Today was one of the best days of my life! I seriously couldn’t have asked for anything better than what happened as my wife delivered lil Emersyn Lynne Head.
When Erika was pushing so hard to bring Emersyn into this world for her birthday, I can’t describe the emotions I had as she pushed with everything and gave it her all! I was so proud, Erika is now a hero to me! I was so impressed, I just stood by her side and encouraged her, got the hair out of her face and kissed her on the forehead many times.
Then at 3:01 pm: after 20min of extreme pushing, there she was. I was allowed to cut the cord and Emersyn was crying and perfect! The joy on Erikas face was priceless, and beautiful. We have been waiting on this little girl for 38 Weeks and 4 days. Emersyn went from a lil person that kicked that would constantly be kicking Erika in the ribs and at times very irritating to her. To a beautiful, precious daughter that we instantly fell in love with. Our baby girl who is now and forever unconditionally loved. I watched Erika as they were preparing Emersyn, the anticipation to hold her little girl. So much excitement and with tears in both of my girls eyes they met, and Erika was able to hold her precious daughter.
We then prayed all together as a family we just prayed that she would impact the world as much as she impacted us on this day. That people would see Christ in her life and that she would go and do great things for Him from this day on.
Seriously we are blessed to be able to have such a healthy baby girl. Here are her stats:
7/28/11 – 3:01pm – 7lbs 8oz. 20inches long
Then they gave her a 9.9 from birth to the bed! Which is awesome, and she was born on the hospitals record setting day of babies being born in one day! She is already breaking records!
I could go on and on, and will do in posts to come. Just know I am in LOVE, thank you Jesus for our new baby girl!
