Spring Break Morning

The sun was out and it was beautiful this morning. A perfect way to start 6 days of no school for child #1!

Since Husband is home, I ran down to the beach to see what I could find. It was lovely! See what I found?

This was referred to as "snot colored" by Child #1

If you haven't heard, I had baby #3 and I couldn't be more content! We love this little spirit and feel so thankful for her safe arrival. We named her Cora. I still have wonderful thoughts swirling around my head from this amazing delivery. But the one thing I will comment on right now, is how labor is so like life. We must go through it. There isn't any "around" or skipping over.

With that said, my delivery was easy. I had an epidural and the pushing part wasn't painful (the after effects were!). It was a quiet delivery room with a wonderful nurse and my husband. The midwife came in half way over and gently stepped in and then it was done! Seeing baby immediately on my chest after birth was so rewarding. We didn't know if it was a boy or a girl so for husband to say, "it's a boy!... No wait, it's a girl" (the umbilical cord made things confusing!) was a wonderful moment.

I have been feeling such gratitude for this child. I feel like the Lord heard my constant prayers and efforts of faith. She is a "fruition" of our faith. Truly faith is a power!

Happy Easter Week-


  1. So so happy for you guys and this blessing in your life. What a lucky child to come into your family! Can't wait to meet her. xoxo

  2. Hooray for Child #3! I'm sure she will bring lots of happiness (and good luck, particularly for Child #2 and the constant head-rubbing...) to your family! Great days...

  3. Kristin, thank you so much for your kind words over on my blog! Your comment was so sweet and it's a blessing to know that even though our faith paths are different, we share the same love for God!
