Emily Is Born









Sorry for the delay but a down internet at our house did not allow us to put up pictures 'til almost 24 hours after Emily Anne Gross was born! But she is finally here and our whole family is SOOOOO excited. Emily was born at 8:48 pm, she weighed 7 lbs. and 4 oz, and is 18 inches long. she is absolutely beautiful especially the "highlights" in her hair. her hair is a shade of brown but the tips of her hair are almost golden. everybody is just wooing over her hair. caleb and zachary are absolutely in love. zachary is singer her "rock-a-by-baby" and caleb has won the award for holding her the most hours of anybody. we are so proud of them, they will be great big brothers. thanks you all so much for your prayers and concern over the past 6 months as we have agonized waiting for Emily's arrival. but she is here and healthy and we feel so blessed to have her as a part of our family.
