And indeed - Little Miss Natalie made her debut on Monday!
Vicki and I drove over to meet her on Monday after Jas got home. We ran into my friend Amy and her family visiting there also (Amy and Shanna happen to be sis-in-laws and friends).
Shanna was generous enough to let each of us take turns holding precious little Natalie.
Ahead of our visit I had been fearful that holding a baby might make me feel weepy or impatient for our Lil Man. And on the other end of the spectrum, I also hoped I wouldn't think "WHAT ARE WE THINKING?!?!" (I have never been a baby-lover like some of my friends, who want to go hold any baby that is near them!)
I was very happy to find, after having held Miss Natalie, that I felt neither of those extremes. I simply feel at peace with where we are, and content in knowing that the Lord will bring our next little one to us in His perfect timing.
