He's Here! He's Here!



We are so thrilled to announce the arrival of our newest addition! Our chubby baby Nathanael ("Gift of God") has arrived, weighing in at 9 lbs 8 oz.


Thanks to the prayers of many, I was able to have a successful VBAC. Thank you, thank you, thank you to all of you who prayed; many of you I do not even know personally, but I am SO thankful you took the time to pray for his safe arrival, that he came right on time, and I was able to have a vbac.

We were all able to go home only 8 hours after he was born! It is SO nice to be home already, and I feel amazingly well. Nathanael is nursing well, is a big-time snuggler who likes to be held a lot, and has his days and nights very mixed up right now!



We are all just SO happy and loving every moment with him. Children are such a blessing and we are all in love with him. One of these days I will write up his birth story and share it with you all. I know you'll all understand if I'm missing in action in the blog world for the next while. If you want to know where I am...a safe bet would be on the couch snuggled up with our precious son, soaking in every moment because the days are going to fly by :-)

What sweet chubby cheeks! :)

I've been following your blog for a little while (and have been praying for the safe arrival of your little one), but haven't commented yet. :) Praising God with you on the birth of little Nathanial!

Congratulations again, Jenna! I figured things had gone well since you were all home so soon. His name is beautiful and so true. Praise Him!

How wonderful. I am so happy for you to get your vbac. I had a c-section with my 4th and was forced by the hospital and insurance companies to have another with my 5th child. To avoid it I would have had to have a home birth but with prior complications it wasn't very safe for me. I am really glad to hear you got that option and many blessing to you all. Enjoy your sweet baby.

OH Jenna, he is just wonderful baby-liciousness! I could just snuggle and love on him all day. I am SOOOO excited that you had a successful VBAC. Isn't it amazingly healing? I felt so victorious afterwards--like, "Wow, my body CAN do this!" God is so good. Praise Him!

I am so happy for you! He is the sweetest little chubba-wubba baby; absolutely adorable! And congrats on the vbac as well. I checked your blog last might and said another prayer and I'm so glad all of our prayers were answered! Enjoy that sweet little bundle of love!

Congrats!! He is a sweetie, I thought it was a boy ;o) and so glad you got your VBAC too! Isn't natural birth wonderful, can't wait to read your story.

So thankful for healthy little lamb! Rejoicing with you that God said Yes! I look forward to reading your birth story. Enjoy these wonderful snuggle days with your little one. I always liked having little ones in the winter, because snuggling was just what the weather orders (even if you live in TX)! My youngest fella will be 9 on Tuesday! The time flies. They are 12, 11 and 9 and then girlfriend 3! Enjoy all those sweet baby kisses and cuddles!
