Pearl's New Baby

Sunday, April 5, 2009

Finally! Pearl had her baby thismorning! Hooray!!

This is Daisy, just a few hours old.

I am so tired right now - I've been up since 5:40 thismorning, coming outside and checking on Pearl. She started having some pretty good contractions around 8 or 9 o'clock thismorning, and finally gave birth at 11:30 to a beautiful baby girl! We were surprised that there was only one kid, as Pearl looked large enough for about three. :) But we are so grateful that (1) the whole thing went very smoothly and totally normal, and (2) that it is a girl!

Getting cleaned up. Pearl did such a magnificent job throughout the entire birth, and hardly let out more than a grunt except for the last push or two! Good job, Pearl!!

Having a snack.............for a while Daisy wouldn't nurse, but just an hour or two ago, she finally learned. We were quite relieved!


Daisy is such an active little goat and, although still very wobbly on her legs, is learning how to get around.

As cute as this all looks, behind the scenes were three very nervous girls - only Courtney, Mom, and I were present for the birth, as Dad and the boys went to a neighbor's house to help out with some work. It was a nerv-racking experience! But it was also amazing, and a true testimony to how marvelous God's creation is.

"Bedtime, dear.....come along!"

Yes - we named her Daisy. We think she is just too cute! She is so wobbly on her legs still, but is such a doll. She is soooo soft! Watching the birth was truly incredible.
