Welcome, Adalynne!

The Birth Story

On Tuesday, Amy went to the doctor for the 40-week checkup. Since she hadn't dialated at all, they scheduled her for an induction to take place on Thurday evening. But the Lord had a different plan.

At about 4:30 am on Wednesday, Amy called me home from work because she was having strong contractions. A couple of hours later we dropped Alora off at the Millers and headed to the hospital. Since Amy didn't get an epidural, she didn't have to be confined to a bed. So, she spent most of the morning walking around the hospital, relaxing in a whirlpool bath and sitting on an exercise ball. Finally, at 4:13pm Adalynne was born!

"Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warriorare the children of one's youth. Blessed is the manwho fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate." -Psalm 127:3-5 (ESV)
