He's here!!

On March 13th at 12:12am, Micah David made his way into this world and into our eager arms. We were overjoyed to meet our son and thankful to the Lord for such a wonderful water birth. (more story and photos to follow) Here is a photo taken just a few hours after he was born...such a serious look!

Weight: 9.4 lbs.
Length: 19.3 in.
Head: 14.5 in.

Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord,
the fruit of the womb a reward.

~Psalm 127:3

Still here!

Lately, everywhere I go, it seems that everyone keeps saying, "Are you STILL here?" Meaning, "why haven't you had that baby already?" And I say with a smile that, yes, I am still here and hopefully today we'll have a bit of excitement (*polite laughter*). I have heard of women getting really tired of those kinds of comments and I always thought, "What's the big deal?" Well, now I know. It's SOOO hard to wait and reminders of how huge and late I am are NOT what is needed. I need distraction.
3 days overdue

Which is why I ironed my way through the entire ironing pile today. It was huge and took ages but was a great distraction. :) Next up...cleaning out the cupboards!
