A Precious Little Angel is Born! myspace layouts, myspace codes, glitter graphics myspace layouts, myspace codes, glitter graphics

We have been riding high as it has been a whirlwind of activities! We told Kevin and Renee that being as the hospital called and told Renee she was to be induced in labor at 7:00 a.m., that we would be more than happy to let little Ben sleep over so they wouldn't have to wake him up so early...

What a blessing that turned out to be! Seemed like we no sooner than went to bed when the answering machine came on with Kevin's voice "wake up, wake up, wake up"! I opened one eye and thought that kid...he is never going to cut the jokes, he is absolutely relentless, the gull of him calling at 5:30 in the morning, when they aren't even inducing until 7:00 a.m.

Quickly falling back to sleep, only to tuck in another 5 minutes of blissful sleep, my other eye sprang open, with the realization that "Oh my word, he sounded like he was serious. I jumped out of bed and played the message back only to realize that after the first part of the message, he was saying that Renee was 8 center meters dilated AT 5:30! With a joyful sudden awareness, it dawned on me that Renee had gone into labor naturally sometime in the middle of the night! They didn't have to induce her after all!

Gently, I leaned over the pack n' play and sang Ben awake, he first stretched his little arms and legs out and then his sweet pink little lips curled up in a sweet smile, he quickly lifted his arms up and out toward me and I gingerly swooped him up into my arms. It was hard to imagine any child bringing as much joy and love into our lives, and yet, as the seconds ticked by, his little baby sister was being born.

We were on our way to the hospital, forgetting that we would be smack dab in the middle of rush hour traffic at 7:30 a.m., the beauty of the sunshine mixed with our rapidly rising adrenaline and excitement of witnessing yet, another miracle being born seem to somehow guide us in, as if time just stood still in anticipation.

So here is how it all unfolded, Renee and Kevin arrived at hospital at approximately 3:00 a.m., wondering and I emphasize, "wondering" if she was in labor! Renee was not only in labor, but was dilated 8 center meters. They barely had time to get her prepped, when three pushes later, their beautiful baby girl, Arianna was born. weighing in at 8 Lbs 2 oz., and measuring 20 1/2 inches. Renee looked wonderful and was exhausted. She just radiated love and admiration as she held her daughter. She was thrilled that Arianna quickly had taken to nursing and had already found her index fingers to suckle after only being in the word for less than 1 hour! Kevin was beaming with joy!
We were all astounded at the full dark curly head of hair she was born with. Big beautiful eyes, and a cute little button nose.

All I ask, is that you check out little Ben's expression as he looks at his little new born sister, Arianna for the first time!

...Renee and Kevin, you have a gorgeous sweet blessed family! We are so proud of you both! Renee, you did good! :) Thank you so very much for including us and letting us be an active part of your sweet, precious family! May God continue to cradle your young family with love and blessings beyond rapture! For just the two of us, it was love at first sight! A precious little angel was born! God be willing, may you too, be blessed to experience the miracle of birth and the intense sweet "love at first sight" you feel, penetrate through your heart and soul when holding your child or grandchild for the first time.

I found your blog through someone's Thursday Thirteen list. I felt led to check it out.

Congratulations on the birth of your Grand-Baby, Arianna. I have to tell you that my oldest daughter's name is Melina Arianna. LOL! She'll be 20 in a couple of months.

I was curious as to how your Grand-Baby got the name. I got it from a book I read when I was 19. I had never heard that name before and I thought is was angelic and beautiful.

I'm sure I don't have to say this, but enjoy her... they grow up too fast.

Blessings to you and yours...

Hi Pamela,

I ran over here to see if I could link to Crystal's blog so I could read her homemaking meme but I can't find her in your sidebar. Wanna help me out? :-)
