Cydney Marie Kolkhorst

Good morning everyone!

We have a baby!! Cydney Marie was born at 8:22 AM this morning and weighed 4 pounds 12
ounces - 10 ounces bigger than expected! God is so good!! We praise him for
the safe arrival of our new granddaughter.
Ann Marie is still in recovery but doing fine. Cydney was breathing on her
own but was transported upstairs to the NICU to be evaluated.

Today is Ann Marie's birthday; her birth weight was 4 pounds 12 ounces also.

Thanks so much for your prayers-God is awesome.

Blessings,
Kathy (Grandma)

This is WONDERFUL news!! Thank you for the update! Wow, what a coincidence that they had the same birth weight?!? Glad to hear Cydney is doing well!

Wow....I love the baby girl's name and its even more unique with the "C". I heard something similar the other day that two sisters had the same birthday but I've never heard that a mom and a daughter not only share birthdays but also birth weight...this is too sweet. It'll make their bond even more special to know they have this much in common. Please know that I will be praying for mommy and baby. CONGRATS Grandma! Congrats to the rest of the family especially the new mommy!

Hugs, Susan

I have tears of joy as I read the wonderful news of Cydney! I am so happy for your wonderful family, Kathy! (This is Debbie: Suzanne Roberts Mackay's mom from our Houston days)How amazing and sweet that little Cydney was born on her momma's birthdate and weighs in at the same weight. Our prayers have been with AnnMarie and Chris and like many others, are so grateful for His hand in their lives. May God continue to bless all of y'all as you celebrate so much today!
Love,
Debbie
