I've started a series of letters to my little baby boy, that hopefully one day he will get to read and (hopefully) be inspired by (if not embarrassed by)
I've been thinking lately how I needed to document the day you were born to share with you someday. You see, there were lots of things going on that day that really threw your 'rents for a loop. Mommy thought you were coming around Wednesday because she felt lots of aches and pains BUT you had other ideas! Instead, you arrived into this world on April 27th 2012 @ 8:43pm...that was Friday night, by the way :)
Nana, Grandma, Grandpa, Auntie Sarah, Uncle Steve, Cousin Brooky & Levi were in the waiting room, wanting to know what was the next step. We all knew that we needed to pray for you and Mommy. The doctor wanted to do a C-section but that was not what Daddy & Mommy wanted! You were so close, the nurse said! Surgery would be sad to do...
Pastor showed up and laid his hand on Mommy's head. Grandpa came in and prayed with Daddy, as he held my hand. Everyone else in the waiting room stood and held hands in prayer. We came together, in Jesus' Name! We knew that He was watching and that He could take care of everything! Guess what? Yup, He did just that! Right after our prayers went up, the nurses changed shifts and we were blessed with a new nurse.
She was amazing! Daddy and Mommy call her our angel! She talked to the doctor and came into the room, preparing your little warm bed for when I delivered you. She got all the equipment ready, and flashed us a big comforting smile :)
She did so much work to make sure that you were delivered the natural way, and not by surgery.
God is so good, David! Remember my other letter about how prayer works? This is another example!
45 minutes after the nurse told me to push, you blessed us with your beautiful presence, which of course made Daddy & Mommy SO happy that we cried with joy...
You were born 6lbs 4oz and 19.75in! Everyone could not wait to hold you and give you kisses. You had lots of people with lots of love in their hearts for you, my David boy. Praise the Lord! You truly were a miracle!
