Galations 2:20-21

I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me. I do not nullify the grace of God, for if righteousness comes through the Law, then Christ died needlessly." Galations 2:20-21

William Richard Gehrig

William Richard Gehrig. Born on October 22, 2011. Length-20.5 inches. Weight-8lbs, 5 ounces.

Our little one finally decided to join our family Saturday afternoon! I will give a quick update here and hopefully write a full birth story later on. Saturday morning my contractions started to increase in intensity and were getting closer together. Definitely felt like it was time to go to the hospital after we all had breakfast. Called my mom to pick up Gideon and we were on our way! At 3:40pm William was in our arms!

We were able to come home Sunday evening. Gideon seems to be adjusting as well as can be expected. He loves to kiss and hug the baby and let him hold his finger. It is quite precious. I just hope he doesn't decide he is sick of him in a week or so here!

Huge thanks to my wonderful husband who not only allowed me to beat him up a little during labor, but who has been a huge support at home as well. Doing laundry, dishes, warming up meals, extra help with Gideon, and the like. I could not do it without him! I also thank my parents and family for their much appreciated help with Gideon, our friends and family for setting up and cooking meals for us, and all the prayers and well wishes from all! We also are so thankful to our GREAT God for looking out for all of us during all of this. Mom and baby are healthy and I was able to have another natural birth! We are so blessed in so many ways!

Praising God...
