Three weeks ago today I wrote my very first blog…and since then nothing. Now, some of you might not be aware, but there was a pretty good reason for that. The very next morning, actually about 4 hours after posting the Transparent MOMent post, I woke my husband up and said, “Get up! We’ve gots to go!” Thankfully my precious mother-in-love was in town staying with us so we woke her and Monkey up to tell them bye. Poor Monkey was sad that she couldn’t go with us, but with the reassurance that she could come visit as soon as Baby R was born she went right back to sleep.
Later that morning we received some pretty adorable visitors. It thrilled Mommy’s soul to see her older babies!
We had a few hours of waiting…and about 30 minutes before Baby R’s arrival the little stinker turned to the side! My doctor decided that we would try turning me on my side first and if that didn’t work, the next course of action would be what I feared most…a c-section.
At this point, baby’s heart rate was starting to drop. It was a very emotional time ya’ll. But the Lord was neither dismayed nor put off by everything that happened and was faithful to sustain us during that time of uncertainty. Thankfully after 30 minutes baby DID turn and after only TWO pushes we FINALLY met our newest blessing! Can I just say that we LOVE our OB! She has delivered both Robinson #2 & #3. And both times as the end neared, I felt weary or scared she was ready with encouragement and each time she rejoiced with us – laughter, tears, and hugs! That dear friends is a great doctor and we are truly thankful for her.
Without further ado, we would like to introduce the newest Robinson —
We are pretty smitten and are praising the Lord of all Creation for His good gifts to us!
