Congratulations Carrie, Eric and Nathan.
I was awake at 5:30Am today praying for all of you that all would go well. I even actually thought of the name Natalie. (but I put "Grace" with it!) I was so thankful when your mother called me at 8:45Am to tell us the good news...and pleasantly surprised that I had guessed part of her name!

Take care...get some rest and enjoy your special time to get acquainted with baby Natalie...I can't wait to see/hold her too.

I'm eager also to learn of Nathan's first reaction to his baby sister.

God's Blessings on all of you. I shall continue to pray for you, as always.

Lots of love,
Great Grandma Edna

Congratulations! Our Peter is turning one tomorrow and I am working on a post of this past year of his growth. It is taking a long time to upload the photos (We have zillions of them)but am happy to do so as I am going down memory lane once more with every single photo I post. I found your site through your sister's and have been enjoying reading both of your posts. Well, I better dash back to the photo uploading... Congratulations again for a beautiful daughter!
