Welcome to the world Sophia Elizabeth

Welcome to the world Sophia Elizabeth -- 21 inches long and 6 lbs 7 oz at birth (trying to do this from memory) .

Her Mom and Mimi sent this picture with the blanket knitted for her. Does she look peaceful and happy, not to mention BEAUTIFUL????

Please leave a note to welcome her to our world - by a simple welcome or a prayer!

O God, you have taught us through your blessed Son that whoever receives a little child in the name of Christ receives Christ himself: We give you thanks for the blessing you have bestowed upon this family in giving them a child. Confirm their joy by a lively sense of your presence with them, and give them calm strength and patient wisdom as they seek to bring this child to love all that is true and noble, just and pure, lovable and gracious, excellent and admirable, following the example of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
Amen.

From the service of A Thanksgiving for the Birth or Adoption of a Child, 1979 Book of Common Prayer
