It has already been a whole week since Tirzah Hope's birth! Though things didn't go according to "the plan", I am so blessed to have had a wonderful experience. So far, Tirzah is an amazing little baby. She is so delightful in countenance and she takes a pacifier!!! She sleeps really well, thus giving me a week of sleep that I haven't experienced in over a year!!! My recovery is slow but I am feeling much better. I am blessed to look around my table and see the 12 olive plants God has given to the Houston home. This morning Selah prayed over breakfast and said, "and thank you for Mama's baby, Daddy's baby, my baby, Ezekiel's baby...." I love that she knows that Tirzah is all of our baby and not just "mommy's"! It is a most wonderful thing to have a newborn in our home once again.
