True to form, my pokey body took a full 42 weeks to finally get Baby Number 8 on the outside and in our arms, and it even 1-upped itself by going 2 days PAST 42 weeks. Huzzah, body. HUH-zah.
But he’s here (as of 4:17 AM Feb. 6), and he’s perfect, and we couldn’t be more thrilled!
His name is Shiloh Christian, and he’s not a small dude: 8 lb. 15 oz and 22 in. long!
After 3 boys who have made it to the 42 week mark and measured in at 9 lb. 2 oz. (Simon), 9 lb. 1 oz. (Honor), and now 8 lb. 15 oz (Shiloh), it’s pretty evident that that’s just what my body does!
I’m working on his birth story (it’s gon’ be goooood!), but for now, I just wanted to pop in and share a bit of baby sweetness with all of you who have been waiting to hear!
Praise God from whom ALL blessings (especially those sweet, sweet babies) flow!
