Ok, the long anticipated day was here yesterday. Micah arrived at 5:23 pm. We started pushing at 5:00...so he came out quick and easy. The time leading up to the "arrival" was not fun. My blood pressure was WAY low, so I was very lethargic all day. No partying with this expected delivery like we did when we were waiting for Caitlyn to arrive. (Thank you to our family who was here supporting us yesterday. And momma for you to just sit calmly in my room while I rested was very peaceful and calming for me, thank you.) I rested and slept as best I could. Finally when the time came for Micah to arrive, we had about 4 pushing sessions and here he was. He was 7 lbs and 2 oz. at 20 1/2 inches. One pound lighter than Caitlyn and 1/2 inch shorter. My doctor, Dr. Jon Rawson was amazing. I will recommend him to EVERYONE. We were so BLESSED to have him deliver. It could not have gone any better. One precious thing my doctor did at the very end was get everyone in the room to join him in singing Happy Birthday. Very sweet moment.

Caitlyn was not too sure of Micah yesterday. Caitlyn was the very first in the room to welcome Micah. I think she was concerned that he was alright. He was crying and of course had the usual medicine on his face...didn't look too normal as far as she was concerned. But she warmed up to him and in the end was finally ok with giving him a kiss goodbye before she went home. She had LOTS of questions for daddy when he went home last night to get some overnight things before returning to be with me. Daniel was wonderful. I dont know how else to put that into words. He was amazing and very helpful. I know people expect the husband to of course be helpful. BUT, he was more than that. He surpassed my every expectation and then some. I am blessed that I was the woman to snag him.
I also want to give "kudos" to my sister in law, Lindsay. Thank you SO much for taking care of our home and my "angel baby" Caitlyn. You have helped us out more than you know. Thank you and we love you.
We do have some pictures from yesterday, but they are the usual first day pictures. So we will take some more today, where he looks more pink and cuddly and I will post those soon.
Thank you to everyone who kept us in your prayers...I can tell that they were definitely heard. We love all you guys and cherish everyone of our friendships with you. We are blessed and are truly thankful.
