Saturday, February 8, 2003

Men really do have tunnel vision.  I am realizing this as I look back on Tuesday morning.  The nurse was escorting me down to the newborn nursery to see our beautiful new bundle of joy.  I went up to the window and gazed at her forever.  I went back to our room and started entertaining our family and friends..  They all mentioned that they had been down to see her, and the fact that she was the only girl baby among many, many boy babies.  To this very moment, I do not remember seeing even the hint of another child in that nursery.  All I saw was sweet Faith Anne Businelle, born February 3, 2003, 7 lbs 15 oz, 21 inches long.  I do not have the words to describe the amazing love I feel for Jill, but I will try at another time.

We want to thank God for keeping everyone healthy through the labor and recovery.  And a very close second thank you goes to all of you that have been praying for us and Faith throughout Jill's pregnancy. Third, we want to thank God for Great-grandparents!  Jill's Mom's parents, Poppy and Granmommy, have been staying with us since we came home.  We would be lost without them.  There is so much more to share, but, all of a sudden, we have no time of our own. 

P.S.: To those of you that are mad at me for waiting until Saturday to tell you about little Faith (for example, most of my old college roommates), please keep the hate mail to a minimum as I will be reading all emails to Faith at bedtime.

John 16:21 - When a woman is in labor, she has pain, because her hour has come. But when her child is born, she no longer remembers the anguish because of the joy of having brought a human being into the world..
