1 Kings 22:14 And Micaiah said, As the Lord liveth, what the Lord saith unto me, that will I speak.
We choose these names because we want everything our son to do to be in God's strength and everything he says to be in line with what God has said!
Here he is at 6lbs 8 oz about 2 seconds outside the womb!
Our midwife was just so gentle and excited for us. It was not a cold routine where she was just waiting to get off the clock. She always asked first before she did anything to me or baby. She would thank the Lord out loud for everything that checked out right. There was no stampede of nurses assistants and pediatricians asking us for consent to give eye ointment, vitamin K, hep B vaccine, giving me an iv for pitocin, and blood pressure machines to be hooked up to. No one coming in and mashing on my uterus. No one wanting to whisk the baby away for a bath, time under the heat lamp, hearing test or anything else. I couldn't believe how smoothly everything went and how accurate the midwife was with using her herbal remedies to kick my body into labor. She is definitely an angel in disguise I am sure!
Our midwife checked Gideon to make sure he was perfect before leaving us on our own. The house was so super quiet with our 4 little ones gone, that didn't last too long when they came for a visit.
Chris brought the baby down low for all the see.
