Less than 24 hours ago, my beautiful baby boy was born in this hospital in Decatur, Texas (and this is where we still are, until we are discharged in a couple of hours): Below: Look at that sweet poochy lip, just minutes after he was born!
My four angels
Yes, he is very small, as you can see by the size of his head and hands compared to ours. He was even classified as a preemie at first, for fear that his lungs were not quite fully developed. However, he is doing very well on his own and will get to go home today!
We walked into the hospital about 7:35am yesterday. Less than 5 hours later, I was holding Micah in my arms! It is very typical for me to have my babies very quickly after the induction process is started... so much so that my epidural could hardly keep up! There were tears from Mommy - tears of pain, tears of emotion, but mostly tears of concern when the doctors were pretty sure that Micah had a cord wrapped around him. However, when he was born, the cord was not at all wrapped around him and he was a beautiful, healthy pink!
Oh, I am in love with this new little man in my life! Thank you, Jesus, for this perfect gift from God!
