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!
