Baby Mabel Has Arrived!

I promised to post a message here as soon as I heard anything, so here it is:

Larry left a message on my cell this morning - Mabel was born at 5:56 a.m., 7 lbs. 4 oz., 20 in., both baby and mommy doing well (daddy sounded okay, too).

Heavenly Father, receive our heartfelt thanks for this child, a gift of Your grace and love for us in Your beloved Son, Jesus Christ.  Send Your holy angels to shield her from all dangers of body and soul.  Preserve her according to Your good pleasure until that day when she is brought to the waters of Holy Baptism to receive the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit; through Jesus Christ, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the same Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.  Amen.  

CONGRATS Larry and Annie (and Ben)!

Update - Larry just sent me this first pic of Mabel:
