,,and now, the photos for which you've all been waiting!






Okay, people have been requesting more photos of our sweet baby Daniel. (In my defense, can I just say that my camera cord was missing for nearly the first two weeks of his life? :) Thanks for letting me deflect blame).
Here are a few! These are all taken within the past week, so they are recent.
I cannot believe he is three weeks old already, WOW! (This time three weeks ago, I was getting ready to start pushing, yikes!!!).

I am ever reminded, DAILY, of God's faithfulness in giving us such a successful, wonderful birth experience. Did I mention that we had a completely unmedicated birth? (NOT bragging, because believe me, I sure gave that epidural some consideration about this time, haha!----but I knew that any interventions that *I* allowed were going to take me one step closer to that Operating Room, and I did NOT want that! The pain was worth it; I'd do it again!). God has been so good! He IS good, all the time, anyway....amen.

So, here are some pictures! :)

AWWWWW! He is precious and grown so much already! No gold medal as they say, but what you are left with as a woman is even better isnt it? How can one even describe natural birth and what a woman gets out of it? When I reflect on my glorious memory of it and having grown babies now, it was the PERFECT thing to prepare me for motherhood. Praises to God for the miracles our bodies are!

WTG!!!!!!

Oh, my! I've forgotten how big some babies can be! My last two have been over 9lbs. I'm hoping and praying for a smaller baby this time around.

P.S. I just want to pinch those chubby little cheeks!
