And He said unto me, "My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me."
2 Corinthians 12:9

It's Here......

So our life was already changed, but TODAY, yes today!!!, well, actually last night, YES LAST NIGHT! Pierson Savannah Fox was born.  PSF aka "Critter" was born at 8:23 PM weighing a whopping 6.94 lbs and measuring every bit of 18 inches!

Already Critter has been a delight.  We cannot stop praising the Lord for the Good things He has done! 

(Special Family Prayer Time- our new little kit)

 So without any further delay, here is the whole story:

M went to bed Sunday evening with a little feeling of a contraction.  Things did progress and come 4:10 AM Monday was time!  We officially woke at 4:30 and began counting our contractions and timing the length and frequency of each.  By 7:00, our amazing Doula was at our home coaching M through each contraction.  Things seemed to be progressing very well and by 9:00 the Doula recommended that we head to the doc to get a check-up to see where we were at.  We arrived at the doc around 10:30, he liked the progress and sent us to Labor & Delivery!!!!

By 11:30 or so we were set in for the day in our room and M's contractions were progressing very nicely...but at 4:00 it was apparent that our hope to keeps things as natural as possible were not going to continue as it was determined that for the amount of time that M had been "working"  she had not progressed near enough.  It was actually due to Critter's position...against M's backbone.  So, with an epidural and a  "pretzel" position, we flipped Critter and by 7:00 we were in position to deliver.  With a little more meds in the epidural we began pushing at 7:30.....

Voila-  Critter came at 8:23 PM.....Side bar--- please note the time (Our wedding date 8/23).  Who said God doesn't have fun with our lives!

We are doing well and very thankful that Critter came into our world yesterday.  We are especially grateful as many of you have experienced the winter blizzard of 2011 that has kept most of Texas at home today. 

So what have we learned...B aka dad, can totally change fact P has not changed a diaper yet!!!!  Critter is absoultely amazing and we are having such a great time holding and loving her.  What a bond. 

I am sure more will come over the next couple of days.  We can't wait to introduce you to our precious joy and miracle!

(Please note a true lady never leaves home without her pearls)
