I promise this is not one of those posts that leads you on to thinking one thing and then I spring a surprise on you. Like the tale of the dying sourdough or the confession of my love. No, no…I promise this one is for real. No sourdough involved.
Our newest little farm hand…aka my Little Buddy. Micaiah Alexander Monroe was born on April 3, 2014 at 8:22am. He weighed 7lbs 13oz (just one ounce shy of his big sister Elyse!)
Micaiah just a few hours old!
His birth was miraculously uncomplicated. Although there were a few moments where things seems to be going downhill, the Lord was so gracious to spare me from some of my biggest fears. I was blessed to have some great support from friends and my hubby. The most hilarious story however, is my lovely friend who dashed in carrying two cups of Starbucks coffee while I was mid-pushing. Even with the gut wrenching pain of well…I’ll spare you the description…I was cracking up at the scene and feeling thankful that she did indeed make it to the birth. I also have to give a lovely shout out to my other friend who arrived in the wee hours of the morning (like 4am) to help me labor and make me laugh. Cuz that’s what I do when I am in that kind of pain. Finally, my dear Sister-in-law…Even though you didn’t make it to the actual birth…because you went in the wrong building…I still appreciate your after-birth presence. It will definitely be a story to remember.
One day old!
One week old!
