It has almost been one month since my baby girl was born and I can still hardly believe my little family has grown to 5!
Since having my baby girl at home (it’s been 2 weeks now!), we have done a lot of relaxing and just enjoying each other.. The boys are completely obsessed with her and Eli asks to hold her all the time!
I absolutely love all 3 of my children and can’t believe that the Lord has blessed me so greatly!
My family of 5 thank you again, so much more than we can express, for all of your thoughts and prayers..! There are, of course, still possibilities of learning and/or developmental delays in the future but we will cross that bridge and trust God again if we get there.
I am so thankful that the Lord has made it so easy for me to trust His work in all that has happened.. I’ve heard countless times about mothers that have a traumatic experience during delivery/birth and it continues to affect them every day. I don’t feel that way at all, even though Natalie and I came so close to dying.
I am still not sure why He let all of that happen but I truly believe in my heart that He had everything planned and we are so very lucky to have such a wonderful God looking out for us!
When thinking back on that day, almost one whole month ago, I still remember all of the terrifying details but I see God’s hand at work in all that happened. It is so easy sometimes to forget that He is always watching out for us..
But He is.. Every single day.
And I am eternally thankful!
