What's the big deal about Young Living

Emelyn Hope

Here is one of the first photos of our sweet baby.

Our seven from heaven. Everyone was thrilled to meet her.

She's not quite as happy in this picture, even though she's the center of attention!

Later, I'll post the story of the longest day and night of my life! Thank you for all of your prayers and sweet wishes.

    Congrats to your entire family. What a beautiful new bundle you have!! I hope she is a wonderfully easy baby for you.

    I was thinking that I feel a little sorry for your son, knowing he’s going to grow up around all that estrogen, but I have a feeling that at least one of your girls make the perfect playmate for him!!! And he should make a lucky woman a great husband someday because he’ll have (so far?!) six sisters to teach him everything!

    Many, many prayers are coming your way for this newest member!

    Congratulations, Connie and family!! Emelyn is just beautiful! What a precious gift.

    Please try to rest as much as possible. I know how difficult that can be with so many other children, but it really is important!! Ok… done with my lecture…

    Congratulation, again!!

  6. Oh Connie! She is absolutely beautiful! Congratulations to you and your family!
    And might I say I’m always up for a good birth story! woo-hoo!

    Blessings to you all! (Could I really use any more exclamations points??!! Apparently I can!)

  7. Beautiful family! I’m oldest of 9, so truly feel blessed to see other women (besides my mom) having as many kids as God will bless them.

  8. She is absolutely beautiful! What a darling family. That’s a great picture of all the kids together.
