Weekend Inspiration: 1 Samuel 1:27

“I prayed for this child, and the Lord has granted me what I asked of him.”
1 Samuel 1:27

Have you figured out the SURPRISE, yet?  The one I hinted at yesterday?

Well, yesterday, we welcomed sweet, Baby L into our family of four!  We are all thrilled and excited to have him here, FINALLY!  W and E have showered him with kisses and hugs, and are so eager to get him home to let him play with their toys, and love on him some more.


I figured I’d keep this pregnancy hush hush this go round.  The pregnancy went smoothly, and for that I’m so thankful, but more importantly, our newest addition, is a beautiful, HEALTHY BABY BOY!  I was induced yesterday morning, and have had the exact date marked on the calendar for about a month or so now.  The girls were both induced, as well.  I deliver large babies, both girls were 9 pounds.  I think the doctor (I’ve had the same doc with all three pregnancies – so blessed!) worries that if I carry much longer after my due dates, that the baby will gain even more weight.  So, needless to say, I’m very thankful that I’ve never had to go into labor, and the epidural comes soon after I get to the hospital.

Smooth Pregnancies = One Happy Mama!

Photos to come soon!

Oh, and while we’re at the hospital today, we couldn’t have planned it any better…
