Emory Estella Tharp

She's here!! She's finally here!
After a tense couple of weeks, Emory Estella was born into our family today at 1:35pm, weighing a surprising (in my opinion) 5lbs 13oz.
Miranda, her proud mama, was hypertensive and on bedrest for a while. Not an easy thing with an almost two-year-old running around! God is so good to give us another healthy and beautiful baby.
Welcome, sweet little girl! God's many abounding blessings on your curly brown little head. I pray that you will be a gracious and kind woman with your mother's gentle spirit. God is doing a good work in you already, baby, as well as in your future husband, for whom I also pray. I look forward to many, many years of telling you not to hit your brother and to chew with your mouth closed.
I love you dearly--you are a miracle baby.
Cousin Erin
p.s. If you learn to put your head on my shoulder and pat my back like your brother does, I will do ANYTHING for you. A.N.Y.T.H.I.N.G.
p.p.s. I can't wait to love you up!
p.p.p.s. I can't believe I missed your arrival by mere days!! It's killing me!

Congratulations! I clicked on the link leading to Easton's birth announcement, and he weighed 5 lbs 13 oz too! Weird coincidence!
