Welcome Baby Noah

Our little church just keeps growing. Sure, we have had new families join us in the past year. But, our biggest growth has come from within. There have been four baby boys born in the past month alone at our church.

Little Noah was born on Saturday, July 24 at 1536.
Mommy Christine labored a long, 36+ hours!!! I was able to take care of her. She had the most beautiful delivery. She hardly pushed, was able to feel some of the pressure but was so in control and really got to enjoy the birth of her sweet little guy.
The new parents are so in love with this little bundle.
Here they are checking out their seconds old infant.

We do immediate skin to skin at the hospital where I work so the baby does not leave the mom unless there is some problem or the baby needs some resuscitation. Christine held and checked out her little guy ~ she did skin to skin and she had the freedom to just check him out and get to know him.

Noah was a little guy - he weighed 6 pounds 7 ounces

One proud papa
Congratulations Christine and Nick. It was an honor to care for you and be a part of your special day. Thank you for allowing me to be there. You did awesome with your days long labor and you are going to be wonderful parents. I could see the love and care that you both have for little Noah. Love him and teach him how to be a man of God.
Welcome Noah!! I can't wait to see you again and watch you grow.
