This morning at 9:10am God brought a new life into the world. Our daughter Sophia. She is hearty and strong. 7.5 pounds and 19.5 inches long.
Sophia came quickly once Sarah’s body was ready. But getting to ready took time. Early Friday morning around 4:30am Sarah’s water broke, but no strong contracts came until the evening. The midwife came to our home about 9:00pm and stayed until 4:30am when she recommended that we go to the hospital since no baby had come within 24 hours of her water breaking.
So we hopped in the car and drove to the hospital in the wee hours of the dawn and Sarah was able to kick start some contractions. Within minutes Sophia was born.
Justus is now a big sister to a little sister. She doesn’t know what to think quite yet, but interest in this new person taking up her parents attention.
Sarah and Sophia are resting from a long day of waiting.
More to come…
