On Saturday morning, May 20, I had a sign that labor would be soon. That evening I started getting strong contractions, but they weren't consistent and the timing was all over the place, so I thought I was having a false labor. Around 10:30 that night, after about six hours of contractions, my contractions were very intense and were consistently 2 minutes apart lasting one minute. We realized it was indeed real labor, got to the hospital as quickly as we could, and in less than two hours (it felt way longer than that for me) our sweet Gideon was born.
Gideon has four parents instead of two; my boys adore him and mother him like crazy. It has been so sweet to see. Elijah will get up in the morning and just stare at Gideon sleeping in his crib, waiting for him to wake up so he can hold him and play with him. Elijah and Ezra always want to hold him and fight for his attention. There is no jealousy; they love their baby brother.
He is such a joy; we love him dearly! We feel so blessed to have him as a part of our family and are so grateful for him!
