Such wonderful news! Thank you for sharing with us on the day he was born. I'm so happy for you both. Gideon is beautiful! So wonderful Kevin made it home in time too. Hope he can get some needed sleep as well.

Sherry said...

Wonderful news! I'm saying prayers of thanksgiving for a healthy baby and safe delivery. And also that Daddy made it back just in time. I prayed just yesterday that he would be at peace (at his parents) not worrying to much about you and the delivery and that he would make it back home safe and in time for the birth. God is so awesome!

OH! I knew it! Kevin told me you had called and said your contractions had started, then my computer crashed! I hope you got our message on your cell phone--The girls and I were all praying for you and that Kevin would get home in time, even little Kristina prayed for you :-) I'm just now checking in and soooo glad all is well! Congratulations to YOU ALL! You rest up, and I know those boys (and little sweetie) will be very good to you :)
