and my little Gabriel Joseph has not yet completed his third day of life. He started July with bang at 5:30 p.m. at 6 lbs. 9 oz. and 18 inches long.
My third grandson...this never gets old.
And all seemed right with the world.
I have a unique perspective. In some ways I know too much...working in a Children's hospital with babies in intensive care units. My daughter was seen during the last four weeks of her pregnancy by a perinatal specialist physician with concern about his size and needing to rule out intrauterine growth restriction, which could have serious implications.
I know that every baby that survives outside its mother's womb is a miracle. The intricate complexities that God has designed are a wonder!
And rediscovering that miracle in this brand new life brings exceeding joy beyond words.
