Introducing Griffin...

He's here!

Griffin Isaiah Valiant

Friday April 24th, 2009 7:55 am

6 pounds, 12 ounce, 19 1/2 inches

Please pray ...Griffin has unfortunately experienced some challenges much like what Jacob was born with (Called HMD) and will be in the NICU for an undefined amount of time (likely at least 4 days:-(...and I am having uncontrollable itching and feelings of fidgityness (new word;-).

I will update more soon but this needed to be quick;-)

I am trying to remain upbeat in spite of these set backs but honestly am dissappointed and seeking "why".

Here's my gorgeous boy (at least the newest one:-)

Praise God! He's beautiful!!! What a great size, too. I especially love the picture of you holding him during that special moment. So very exciting.

How long are you thinking you'll be at the hospital? I'll probably try to visit sometime this weekend...but I feel a little weird as far as when would be a good time. And don't want to intrude.

I'm sorry he's in the NICU. I'm sure you weren't expecting that with as far along as you were, but he's in the best place he can be right now and God's protecting him.

I'm so glad the delivery went well and he has arrived...he's so precious. Congratulations!!

Welcome beautiful boy! Thanks for updating so quickly. I'm not sure what HMD is (and I'm a nurse!) but I will look it up. I will be praying for you guys but I'm sure all will be well and resolved quickly!

Jennifer said...

OK...Googled it and now I get it! I'll keep you guys in my prayers but again, I know all will be well.
