Rachel Elisabeth Kincher

Well our baby is finally here, a BEAUTIFUL little GIRL. She was born on May 21st at 9:54pm weighing in at 8lbs 6oz and 21 inches long! Rachel and I are doing GREAT! Daddy was such a BIG help with everything that we needed. Mark and I couldn't be happier, Rachel has been such an easy baby. We couldn't be happier, she is such a blessing. Mommy and Daddy are obviously tired, but those are the joys of becoming a new parent!! Calm and quiet, she is obviously just like her Daddy...well except her little eyes!

These are some of here very first pictures with Mommy and Daddy. It's so crazy to think that we are parents, yet SOOOOO exciting!

It has been so nice to have my Mom and Rob here for the first few days of her life. They have been such a great blessing. They really like to hold her and watch her as we try and get some sleep during the day, and then they help take care of the house and the meals, so that has been WONDERFUL!! It was nice to have them here a couple of days before her birth so that we were all able to hang out and share our last few days together before becoming Parents and Grandparents. Unfortunately, they leave tomorrow and we will have to figure this whole thing out on our own. But, we are pretty confident, it's not as though we REALLY know what we're getting ourselves into!

On a final note...we too like so many people thought that we would have a little boy, but we couldn't be happier, Rachel has been WONDERFUL! As for the 2 people that guessed that she'd be a girl...congratulations!! To the 17 of you who thought we were having a boy, don't worry we still like you (two of those votes were ours)!!! :)
