It is often said that “time flies,” but it usually doesn’t seem to apply to me when I’m in the last month of my pregnancies. The month of March seemed to last forever as Stephen and I speculated whether or not our third child would arrive before or after the month’s end. As each week went by, it became more and more certain that our child did not want to be born in March.
For those of you who received our birth announcement on Sunday, April 3, you will know that our baby did arrive this past Saturday on April 2. Now that we are home from the hospital, we’d like to share the experience (and some pictures) with you.

Thanks for taking the time to stay in touch with us. We especially appreciate all the e-mails that were sent after the birth of our daughter. They were very encouraging and I look forward to responding personally to each one of them soon. Feel free to e-mail us, write a note on Facebook, leave a comment on this blog, give us a call on our Vonage phone or call us up on Skype. We’d love to hear from you.
Blessings in Christ,
Cristina, Stephen, Jared, Luke and….debuing our little GEM (Grace Erin Meier)
