Hey everyone! I'm finally ready to share Jemima's birth story photos!
Daniel called me on Wednesday at 8 to tell me that things were picking up. I immediately left for their home in Jackson. The whole drive was an inward dilemma between wanting to arrive as soon as possible and also knowing that if I get pulled over for speeding I would actually waste more time with the police than I would by just driving slower.
I got to the house around 8:30 and heard crying...
So I guess I should tell you: these are not actually BIRTH story photos. These are "immediately following the birth" story photos. Yep, I missed the birth by about three minutes. Apparently I should have taken the risk with speeding. This will forevermore be my excuse for breaking the law.
Emily delivered this baby like a boss. I can't tell you this first hand since I wasn't actually there, but apparently the entire process took about fifteen minutes. Go Emily.
This is Jemima Jean!
"The Lord blessed the latter part of Job’s life more than the former part. He had seven sons and three daughters. The first daughter he named Jemima... nowhere in all the land were there found women as beautiful as the daughters of Job"
Emily's parents missed the birth by about ten minutes, but here they are meeting granddaughter number 3.
Big sister Providence was in bed, so I wasn't there when she met Jemima. Here's big sister Ruthie meeting Jemima!
Baby got cleaned up while Momma got cleaned up. Jemima wasn't happy about being away from Mom.
Little bitty baby feet.
Big sister Ruthie decided to make a birthday card for Jemima!
This photo is completely unstaged. I'm pretty sure this is the "so... we have THREE DAUGHTERS" face.
Little bitty baby hands.
