Our Little Hope

Hope Julianna Wachob arrived on Saturday morning at 6:32.  We are so thrilled to welcome this precious addition!  She came after a fast (picture Erik driving 50 through downtown Jackson with me in transition in the backseat! :)) two hour labor, and our hearts are overjoyed to receive her little life as a gift from God's hand.   She weighed in a 7lb. 14 oz.  We just arrived home a few hours ago, as the pediatrician required a 48 hour stay for sweet Hope (I did not get to the hospital in time to receive the dose of antibiotics I should I have had, so they insisted on monitoring her a bit longer).   She is precious, and we are so glad to be home as a (complete) family!

 Big Sisters - bedecked in proud sashes proclaiming their important roles.  Their first peek at baby sister was priceless.

  1. Congratulations, Colleen and family! She is beautiful! So fun to see you with FOUR daughters! Love you lots!

  2. Such beautiful pictures! I love how her sweet sisters faces reflect how much they love her already. Can't wait to see you in a week!!!!

  3. Congratulations! She is beautiful and looks like everyone is doing well. I guess it is a good thing that Ryan and Emily went with the second wedding date. ;-)

  4. Wow! She's gorgeous (of course)! Congrats to you sweet little family!
