Welcome Selah

Baby Selah

My last post was about Selah's room & I closed it by saying that we were now ready for Selah to come see us!  I had no idea at the time that she would in fact make her appearance in just 2 short days!

My water broke Sunday evening (that was a bit of a shock) and after a night of labor Selah came into the world Monday morning at 7:24am!  I will write a blog at another time about my time in labor, but all I know is that like I've heard every mother say at one time or another - with one look my heart was captured!

She is absolutely amazing.  My mother-in-law said it was holy awe...I think that is fitting.

I am in awe that I had anything to do with bringing this miracle into the world.
I am in awe that previous accomplishments and priorities are suddenly dim in comparison to her.
I am in awe that the instincts have kicked in - I actually seem to know a little bit about what to do (shocking)
I am in awe of her tiny hands...tiny nose...tiny fingers...tiny toes
I am in awe every time her eyes search my face
I am in awe & thankful - for I know my life is changed

My small Selah is sleeping peacefully - can't wait until I get to hold her tiny hand!

She is beautiful!! I always knew about God's love for us but now that I have Farrah I really understand the love He has for us. Enjoy every moment no matter how big or small!

she is so beautiful and I can't wait to meet her!
one of my first funny thoughts when i heard you were in labor all night was "i can't wait to hear the labor story" ha! just knew there would be one!
also, i thought what a cool 12th bday she will have. 2-22-22
I looked up what the biblical #2 means it's the numerical symbolism of a faithful (truthful) witness or testimony! Perfect! congrats
