Anyways, back to the baby of the hour, Grace Josephine, aka Gracey Jo, who might just be the most anticipated baby of the year for our family. I remember being in Branson with all the Earl girls when we got the news that Casey Jo and Ben were expecting. I might have shed a tear or two and I know a few others in the room were right there with me. We were all so excited because we know just how long this little one had been prayed for. Finally, the day Ben and Casey, and the rest of their family and friends were waiting for, May 22nd. Gracey Jo arrived at 9:30 in the morning and weighed in at 9 pounds and was 22 inches long and man is she going to be a heartbreaker.
Welcome to the world Gracey Jo. I can't wait to get my hands on you and introduce you to your cousins. And to the new mommy and daddy, congratulations, welcome to the best thing about life!
