So yes, Lydia posted on her blog. I feel so behind on things. Of course, I am in general. Life is so OVERWHELMING right now!!!! Guess it's part of being an oldest child and having the personality (freaking out over everything) that I do.
But here is the news: WE HAVE A BABY!!!!!! He doesn't have a name yet (I know...), but he was borh January 9, 2008, at 3:26 p.m. He was 8 lbs, 1/2 oz, and 20 1/2 inches long. He's so handsome!!!! (Yes, I'm biased, but I've also seen quite a few newborns, and he's remarkably good-looking for one).
WOOOOOOOOOT! *cough* Ahem. Yes, maturity. Mom, preceding this amazing occurence, was pregnant all summer, and now we have a baby and a very tired mom. :P Okay, all of us are tired.
Like I mentioned in my earlier post, all three girls went out to Salt Lake City for a speech and debate qualifier. Everyone kept warning me that the baby could be born while we were gone, but I really didn't believe it (riiiight, you may be thinking--hindsight is 20-20...). I also knew it was going to be a boy...which it is... Okay, so I was pretty sure about all this. Just ask everyone I told about it. :D
So we went to a looooong speech and debate qualifier (stress #1). On the way back home from our friends' house (who took us to Utah), our car broke down (stress #2). School started the next morning...at 6:30...and we got to bed at 11:30 pm... (stress #3).
THEN Mom went to the hospital Monday night, thinking she was going to have him (stress #4). She didn't that night, but it didn't make life easier, and it snowed, so we didn't go to school (stress #5). Now she's had the baby, and I'm in charge of all my siblings (stress #6).
But God is good. He is doing so much. I'm growing, I hope. He is amazing!
With that, I leave you. Lydia should be posting pictures, and I'll try to do so as well when I get another moment. I'm pretty tired right now, though, so this might not make a lot of sense. Your prayers (and rejoicing) would be wonderful.
