Aria Joy House was born at 8:45am on February 10th and weighed 8 lbs. 2 oz. and was 20.25 in. long. Mommy (Emily) shares:
"Aria Joy got here so quickly that she was out before the midwives arrived! God was so faithful though and His hand was over the whole process – we had a nurse friend and my Mom there with us at home helping with the birth and Daddy (Aaron) got to catch Aria himself as she entered the world! Our midwives arrived a few minutes after Aria did and were an immense help with everything after the birth. And even though she came so fast, we are all doing well and thanking God for our little "Song of Joy"!! God has truly put a "song of joy" in our hearts and it is our hope and prayer that our little girl's life will be a "Song of Joy" to the heart of God. Praise His holy name!!!"
