He's Here

I thought I would be the kind of blogger who posted the birth announcement as soon as the baby was out (I thought a lot of things about childbirth and parenting a newborn that have proven to be unrealistic). I keep starting to write about my birth experience and getting stuck or needing to nurse or being otherwise distracted. So before his first birthday comes and goes without my reporting on his arrival, I'll tell you this:

He arrived on Tuesday, February 2 at 2:40 p.m. by c-section. Eight pounds, nine ounces, 21 inches of gorgeous baby boy.

I am getting precious little sleep, and the days blur into one another. I still need to figure out how to blog about him (do I use his name? Post photos?), and to tell you about his arrival, which was not exactly the birth experience of my dreams. But for now I will say this much: It was worth the wait.


I prayed for this child, and the Lord has granted me what I asked of him.

-1 Samuel 1:27
