Praise be to God!

We are so very blessed to welcome Evangeline Isabella Miles into the world... 8 lbs, 4 oz, and 19.5 inches long!


Moments after the big moment :)


Daddy loves her so much!


We are so thankful and so happy to be holding this blessing in our arms. So many prayers have been answered! More updates to come, for now Mommy must take a nap, after being awake for 36 hours straight :) Those wonderful endorphins that come with a natural labor really provide so much energy!

Congratulations! She's beautiful!

When I saw the title I yelled out, "She had her baby!" to the people in the room and got a handful of blank stares in return. :-)

I'm so happy for you all!

Congratulations! What a beautiful little girl :) Love, love, love her name- one of my favourites! If you can find it, a Canadian folk singer named Stan Rogers has a beautiful song called Evangeline..

Have a good long nap, you deserve it!
