Meet Baby #3!

At midnight the night after my due date, I started having contrations.  I got a shower, grabbed our stuff, called my mom to come watch the kids, and headed to the hospital with Cole.  We got there in plenty of time and were able to visit with Cole's high school friend who is an OB at Greenville Memorial.  Everything went very smoothly with the labor and delivery and before we knew it, there she was!  

 This little beauty weighed in at 8lbs 15oz.  The doctor that I was hoping would deliver was on duty until noon that day, and Ellison Cole Varner cooperated beautifully and came into the world at 11:57am.  She was bright red, lots of blonde hair, and very healthy.  We fell immediately in love, of course, and are still overwhelmed by God's goodness.  Three little girls!  Life is good!
My mom and my sister were both able to be there for the birth, thanks to lots of helpful friends who passed around Savannah, Hailey, Lyla, Pressley, and Kru.  And Cole's parents arrived at the hospital just hours later.  What a miracle birth is.  It just never gets old!  Just looking at these photos takes my breath away.  I better end this post before I start to get all weepy on you :)
