We’ve prayed and watched with anticipation as this baby grew! With our due date drawing near, I felt like a little child waiting for Christmas! We couldn’t wait to find out who this baby would be, what they would look like! On the day of our estimated due date, July 25th, we welcomed our sweet baby at 10:15 in the morning. Weighing a whopping 9 pounds and 2 ounces, measuring 19.5 inches long.
Introducing our newest addition, Miss Frances “Frannie” Michell Lawson.
(She is named after her late great-grandmother, Frances Rousseau Alspaugh. A pioneering woman of her time, full of love and spunk. Her name means “free one.”)
It’s a girl! We are over the moon excited and couldn’t have asked for a more perfect beauty to add to our family! How honoring for us that God would bless us with girls, and what a privilege and responsibility we have in raising up powerful world changing women!
She has been graciously accepted into the girl crew by her adoring sisters.
Thank you so much for your prayers over us during this pregnancy! We are so thankful for those answered prayers! Delivery was smooth and quick; we are both doing great! Please continue to pray as we are in this new season as a family of six!
p.s. We do have a few needs! Baby clothes would be so helpful, doesn’t have to be new, ranging in sizes from 3 months and larger. Also, we are in need of an infant car seat. Here in Thailand there are no car seat laws, children ride in laps or with no seat belt in most cases. For us, car seat safety is a priority. We can purchase a seat here, but our options are limited/expensive and there are not regulation and testing for those seats like in the US.
