Yesterday after 50+ hours of penance, our sweet little boy was born naturally. He will be baptized Malachi Benedict and arrived at 7:46pm, weighing 8lbs. 9ozs. and measuring 22ins.
Baby and I are both doing wonderfully and Papa Phillip is catching up on some much needed sleep after 2 nights without any. He was a magnificent coach and I was so blessed to have him as my rock. I am also utterly grateful for the additional presence of our faithful Doula, Melissa, whose aid allowed Phillip to fulfill his identity as coach and father. Labor was a joyful hurt that we are looking forward to enduring again when God wills.
Future posts will be sparse for a time as we embark on our first Babymoon!
