Good morning!! At 1:05 a.m., Michael and Kressant Morton were so blessed to have their first born son make his grand arrival, safe and sound.
He was born right in their home, to the great delight of both father and mother, assembled sisters , Grandmama (yours truly!) and Nana, the great-grandmother. The male relatives were assembled on the deck outside - brothers , Granddaddy, and Great-Granddaddy. (Some loved ones were listening-in via cell phone! A real high tech birth!!)
Dear, precious church fellowship families were calling and praying - a birth just wouldn't be the same without friends to share it with!!
Okay, the details - he weighed 6 pounds and 2 ounces. And he's cute as a button . My babies were a bit larger than Michael, so he looks like a miniature baby to me - soooooooooooooadorable. He nurses very well. Michael and Kressant were both troopers and handled this new experience with grace and composure, thanks and praise be to God . He was so gracious to us all and we are praising His mighty name this morning!!
Uncle Samuel, Uncle John, Uncle Edwin and Uncle Paul slept downstairs in the barn all night to be able to see the baby asap, but when the time came, three of the young uncles just couldn't wake up, so Uncle Samuel got to see the baby in the wee hours of the morning.
Kressant's prenatal care was just superlative and the delivery was excellent , as well. Thank you , Lord for Michael lll.
