I would like you all to meet...

Edit:: Video now at the bottom of this post.

Our little girl. 

Carmella Joie (pronounced Joy). Five pounds eleven ounces. She is absolutely the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. I can not wait to get my hands on this sweet little one. God is so good to give her to us!

I am absolutely thrilled. Walking on top of the world. Hanging with my gals watching Pride and Prejudice (the good one aka. 2005) and checking email every two seconds to see if the email is in yet. And it came. Here is our little girl. A new life to be lived. A new little soul to win for Jesus.

Excitement could not be greater here! Oh, my. Wow, I am so happy at the moment I don't believe I was ever could be sad again!

Carmella, I can't wait to hold you, Winnie girl! I love you sooo much! I need to hold you! How much longer till I see you???

And I love you people so much!

p.s. a video of Winnie coming very soon! Just waiting for it to be available on Vimeo...check back here for updates.

EDIT:: Video now uploaded for you! Enjoy!
