Oh, what a gift! Our baby Nathanael

Dearest friends!  It is such a joy to be able to love on and hold our little blessing.  We are ever grateful that he is here, our world enriched for sure!

Bringing this sweet baby into the world was both exactly what we had hoped for and so far from what we had expected!  NEVER did I think that he would choose to wait until Day 13 past his due date to make his delightful arrival!  But, in a beautiful tapestry of the Lord’s timing, our releasing our silly attempts for control, and gracious perfection – baby Nate entered the world right when he was supposed to!  Laboring to bring him into the world was pretty incredible; I am moved and grown by the experience to be sure.  The goodness of our Lord was so evident in the entire labor and post-labor as well.  We have felt loved and encouraged by our amazing community of friends and family.  The Lord has given to our Wallace family most abundantly.

It is hard to believe that it’s been over a week since his arrival!  Transitioning to “more awake time” at night, having swings and bouncy seats return to our house, seeing old memories regain new life as we watch them through new lenses as second-time parents!  My most wonderful husband has loved me so well.  I am beyond words for the goodness that I have been given in him.

We are joyous!!
