He missed sharing a birthday with his brother and sister by six hours...
but Cricket finally introduced himself to us!
He was born on September 3rd at 5:50am, less than two hours after arriving at the hospital.
It began with blood on the bathroom floor, followed by a frantic and worried drive to the hospital, an agonizing labor and transition with me reading, singing (and eventually screaming) scripture memory songs of deliverance and ended with me pushing Cricket out in one single, impossible push- tracing the tip of his head, his neck, shoulders, back, down to his toes with my very own fingers. I was and will always be the first to touch Cricket- from the tip of his head to his teensy toes- and the first thing he ever felt in this world.
What a gift.
This pregnancy has had its' trials; gestational diabetes and blood platelet concerns and things that filled me with anxiety and fears but the Lord sustained and delivered me out of trouble at the very time He graciously sustained and delivered my precious boy.

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. ~ Phillipians 4:6-7
