Elijah's Here!

Hello again everyone!

Mrs. Day, Melissa's mom, arrived an hour ago with Elijah in tow.

Crystal took him in to Mommy. Melissa was laboring in the bath tub and doing beautifully.

When he saw Melissa in the Jacuzzi, he asked, "Me can swim in der?"

Then, Crystal whispered in Elijah's ear, "Let's pray for Mommy" as Melissa started having another contraction.

Elijah, very matter-of-factly, replied, "I can't pray. I have my sunglasses on."

And indeed, he did. He had donned a pair of children's sunglasses, upside down (pictures to come).

We all laughed.

No baby yet, but we're close. We'll keep you posted.

Thanks for your blessings,

Wow! I can't believe I checked your blog just now, Melissa! I bet your little one is already here! How exciting to read about your labor. I can't wait to hear the news! I'm praying for you.

Love, Melody
