I received the text proclaiming her arrival at about 4:30pm our (mountain) time while I was on my way to teach Zumba. I actually had to pull over as I couldn't see through my tears. The picture Teresa sent me was so beautiful. The boys wondered why I was crying so I showed them the picture and told them that baby Rosie had been born. Aaron's first response was, "Yay! My cousin is born!"
This is the picture that I got.
In later days I enjoyed reading all of the facebook posts from both Jenny and Ian. I am so excited we get to see everyone in just a few short weeks.
In Jenny's words:
Rosie Jo was born on March 18th at 5:16 pm. The afternoon sun shone in the room beautifully while I pushed her out surrounded by smiling family and nurses. I couldn't stop smiling through the pain because I was so excited to see her. It was a happy birth. When they placed her on top of me she was quiet and just looked right into my eyes. It was the best day of my life. She is a long string bean at 21 inches and then some. She was 7 pounds and 10.6 ounces. She is perfect.
So proud of you Jenny! You and Ian are going to be amazing parents. Welcome to the club.
