Welcome to the World Isaiah .

It was a long nine months. I am not going to lie. I am not the most gracious pregnant woman.

I moan
I whine
I am crabby

But when the end result is this

Its all worth it. Little Isaiah was born Friday , July 22nd. I had wonderful nurses. A funny doctor ( I appreciate that when I am awkward positions). And a epidural that worked beautifully. The whole thing was really fast. I didn't have time to call the people I wanted to right away. For that I am sorry. His heart rate was a little on the worrisome side so things went fast. All is well now.

Lexi came to the hospital late that night. My sweet friend Jen drove all the way to our house in the sticks to pick her up and bring her to the hospital. While my friend Megan and my mother in law stayed and held my hands through contractions. My own mom couldn't be there because she was with the girls. Ashlynn was sick so she couldn't come visit her new little brother. It was also the same night as Lexis camp rock performance.  More on that later. Thanks MooMoo for holding down the fort.

Lexi was such a big kid that night. She even got to go out to a late night breakfast at IHOP with Jen and Megan that night. And she was so interested in everything that was happening with Isaiah. The nurse was so sweet. She let lexi help with the first bath and the first outfit.  

She swears she is never having kids. But I am pretty sure its an act. And at 11 years old I am ok with her thinking that. 

He takes my breath away. I have done this four times now and each time is magic. Each time I am in awe of a God who knits us together so wonderfully in our mothers womb. A God who has all our days numbered and steps counted.  

Welcome to the world Isaiah . We love you and can not wait to see what God has in store for you.
