The whole experience of getting induced was so much easier than my previous labors. It was gradual and much more peaceful. We felt very carried in prayer. On Saturday night, before church started, our Pastor came and prayed for us. Tony and I both were feeling nervous about the delivery but when Pastor Al was praying, he started talking about how children are a reward and he was thanking God for the reward we were about to receive. Something just clicked for both of us in that moment and from then on, especially throughout the labor process, Tony and I both had so much peace from the Lord knowing that we were so close to seeing this new gift and reward from the Lord.
With every baby, my pregnancies get more intense but the babies get easier and easier! This little guy is amazing and the sweetest and most mellow baby I've ever been around! Even his cry is sweet! He is completely God's grace in my life especially with him being my third baby. I was a little worried before I had him that I was going to be a little overwhelmed without having family around, homeschooling one kiddo, entertaining a 2 year old, and not having my Hubby close by... However, God has totally blown my mind and has made this transition the easiest and most peaceful yet! I am so thankful! And I am not pregnant and sick everyday which has made each day even that much sweeter!
This first week having a baby boy in the house has been incredible and Tony and I are in so much awe of God and His favor in our lives. Children are a true gift and reward from the Father and we are SO SO thankful He has chosen to bless us with 3! I am amazed!
Thank you to everyone for all your prayers and encouragement over the last few months... they have been such a blessing to our family!
