Introducing. . . .

Miss Lola Claire Fransisca Merritt

6 pounds, 13 ounces

19 1/2 inches long

Lola Claire because we love it

and Fransisca, after my amazing and wonderful Grandma Franzi

(Franziska--German name and spelling. We updated it a bit, and....

....there's only one Franzi, so we didn't copy the name exactly)

We are so thrilled she is here and are enjoying her immensely.

I'll post more pictures as I am able--thank you all so much for your prayers for our family throughout this entire pregnancy! God has heard and answered. Our little girl is here and safe, and we already love her so very much!

So cute! Can't wait for more pics. I see you didn't get home until this morning - did you have to have a C-section or did they just monitor you for awhile? Hope you are feeling okay.
