Welcoming.......

Silas Josiah!! He was born Friday Dec 19th. After having 5 boys in a row, we have had 5 years time of welcoming precious little pink bundles, so to have a boy again after so long is quite a joy!

If you dont want to here the "details" of the birth than stop reading now, although I will try to not be too graphic.

I knew Friday morning that it was the long awaited day. I had a few errands I had to run and about half way through them I was ready to go home, when labor starts for me it gets going quick and hard so home sounded really good! Around 3:00pm it kicked in with contractions about 1 minute apart, there was no turning back now LOL.

I found that the best position was on my knees with Rob pushing in hard on my lower back this is basically how I stayed for 45 minutes of contractions coming one after the other. Finally I felt the head descend and then go back up, I dont think Rob believed me because he looked and said "theres no head" I told him "the next push will be the head" and sure enough out it came. I heard Rob say" Oh, my gosh Audrey this kids head is huge" Thats good to say AFTER the birth....not during LOL.

Heres where things get a bit hairy. I got his head out, but his shoulders were stuck. It sounds worse than it was, it took me about 2 minutes to get him out with me pushing and Rob pulling (gently) but out he did come. He is perfect and handsome just like his daddy and brothers before him. He was born around 4:00pm weighing in at a whopping 9 pounds and 21.5 inches long. Elohim was so good to us and was with us through the whole delivery. With great Joy we add another eternal soul to our family for the Glory of Our Father.

Photos to follow soon!

Isn't it great to go HOME to have your baby?! I had all of my kids at home, with just hubby and I, and I would never have had it any other way. I had stuck shoulders with my fourth, but they really weren't stuck, stuck... If you know what I mean. I was just letting my body do the pushing - I wasn't putting out any effort - just letting it happen, so when the shoulder didn't come out, I gave a push, and they popped right out.

Birth is a family event and a normal bodily one - it's not a medical event, unless there is something wrong.

So... CONGRATS on your new sweet bundle of joy! Pictures please!

Welcome this little boy.

Oh that there were such an heart in them, that they would fear me, and keep all my commandments always, that it might be well with them, and with their children for ever! Duet 5:29
