8 lbs and 4 oz
20 1/2 inches long
We thank all of you for your prayers and for those who participated on selecting the names for our 4th baby girl. We chose the name Christiana Mary! We know this name was not part of the selection, but the name just fit her!
The delivery was really fast and Coby did very well. She started the contraction around 4 am and by 6 am it got really strong (this is what she told me, because she didn't even wake me up at 4 am) When I was getting ready to go to work, she said, "you are not going anywhere!"

The time line goes something like this:

4:00 am - Contraction started (although, she has been having contraction for the past 3 weeks)

6:00 am - Contraction got really strong (10 to 12 minutes apart)

7:30 am - Coby had breakfast

9:30 am - Doctors Office

10:00 am - Doctor checked her and she was 9+ cm dilated

10:20 am - Nurse wheeled her to the labor and delivery

11:12 am - Christiana was born

By 2:30 pm, I picked up the girls and brought them to the hospital to see their new sister and Mommy. They are so happy, joyfull and couldn't take their hands and eyes off their new baby sister!

Coby, you are an amazing woman. Your girls are so lucky to have you. Christiana is absolutly beautiful. I love all of the pictures, but I really love the one of Michael and the 4 girls. Please know we are praying for you, your recovery, and the girls transition from being a sisterhood of three to four. I cannot wait to meet the newest arrival. Coby, let me know when you are ready for a quick visit. Sending lots of hugs and kisses your way.
