So, he’s here. John Paul Francis Wilkerson 10 pounds 10 ounces. Good baby, eats well, and we are enjoying our hospital vacation currently.
How much do we love nurses? Because we make an appearance every year or so, a couple people here have gotten to know us. One of our favorite nurses actually transferred so she could be with us our first night. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate the vocation of nursing. I may/may not have had a bit of a mental breakdown last night due to no sleep and lots o’ pain. The nurse was so awesome. We figured out a way I could sleep a bit (with JP in the nursery between feedings) and she regulated my pain meds differently so it was more consistent. What a blessing!
Speaking of blessings, I will never be able to thank everyone properly for the prayer support we had on Wednesday morning for delivery. As many of you know, I was very VERY nervous going into the surgery both for myself and for the baby. Everything turned out so well. This was the first surgery I wasn’t sick through, and I had that special grace of calm I so desperately wanted. When I saw sweet John Paul and knew he was okay, I felt with certainty the prayers of everyone. So thankful for the body of Christ.
Then there was this...
Oh, and this. I have never felt so blessed in my life as I did when I had all three of my boys together in the hospital room. Well, four including Aaron.
Look closely! Best pictures ever? Someone knows the way to this girl’s heart.
And finally, people keep asking if we will have another…as long as the picture below keeps happening…you know it!
