That Just Happened

Whew, the past few days have been so packed full of stuff! Good stuff...new babies, time with my love and my family, a wedding...

On Friday I got to be in the delivery room when my friend gave birth to her sweet baby boy. Oh. My. Goodness. There are no words to adequately describe the experience. I also don't want to gross you out, ha. I seriously couldn't shut up about it for the two days after he was born and my husband, who got to hear about it the most, was constantly reminding me when I was sharing too many details, haha!
How amazing, though.  After leaving the hospital at three a.m., I had to keep reminding myself that, yep, that just happened. A living, breathing, fully functional new human was just born. My friend didn't have to do anything while he was in her tummy to make him grow, but he did. And he's perfect. A full head of hair, big man feet, and precious eyes. God is amazing. I'm just in total awe of the whole thing.

"For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s wombI praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be." Psalms 139:13-16

Welcome to the world, sweet boy. You are super loved already.
