entire staff of the hospital but her mother and father too! I guess she is just like her mom in that respect since that is how I entered the world!

Some of you have asked about the name, we chose the name Gwyneth because it is another from of Guinevere which is where the name Jennifer comes from. Dawn is a family name from my side, the first born daughter has the middle name Dawn making her the 4th generation to carry on the tradition.

She was 8 lbs 9 oz and 21 inches long! Big girl! Here are some pictures of her right after delivery.

We couldn't be happier!

You and Eli have such a beautiful new baby, she is just darling.. I am glad you were safe with the delivery and that your baby girl was good as well, I had scary delivery's with only 2 and 3 pound babies, so glad that after all you had such a healthy baby, she is just darling. Please let Eli know that his cousin (my brother) Trent is in the hospital and we would appreciate prayers from anywhere we can get them.
Your both beautiful parents and Gwyn is lucky. What a darling name.. Congrats to your sweet little family.. P.S. Girls are SO fun.. They will break the bank.
