We are home! We went into the hospital Thursday night, and Nikki was induced on Friday morning. Ashtyn Faith was born that night at 8:13 pm. It was a long day, but mom and baby are both doing great. Ashtyn weighed 6lbs 13oz and was 20 inches long. She gets more beautiful everyday. For more pics check out our shutterfly link:

Well, just a quick update here. Nikki had a doctor's appointment today. Her due date is the 25th of this month, but, Ashtyn is so excited that she might just come in a little over a week! Wow, our lives about to change!
I (Matt) spent the weekend in Oklahoma with family and the Muskogee Church of Christ. I went to talk with them about what all is going on in our lives and about our calling to missions in Greece. I had an incredible time and was very encouraged by the church. It was great to see and talk with so many who were instrumental in my growing up. I also got to know some of the leadership a bit better and was very impressed with what God is doing among that church.
Nikki and I are having dinner on Saturday with a guy and his wife who are on the Hellenic Ministries board. We are excited to meet them and visit with them.
Nikki's mom is arriving a week from Friday. She'll stay with us for awhile to help with the baby. How awesome is that?!
Pictures are coming, I just wanted to make sure I got an update on here for now. Consistently updating this blog is definitly a New Year's resolution. The good thing is I don't have to give up ice cream to do it!
