Amazing Grace

Those of you who follow my wife's blog know that we had Sophia this past weekend. She is so adorable, and I am so thankful that she is healthy.

She was 10 days early so we are completely unprepared. Some ways that God has totally pulled my butt from the fire just from this weekend:

  1. I was in Pittsburgh for closing on our new home but with Shayna headed to the OR our friend Julie stepped in for me. Totally above and beyond the call of duty.
  2. Our car seat wasn't installed because I was hauling stuff to our new house. I spent Friday night wrestling with it hoping that it would protect Sophie. Saturday morning I had Shayna call the lone guy that services Alexandria to make an appointment and the message played that he was booked for the month of June. I figured I was just going to have to strap it in as tight as possible and hope that I don't get into an accident. I headed downstairs to grab a soda and in the elevator another new father reminded me to get my car seat inspected. I told him how we tried calling today but he wasn't taking any more appointments for June. The man said he had an appointment in 10 minutes and that I can come and sit in...
  3. Saturday night Sophia was inconsolable. We tried feeding her but she just wasn't eating and we were at the ends of our rope. I took Sophie back to the nursery while she was crying hoping that they would take her. While dropping her off I met a nurse who was very no nonsense and told me at the next feeding she would be coming down to make sure it got done. 30 minutes later she showed up and Sophia ate heartily for the first time.

Thank you God for all these things and more that you have done in my life.
