39 weeks… May 5

and its a GIRL!!

for the bare basic details:

7 lbs 7 oz

20 1/2 inches long

lots of dark brown wavy hair


Hospital arrival: 5:30 am (with broken waters – contractions starting to be noticable)

Baby arrival: 9:33 am (with some nasty tearing – but yes, even with that I still think its better than a C-section!)

More details and pics later.

OH! almost forgot… NAME:

Shand-Renee Raichell Morris – … we’ll call her Shand, Keenan (7yr) will call her Rachel like he always has, spelled in his own unique way!

    YAY!!! Congratulations!!!! May God pour out many blessings of joy as you experience each new happy moment with this new little one!

    And I love that her brother had a part in not only the name, but the spelling – what a special story she’ll have in her future!

  • Rachelle

    Congratulations! I love her name and Keenan’s part in it. Can’t wait to see pictures. I hope you’re doing well, and yes, I agree…tearing with a VBAC is still better than a c-section!!

    ~Blessings, Rachelle

    A GIRL!!! Oh, I remember having a girl after two first boys–so hard to remember to say SHE instead of *he*. And Shand–BEAUTIFUL!!!
    Revel in these days… hallowed they are. They *all* are.
    Sending MUCH love,
