It’s A Boy!!!

Just a quick post to let you all know we had a handsome baby boy yesterday evening at 7:48pm after just over an hour intense labor.  Joshua weighed 9lb 13oz and 22″ inches.  We are both doing well!  This was our first home birth and also a water birth at that.  The Lord is so good, we are all thrilled and rejoicing in this new life the Lord has blessed us with.  :)

 

I will post more details and pictures in a day or two or three.  ;)   Right now I’m enjoying baby snuggles.  :D

Here is our new baby son!

    As you can tell, I am tuning in very late. Congratulations!! He is beautiful!!! (If we ever had another boy, he was going to be a Joshua, so I love his name too). Don’t worry about posting. There will be lots of time for that! That tiny newness doesn’t last very long. Enjoy!!

    Blessings and hugs!!

    How Wonderful! Praising the Lord with you! Can’t wait to hear about the home birth… If God gives us any more children that is what we are looking into.

    I will post more early in the week, but I’ll just say now, if we are blessed again, it will be for sure another home birth. It was wonderful!!! I’ll post the birth story as soon as I have it written out.

I love hearing from you!!
