Our little bundle of joy has arrived

Turner joined our family at 8:58 (apparently I was born at 8:59). He came out weighing 9lbs even, he was 21 3/4 Inches long with a head of 13 and something. I don't still know all the details still as it was a whirlwind of information and activity.

He is seriously one of the most beautiful babies I have ever seen. He has his dads Eyes, nose, ears, feet, hands. He has my mouth (and beak, mom), my chin and my hair.

Praise the Lord that we made the decision to do a c-section as the cord was around his neck twice and he was facing out so it would have been hard and brought us to the point of an emergency. The decision was already hard, but I do not do so well having to be rushed into something scary.

Jesus continues to show me He is in control and I so appreciate the lessons that He is bigger than I.

Another great praise is that I was able to have both Torrey and Amy in the delivery room and my brother-in-law gave up two days vacation to stay with the kids so Amy could be with us.

I am filled with so much joy and gratitude for God's faithfulness, provisions, care, family, etc.

Here are a few pictures, for now, of our Turner David Bruce. We didn't want you to have to wait to see how cute he is.

WOW, we are a DAD AND MOM!!!

Pray for us as we learn to turn to God in our rearing of Turner.
