The miracle has finally arrived!!
What an answer to prayer!
Huge Congrats to Kristi and Chris!
Our whole family has been praying for this little guy for years, the Lord is so faithful! We were all overjoyed to meet this little man (who looks JUST like his daddy!!). I mean you just have no idea what a celebration this is! All babies are a miracle, but this little guy . . . he is the icing on the cake!
Lets just say there was no shortage of tears, LOL!
Yes, that is 18 minutes (I am not jealous, I am not jealous, I am not jealous, LOL).
No epidural . . . she ROCKS!!
In the pix above she is on the birth ball, which I understood to be her favorite spot (was mine too for 2 of my labors). They labored mostly alone, she and Chris, and from what I have heard, he was amazing as her support person.
I will admit that I was so nervous about her birth, I always am when someone gives birth in the hospital (if they are at home I am not worried at all, LOL!! I know most are opposite ;0) But praise the Lord, no complications or issues at all, everything went wonderfully, we couldn't have asked for anything more! She was treated wonderfully by everyone, even when she declined things like eye ointment and vit K and asked them to delay cord clamping (go girl!!)
On and on another interesting note . . . Kristi has been in and out of the hospital all week with kidney stones (which have still not passed). She has had them before (passed one just like a month ago in fact) and the pain is supposed to be excruciating. Many compare it to childbirth. She was having kidney stone pain the day before, and then was in labor all day yesterday (bless her heart). We thought she would be a good one to ask since both were back to back and fresh in her mind, so we told her that after she had the baby she would have to tell us which was worse.
One of the first things she said when we came in the room to see Jackson was that in her experience now, she said . . . labor is worse, LOL!
