Wren arrives!

Christin and I are so excited that our baby daughter Wren is finally here!  Wren Constance Pounds was born Tuesday morning, May 10, 6:38 a.m., weighing in at 7 lb 14 oz.  Below are a few pics with Wren at the hospital and one with Jude swinging his new baby sister.  You can find more pics on my facebook page.

Christin was amazing through the whole pregnancy and especially the delivery.  She went 100% natural- no drugs and no pain killers.  I’m impressed with my wife for many reasons, and this only cemented her status as one of my heroes.

A few people have asked about the name.  Well we chose Wren because it’s one syllable, it’s unique, and we like the sound of it.  We chose Constance in honor of Christin’s paternal grandmother who we fondly call “Nanny.”  She is such a Godly lady and much of Christin’s spiritual heritage is a result of her Nanny and Paw Paw’s commitment to Jesus.

So I’m taking a few days off to hang with the family.  We’re so blessed to have Christin’s mom, Cheryl, in town.  Having her is like bringing in the heavy artillery.  It’s freeing us up to enjoy being parents together for a few days before the rush of life and ministry comes again.  As always, thank you for your continued prayers as we parent our children and as Jude adjusts to a new baby taking over some of his space.
