Healthy Boy!

Share Button

Joel and I were so blessed to hear the good news today
that we have got a healthy baby boy on the way!  (And yes, they did
confirm that he is still, indeed, a boy.) The ultrasound looked
completely normal- and the team looked long and hard at EVERYTHING for
more than an hour, spending about 10-15 minutes looking at his heart
alone.  I just can’t tell you what a relief
it is for Joel and I to
have that past us.  While there is still a small possibility Seth may
have Down Syndrome due to past testing, we just praise God that he is
healthy, Amen!?

We got to see his sweet face, but he wouldn’t
cooperate enough to get some good snapshots for the Web site, so we’ll
all just have to wait to see what he looks like when he arrives (I’m
hoping for a Joel clone)……we do know that he weighs about 3 lbs now
and already has a head full of hair- can’t believe they could tell that
at 31 weeks already, but technology doesn’t cease to amaze me.  He had
his little hands up by his face most of the time and also enjoyed
having them tucked under his chin as he rested his head on mommy’s
tummy.  We got to see him opening and closing his eyes and mouth, as
well as swallowing and yawning.  Can’t tell you how that thrilled us!

Thank
you, thank you, thank you for standing with us in prayer throughout
this journey- and thank you for all of your sweet words of
encouragement and blessing over our lives and our baby boy.  We ask
that you continue to pray for Seth in the coming weeks leading up to May 10
(give or take). 

I told Joel that my prayer is that Seth is perfect and complete, lacking
in nothing, not so that our lives will be easier, but so that his life will bring honor and glory to the name of the
Lord.  Let today be a testament to all of us of God’s
power, His faithfulness and His grace in our lives.  We praise God for this trial of waiting that we have been enduring over the past few months.  We have learned so much of His character and unfailing love for us- and continue to learn that every day, we have to lay down our burdens before Him, for we can’t carry the weight of the world on our own.

Let everything
that has breath praise the Lord!

Much love,  Em

    Something told me to look at your website today and there couldn’t have been better news! Congrats on the good word from the doctors. Emily, you look amazing in the picture. Maybe you should be “barefoot and pregnant” all the time!
