Surprise It's a GIRL!

Yes, that is right, the baby "boy" we have been waiting for for nine months now is not a boy at all! You can imagine our surprise as a beautiful baby girl was born. I guess the ultrasound technician made a mistake and our own eyes deceived us. However, God knew all along and He makes no mistakes. We are so pleased to have a happy healthy baby girl. So without further ado let me introduce you to SARAH ELISABETH BURKHOLDER. She was 8 pounds and 11 ounces and perfectly healthy. Natalie is doing fine and healing well. Enjoy the following pictures.
Sarah's first picture after she was born. This is her reaction when I told her she was a girl. Just kidding. She got much happier after seeing mommy.

She has "sleeping like a baby" down pat even with Daddy flashing the camera in her face!

Natalie is the only one who can really make her happy and "smile".

We are blessed to have "grammy" (Steve's mom) here for the birth. She has been a big help with watching the other children and loves to hold her newest grandchild.

Hananh was thrilled to have a sister, what she wanted and prayed for all along.Even Caleb is happy to have sister and be the ONLY boy in the family.
A very proud daddy!
