Announcing the newest members of the Day Family!!!

I am thrilled to announce the births of our nieces, McKenna Joy and Jillian Grace, born this afternoon (12:37 PM for McKenna and 12:38 PM for Jillian), July 21st to proud parents Nick & Carissa Vann and big sister Eden. Mckenna weighed in at 5 lbs, 4 ozs and 17 inches long. Jillian weighed in at 5 lbs, 5 ozs and 19 inches long. Both mom and babies are doing great and it looks like there will be no time spent in the NICU. Praise the Lord!

I just talked to Carissa on the phone and she said that Mckenna looks more like Eden than Jillian seems to - she has the light peach fuzz hair that Eden had when she was born. She said it kind of looks like Jillian might have curly hair but it's a little too early to tell. We are so excited about these precious little lives that God has added to our family and can hardly wait to meet them! Seriously, I am going nuts not being there!! We will be making a trip very soon :)

Look how tiny and adorable their footprints are!! So precious :) We are praising the Lord for healthy babies and praying a quick recovery for mommy. Be expecting more pictures soon!

*Update: Jillian has some fluid in her lungs and is having to spend a little time in the NICU. Prayers for her are appreciated!
