JUNE 19th- 5:00 am- Bridgette goes to the hospital to have her labor induced. By this point she was a week over due and starting to feel very rundown. However, before they could induce her she started have good strong contractions on her own. She had been having some for several weeks but finally they were coming good. She did very well with the pain. I grabbed one shot of her trying to breathe thru the pain.

Finally, around 7:30 pm Kasadie Michelle Mcjunkins came into the world at 7lbs 2oz and 19 3/4 inches long. Bridgette did such a good job during labor and delivery with no problems. Here I am holding her.
Here is grandpa holding her. His eyes teared up every time he held her.

Looking at grandpa.
Great grandma got her turn. (Bridgette's grandma)

The other great grandma. (Jeremy's grandma)
Great grandpa (Jeremy's grandpa)
Grandpa gets her again with still more tears in his eyes.

Isn't she the sweetest thing?
She look a lot like her daddy but has her moms mouth.
My son Wes holding her.

Wes' girlfriend Samantha holding her
This seemed to be her favorite spot. On her daddy's chest.
Did he not get the best fathers day gift ever?
Me and Kasadie once again.

Of course my sister and I and our mom shed many tears because she could not be here to see her. They left town two weeks ago for another tent meeting. Her great grandma and grandpa will be back soon enough to see her. In the meantime- I am thankful for digital cameras and this great internet :) Enjoy the pics mom and dad :)

Congratulations! A girl! *sigh*

What's a tent meeting? I was thinking that they're either outdoor camping salesmen or Bedouins from Arabia, but I know that can't be right.

Congratulations!! How exciting!
I am so happy for you all.
Loved seeing all the pictures.

You have a great summer.
It was great to come over here and catch up on your blog.
I haven't done much with my blog in months.
I really need to post some pictures.

Take Care.

She's so perfect and wonderful! Congratulations to all! What a wonderful blessing!

Thank you for your encouragement this week. I know myself so well and I knew I'd get hit with it sooner or later. I am only afraid that I'm not finished with it yet. Augh! Anyway, I'm sorry that you're going through stuff too. Wouldn't it be great if we could just be at peace and joyful all the time? I think the more you love your kids and the closer you are to them the harder it is. I will pray for you Sondra and four your four boys.

Hugs, Sharon
