Samuel Lars Larson

We were scheduled to induce tomorrow (Wednesday) at 8 am, but I woke up at 1:20 am today (Tuesday, June 30) wondering if I had a contraction. At 2:45 am I thought that must be it. We checked into Baylor hospital at 3:30 am, and he was born at 7:07 am, weighing 6 lbs., 1 oz. and measuring 17 1/2" long. We love him so much and are thankful to God for him and for a smooth, natural delivery. We got to hold him in the NICU for several hours, and our families got to see him before he was transferred to Children's Medical Center at noon. He is beautiful, had strong cries and is the greatest little guy. They've done echocardiograms and other tests and say it is a hypoplastic left heart with a dysplastic right side. We continue to thank God for him and to pray for God's will in his life.

Oh my goodness. Another beautiful Larson baby! He really looks a lot like Lucy, doesn't he? Praying, praying, praying for God's perfect timing and provision for this sweet angel, and remembering that He loves him more than we can even fathom. Thinking of sweet mommy and daddy too. We love you all.
