On July 11, 2014 at 8:08 am, the Lord blessed us with our third priceless treasure Miss Eliana Joy! We are thrilled beyond words at how God continues to pour His love on our family.
We were informed later that day that she had four bans showing signs of infection, possibly related to the Antigen little c that was present in our prenatal blood work and checked every other week. So her pediatrician started her on two I.V. antibiotics. I shouldn't have, but worried that she would not be able to come home "in time" on Sunday; but God who works all things out took away the infection and we both came home on Sunday the 13th.
We are so grateful to each of the wonderful and caring labor and delivery nurses and Dr. Diamond on staff at Coffee Regional Medical Center that cared for our princess and her mommy.
The sweet lady who registered me for pre op. has a photography business on the side, and she came and took some pictures of Eliana's first moments in the nursery …
THREE MORE DAYS! This Friday we will be checking into the hospital at 5 am! Yes, we are getting very excited around the Horton house, and with doctors orders to rest and keep my feet up as much as possible, the "to do" list will have to wait. Joshua has been amazing keeping things running smoothly and getting as much done as possible while planning and organizing for VBS which is at the end of July.
We had an ultrasound about four weeks ago, and here is a profile picture of our sweet little girl. The health concerns we asked you to pray about months ago, with an antigen present in our blood and titer levels being checked every other week has stayed neutral. Praise the Lord, our doctor does not seemed concerned that this will be a health risk! God is so good! Thank you for praying with us.
The boys are beyond excited (well, Ethan is; I'm not sure that Elliot is aware of the addition to our family that's coming). Amidst the excitement my little builders helpe…
Thank-full heart. This is how I would describe today. So grateful for the freedoms we have in our country and the men who risked their lives when signing the Declaration, back in 1776. Thankful for friends who invited us to their family cookout, sandy boys who were in the big sand box for over two hours, country fireworks, nine flavors of icecream, watermelony kisses, a week until our due date, and sweet smiles are just a few things I am thankful for today.
Sweet Elliot was too busy to stop for the camera.
But Ethan encouraged him to pause for a second :)
Oh I love these sweet boys of mine!
Happy Independence Day from the Hortons!
