June 23, 2011

Hi,
Daniel is doing good. We had him to see the pediatrician and things are doing good. He's 10 pounds 4 ounces and the doctor said that was a little slow for gaining weight but it should get better when we stop the caffeine. I really thank everyone for the prayers!

I had an older lady Donna visit today and we were talking about the church and how things are and we were talking about Providence and it is something I hear sometimes. So I asked if Providence meant something more to the church and she got into how it has everything to do with why there's no birth control. I did some reading and found out it is called Providentialism and it is also known as Quiverfull.

This came up on here a long time ago and back then I didn't know a lot about the church so I said it wasn't us. I am wrong and I apologize to anyone who had me tell them we were not Quiverfull. They don't use that word but it is still the same thing if you ask me.

It's weird because living it seems pretty normal but when you have a name for it then it starts to sound sort of strange.

It is something to think about.

Update with Daniel

Forgive me if I make this short. Daniel was born almost four weeks early and he is having problems with breathing. It is better now but at first we had to have him with a humidifier and a machine to blow air up his nose all the time and now he can come out of his room more often. He should be okay after a while but it has been really hard for a while because he was doing a lot of apnea at first and it scared the hell out of everyone. We had to work to get him breathing a few times and he is on caffeine drops to help for now. The pediatrician says he should be okay in another month so we just need to get through this.

A prayer would be nice if you do that!

Daniel Paul - June 8th, 2011

Wednesday afternoon at 1:13pm Mountain Time we got to see Daniel Paul for the very first time! He's nine pounds and ten ounces and 22 inches long and he's noisy and waves his arms a lot.

Labor started around midnight on Tuesday and we called the midwife about 2am. We did it at home this time and it was so much nicer than at the hospital. The labor was 13 hours but once the birth started it went pretty quick and it was really pretty easy this time. Right after he was born there was a little excitement because I did some bleeding but then it ended. The OB today says I am fine and not to worry about it.

I would write more but it is late and I am seriously needing some sleep. I owe emails to Alice and Charity and a shout out to DT but it will have to wait, okay?

Love to you all and God bless you!
