Uncle Brian & Aunt Janet Visit

Brian & Janet made it in from California to see their newest nephew- Ian Jordan...and of course their little Jada! Janet spent a couple of days helping Rachel recover and trying to get a schedule going for Ian. All of our family has been soooo helpful, and we feel extra blessed as we consider all that God has given us!

Ian Jordan Hillman

Ian was born at 1:21 pm today. He weighed 7 lbs 6 ozs and is 19.75 inches long. We arrived at the hospital around 5:30 this morning and by 6 am were in the process of induction. About 10:15 Rachel got the epidural and it wasn't long til she was feeling good! She has had a little nausea but that is expected for her. Hopefully tomorrow will be a much better day!
Thank you so much to those who prayed for us during our whole process which started many years ago! We can all see that they were answered in His time! I don't even want to think about not having Jada in our lives. She is truly a blessing and it will be quite an adventure growing up with "brother" around!

Almost an Ian

This morning was suppose to be the day we would meet Ian. We were scheduled for induction @ 7am. One last picture of Rachel and we were out of the hotel and on our way!

When we got to the hospital we noticed all the babies in the nursery (we later learned 22) and thought nothing of it except for the fact that the nursery was full! After trying to check-in, we were told someone would be out to talk to us. After a while, we were told it would be around noon before the hospital would have some room. After noon, we were told to come back Saturday morning @ 6am!

So before leaving LR, we met up with Nancy and Deborah to eat lunch, since Rachel was starving after only being able to eat jello all morning!

Just a few more days for Jada to be an only child!
