So when I started feeling contraction on Sunday morning, I was quite surprised. But God's ways are not our ways, and His timing is not ours. He knew better. I actually ended up with a doctor I hadn't met before, but I liked her much better than my own. Not sure if my doc would be able to handle my baby.
Our little one - Matthew Peter - was born at 2:16pm, just 3 hours after we'd arrived at the hospital. He was 10 lb 2 oz, and 22 inches long. We've beaten our own record! Our first born, Bogdan, was 9 lb 4 oz, and our daughter, Daryna, was 9 lb 15 oz.
What a wonderful child God has given us! He is so precious! God is so good to us!
Bogdan and Daryna were super excited. I am grateful to the Father of lights for all the good and perfect gifts He's given us (James 1:17). All our children's names bear the same meaning - Bogdan literally means "God-given", Daryna is derived from the word "dar" which is "gift", and Matthew means "a gift of Yahweh". It is so true of all of them! We praise you, God, for three amazing gifts You've entrusted us with!..
