And Then There are Three
There are few times I struggle to find the words. But today, one week after the arrival of our son, is one of those moments. Maybe it's still the shock. Maybe it's the downsizing of sleep. Maybe it's because I am completely entranced with the overwhelming sensation of my baby on the outside --his intoxicating smell, his soul-digging eyes and his tiny, clutching, precious human form that I am nuzzling and snuggling and searching constantly. Wild horses couldn't drag me away.
And then there is Jamie, the doting dad, the tending husband, the best partner in this plow I could ever ask to be yoked beside. To say we are over the moon is an understatement. We are on our own planet.
Jameson Walden Weatherford entered this world on Saturday, June 28 at 2:17 p.m. He weighed 7 pounds 4 ounces and stretched 20 inches long. His arrival was uneventfully smooth - more than I could ever ask of him. And he's been looking at his new life with wide-eyed wonder ever since. He's even helped us catch back up on our sleep (I hope I didn't just jinx us!).
We are so grateful for the amazing staff of the Birthing Center at the Medical Center of Central Georgia and can't say enough about the dream team of Midwife Jennifer Stuckey and delivering physician Dr. Teresa Luhrs of Women for Women's Healthcare. We were in amazing hands.
More posts and plenty more pics to follow, but it's time I return to my family. Thank you to everyone who celebrates with us. Thank you for your prayers. And to the Lord Almighty, thank you for putting an angel in our care.
Jessica, Jamie and Walden love you.
