I will share more about our labor and delivery later, but I just had to hop online to share a couple pictures and to thank you all for your prayers!
The baby and I will be staying here at the hospital until Wednesday, so that they can continue to monitor him, due to the Group-B Strep, but so far he is doing wonderfully!
We are so thankful that our little guy arrived safely and very excited he will be celebrating his 1st Christmas with us this year!
Hail, and blessed be the hour and moment at which the Son of God was born of a most pure Virgin at a stable at midnight in Bethlehem in the piercing cold. At that hour vouchsafe, I beseech Thee, to hear my prayers and grant my desires. (Mention your intentions here) Through Jesus Christ and His most Blessed Mother.
St. Andrew the Apostle, Pray for us!
St. Thomas Becket, Pray for us!
Prayer of Mothers
Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.
