Beth Mari was born early this morning (midnight to be exact)
to our dear friends Jocy and James.
Beth Mari measured 50 cm long (19.7 inches) and weighed in at 2.95 kilos (6.5 pounds).
It is quite the humbling honor to have friends name their child after me. Her first name is in my honor; her second name is in honor of Jocy's dear friend MariLyn (who also happens to be Jocy's OB doctor and both our GYN doctora!)
Both Mom and Baby are doing fine though Beth does have a slight infection of some kind and is on an antibiotic for that. She may be in the hospital a few days due to that.
Please keep them in your prayers.
Psalm 127:3Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD,
the fruit of the womb a reward.
4Like arrows in the hand of a warrior
are the children of one's youth.
hmmm....Now I'll have much fun buying baby clothes for her!!!!!
