Blueberry unveiled

At 11:33pm on January 12, 2011, we met our beautiful promise.
Our princess.

7lbs, 9oz, 20 inches
100% perfection
Ayla - (Hebrew) Oak tree, tree
Jewel- (English) a person or thing that is treasured, esteemed, or indispensable.

These verses represent our prayer for her life and why we picked these names.

Isaiah 61:3 That they may be called oaks of righteousness,
   the planting of the LORD, that he may be glorified.

Psalm 1:2-3 But (her) delight is in the law of Jehovah; And on his law doth (s)he meditate day and night.
 And (s)he shall be like a tree planted by the streams of water, That bringeth forth its fruit in its season, Whose leaf also doth not wither; And whatsoever (s)he doeth shall prosper.

Proverbs 20:13 There is gold and abundance of costly stones,
   but the lips of knowledge are a precious jewel.

We are so blessed!

  16. I remember reading this as Mark was working on Behr's birth story. I can't believe I never commented!

    I was so impressed you had pictures of Ayla that resembled you both so well. And now, she still carries so much of both of you in her features and personality, it is no wonder she resembled you both so much from the very beginning!
