More Baby MJ

2008 at 4:47 pm   |   by Nicole Whitacre Filed under Motherhood

I spoke to Mike a little while ago (Janelle was sleeping, thankfully!) and he sent me these pictures of MJ. If any are blurry it’s probably because I took them…I’m not the photographer in the family. But Mike asked me to thank all of you again for your prayers and emails of encouragement. God answered your prayers for no c-section and for a healthy baby. Mike and Janelle are grateful for your care as yet another evidence of God’s undeserved goodness to their family.

Baby MJ

2008 at 7:08 pm   |   by Nicole Whitacre Filed under Motherhood

Stockxpertcom_id10490792_size1_2__2 Baby MJ and Mommy are both doing great. Janelle is feeling very good and MJ is healthy and content. Soon they will be transferred to the postpartum room. Right now Caly is getting acquainted with her new little sister and Mike’s parents are getting to hold their new little granddaughter for the first time. Mike and Janelle want to thank all of you for their prayers. They are so grateful!

The only pic I have right now is one I snapped with my phone, but we’ll post more as soon as we are able…

Stockxpertcom_id10490792_size1_2_8 Baby MJ came into the world just a few minutes ago. She was delivered naturally and is screaming her cute little head off right now. She’s 8lb even and 21 1/2 in long. More details and pics to come!

Birth Day Diaries: Entry Seven

Stockxpertcom_id10490792_size1_2_7 Well, the epidural worked the second time…so well that she’s been playing Solitaire on her phone while contracting. Then, just a few moments ago her water broke on its own. Nurse says she is completely effaced and ten cm. Shouldn’t be too long now!

Birth Day Diaries: Entry Five

Stockxpertcom_id10490792_size1_2_5 Just saw the doctor. He’s given the order for the epidural so she won’t have long to wait now. After examining her charts the doctor thinks she might not be as overdue as she thought. He thinks the due date was probably more like August 29 or so. That’s good news. Janelle would continue to appreciate your prayers that she will be able to deliver naturally. But of course, she is trusting God for whatever the outcome, and still joking around in between contractions. Oh, and they will break her water around 1pm or so.

Talking to Caly: “Baby MJ’s gonna be here today!”
