5 months of morning sickness

Killer heart burn

Pre-term labor

Pinched nerve

3 months of contractions

2 weeks of bed rest

2 months of “decreased activity”

Swollen toes, feet, ankles, calves . . .

2 days late

No meds 

11 hours of labor


Totally worth it.

Catherine Elizabeth Marie and I are doing well.  She is a champion eater and has been catching up on her beauty sleep – but believe you me, she doesn’t need it.  She’s gorgeous.  She was awake all through labor, making work hard for us, but now she’s a mellow little lamb.  Jac and I are tired but elated.  I’m still in a little bit of shock that she is a SHE!  They are taking exceptional care of us at the hospital – we’ve been blessed with kind and generous nurses.  Thank you for all of your prayers and well wishes and we will do our best to keep this spot updated in the coming days and weeks as we adjust to life with our new little girl.  God is good – all the time.
