So this is what a 14th Generation American looks like.
He descends on both sides of his parentage from people who settled in America in the early 1600s.
I hope he will feel proud of his heritage and live a life that will love and honor God, just as generations before him have.
Bernie was half way across America this morning. He was able to fly home and be here two hours after Luke arrived.
I had spent the night at the hospital waiting for the birth, but I left once I was told he had safely arrived without seeing him.
I wanted to share the experience of seeing our first grandchild with Bernie.
It was worth waiting a couple of more hours to meet Luke in order to have that be a shared experience.
Labor was long...pushing lasted a long time too.
For a little guy who had been squashed in labor and was twelve days over due, he was very mellow.
Those feet...with the newborn peeling skin.
Precious in our sight.
We bless God for a safe arrival of a healthy child and for the new parents too.
Thanking God, and those who prayed for his safe arrival.
