Baby Nathan

He's here!!

Nathan Edward
born April 26, 2013 @ 9:49 PM
8 lbs, 1 oz
21 inches long

What a difference 12 hours can make!!  I'm not going to write much about his birth because I'm still processing it--it was very difficult (although I did finally manage to go into labor on my own [the day before my due date] for the first time) and I'm struggling to recover.  But I'm thrilled that he is here in my arms.

He's so precious! So glad you went into labor on your own, even though the delivery was hard. I swore after Genevieve I never wanted to do that again, but yet here I am thinking about it. Get better fast and don't beat yourself up if it takes a while. Some people say it gets better with each kid, but I just think it is different depending on all the individual circumstances. It blows me away to see all FIVE of your kids. You are one amazing woman!

I love Neil's shell-shocked face. Classic.

Nathan is gorgeous. Congrats, friend, on all of it. You done good. :)

He is so beautiful! And he looks so tiny! And Lukey looks so huge! You are a superhero!

Hooray, hooray! Welcome, Nathan! Great job, Rachael! So happy for your whole sweet family. Hope everything is going well getting settled in as a family of 7(!)

Love the pic of you all together. Glad Nathan made it here safe and sound. I agree with Jolena. Wow--I never expected to just be starting to feel normal when my baby turned 20 months with the fourth child. I have learned and am still learning that the Lord is in charge--not me.This process of bringing life into the world is serious business! I still tell myself to take it a day at a time.

Nathan is so sweet!

Congrats!! with a hard recovery, take every bit of help people are willing to give! I felt like that made a huge difference with my last delivery! Let us know if there's anything we can do down in Texas to help you out!!!

I've been following your blog for a while, I'm Neil's cousin Erika. Congrats! We are excited for you and your family. We just had our 5th in January but our oldest is 11.5 and it's been a struggle (mostly because of all the activities our older kids are involved in) so I commend you. You have beautiful children! Good Luck with everything!
