Our newborn, heavenly, baby girl has arrived!!!!!! She is 1 week old today and we are over the moon with how perfect and beautiful she is! Having babies and growing a family with my husband is just beyond describable how wonderful it is.
This past week has been hilariously hard though, she breastfeeds every hour during the evening and all through the night – literally! And our other two have decided we should now have a 3 ring circus of screams and running through the house and general excitement over her arrival.
So this post will be short and sweet 😀 otherwise it’d probably be unreadable due to typos!
I did want to say though, since I wrote about it before how we were worried how my uterus was handling pregnancy and if we’d be able to have more children after this baby. The Dr. said it was still strong – no windows or tearing – praise God!!!! We were leaving it in God’s hands and preparing to accept (really grieve) that maybe it was His decision to “close the womb,” but we were so happy when the doctor told us this in the operating room!
And of course… I cried tears of joy when seeing her – I always seem to cry with my husband (he’s the one holding her since it’s a c-section) right when one of babies come out. It’s just such a miracle!
She came just before Father’s Day, too, which I thought was so sweet and perfect. ❤
All throughout the surgery, too, I kept remembering the verses,
“You will keep in perfect peace the mind that is dependent on You, for it is trusting in You.” Isaiah 26:3
“Will I bring a baby to the point of birth and not deliver it?” says the LORD;
“or will I who deliver, close the womb?” says your God.” Isaiah 66:9
And again, just like with our last baby, growing our family just creates so much more love in our marriage, which didn’t seem possible – but I love my husband even more! Even through the fog of exhaustion and sleeplessness, the love and affection is so strong and increasing.
And just a random video on my husband’s last days of work before the baby came – him singing to our son before he left. He is such an exceptional father…
