welcome to the world Zane Danial!

He's here, he's here, he's here!! 

I almost can't believe it. :) 

In less than 2 hours from when I realized it was really happening, this little man made his appearance at 12:14 a.m. this morning, weighing in at a respectable

10 lbs. !!!!

Can you believe it??? Holy moly. :) 

I couldn't go to sleep last night because I couldn't take my eyes off of him. 

Oh my goodness, he is PRECIOUS! All 22.5 inches of him. :)

God is so merciful- thank you so much for your prayers. The Lord answered them with a speedy fast delivery, a beautiful, healthy little boy, and a wonderfully easy recovery with no problems at all so far. We are feeling so very blessed to have been given those gifts.

Meet our newest addition, Zane Danial... :)




Zane means "God's gracious gift" in Hebrew, and that's exactly what this little boy is. :)

His birth story to come...eventually. :D For now I'm soaking in every single moment of this sweetness. :)

Congratulations!!! You may have a future NFL player on your hands. My eighth child was 10 lbs 10 oz and 22.5 inches almost exactly three years ago (born Aug.25th). He is now 90 percentile for height, 95th percentile for weight and head circumference. And he eats more than my other kids who are significantly older (but he is not chubby at all)! Just a little glimpse into the future for ya. :-)

Blessings!!

Would you believe that yesterday I decided to clean my dining room from top to bottom and while I was mopping, the Lord put you on my mind to pray for. So there I was, mopping away, sending prayer up to heaven on your behalf.... Now I see why:) Praise the Lord for an easy, healthy delivery! Enjoy every moment with him!

Congratulations Mandy! I have been praying for you the past few weeks that your time would come quickly.

My little boy was born 1 week late and that last week almost killed me because I wanted to meet my baby so badly (didn't find out the sex this time since he has an older sister and brother) and finally be done with the pregnancy. I have been enjoying getting to know my little Nathan for 10 days now and am loving all the baby snuggles. Delivery was also totally different this time because I was totally relying on God for strength and not an epidural. I was brought closer to God and my little boy and my husband through the experience. I wouldn't change anything about Nathan's birth.

So happy for you and your family! I am looking forward to reading about Zane's birth.

A huge congratulations to you!! What a wonderful gift the Lord has given your family. Just for the record, in your baby guessing game, I guess July 28 which is my oldest daughter's birthday. Instead he was born today which is my middle son's birthday. :-) It's a good day to be born.

Congratulations! He is precious! (I just also read the previous post and A) you are the cutest overdue pregnant lady I've seen and B) you have awesome hair.) I am due in 9 weeks with our first and I hope that if I go late that I can have the same wonderful attitude that you had. :) God is good!

Soak it all in! I've been a follower for a few years and have been WAITING for you and this beautiful babe! My husband even knew what I was talking about when I said the baby's born. lol. Wow what a gift. Blessed be the name of the Lord.

cal+claire said...

So glad he finally came! Enjoy him and his littleness! Your previous two posts are saved for me to read when I'm starting to feel like I'll never make it to the end. I'm only 22 weeks pregnant and I'm done, I've had enough so I know it's going to be a long road. I'm really trying to surrender it to the Lord and devote this baby to God (his name is Corban which means "devoted to God").

Anna McCrary said...

Congrats!! So glad to hear that everyone is healthy and doing well. Such a blessing! He is adorable!

Unknown said...

Congratulations! I have a Zane and he weighed 10lbs 5 oz at 38 weeks...my biggest baby of all four of my sons but he's the "smallest" in stature now :-) I'm sure you already found one of the meanings of the name Zane; "God is gracious"...

Thank you, Jesus, for this sweet little baby for Mandy and her family. I pray that your love and mercy will surround baby Zane and his family. I pray that Mandy's recovery over the next six weeks will be easy. May your love and mercy surround this family as they celebrate Zane. In your precious, precious name, Amen!

I was going to ask about the middle name. How do you pronounce it? Duh-ny-al? I've never heard of that one. It is unique. There are lots of Zanes in Michigan. It's so cute! He' a keeper.
