I had woken up early Monday morning around 2am in labor. I was able to stay home through it until around 6am when it became pretty active and regular. We arrived at the hospital and less than 4 hours later, Israel was born. We had a lovely nursing staff and of course my Dr was a continued blessing that we were so excited to share this experience with again! I am feeling great!! I love being able to say that after nine hard months!! Labor and delivery was smooth and had no complications, which is of course a very big blessing with this being my sixth!
We are taking time this week to soak in this new little man. Matt is on vacation for the week-so thankful he had vacation time to spend at home for this. I am still managing the shop, enjoying sharing the news with so many of my lovely customers I call friends, that have been on this journey with me, just laying a little lower than usual with work. We have family coming in this weekend to meet Israel and we will be finishing up enough of our room to move in on Friday. Yep! Baby beat room-we were pretty curious about which would win out:) I like the outcome! Our oldest, Cole, had been on a camping trip for 4 days and returned home Sunday evening just in time for me to have Israel. The Lord's timing is pretty cool!
Here are some of our pics...
Bell is liking Izy's idea!
Madison is the second mama around here. Pretty hard to get Izy away from her. She is a natural and will be quite a helper!
I am smitten!
love his little cry.
Talk about a contrast! 14 years between these 2 brothers. Can't wait to see the relationship grow into God's design! I know He has a purpose in all of these things, we get the blessing of seeing it unfold.
Do you think he loves his little brother!? He has been so anxious to meet Israel whom he previously named "fireblast";) Noah is loving watching all of Izy's little movements and hearing all of his little noises. These two will be my last two at home-never thought I would have 2 young men completing our family-how fun is that!
Joslyn just giggles when she sees him and can't believe he's here-the whole thing just boggles her mind. She adores him!!
