We are in awe of our new baby boy! It doesn't matter how many children you have, each new baby is a miracle and it's all new again! The Lord was so good to us and the baby was born in the Lord's perfect timing.
Elias James was born March 23rd at 8:29pm after 17 hours of labor. Actually 16, I had a one hour break! It was such a different labor and birth. My last two children were born in 7 hours. I have to admit that I expected that again. However, everything about this baby and birth was very different. My labor was very good and I loved the communion with the Lord with each contraction. I listened to hymns as I was in the bathtub. Only the last hour and a half were unbearable and that was due to a cervical lip. I always get a cervical lip and it is a terrible thing. It prevents the baby's head from coming down and it just causes a tremendous amount of pain. Once I finally made it past that then Elias was born in 5 minutes.
The Lord has greatly blessed us!
