And Then There Was Jonah

I am so blessed. I am so lucky. I am fortunate.

Jonah Matthew Rios came on Saturday October 27th, at 8:28pm. He was 9.9lbs, 21.5 inches long and practically climbed and crawled his way out into this world. His demeanor so far is strong and sweet. He seems to have this thoughtfulness behind his eyes like he's saying "yes I know you've been waiting for me, but you had things to do and so did I before I came."

His coming into this world was a true test of my physical endurance, my mental will power and honestly my trust in a power way higher than myself.

I love my husband more now than I ever thought humanly possible. He is so loving and selfless. He is so supportive and amazing. He is my other half.

God definitely does not disappoint in the not giving you more than you can handle department right now in our household. He gave my husband and I the thrill and scare of a lifetime within hours of Jonah's birth. We were humbled to ashes by him with a quick change in my body a couple hours after delivery and I was close to leaving my husband with a new baby on this Earth alone.

 From elated to scared in seconds, his power is so strong. He saved me within those next minutes/hours and continues to show me second to second how much Mr. Big Dog, little Jonah and I can handle together now as a family.

I'm physically weaker than I've ever been, but stronger spiritually than ever. I am grateful for my life, my husband and of course my new little man.

I had heard a baby really makes you stop to smell the roses......I couldn't agree more:)


  1. Congrats!! May the Lord continue to bless your family beyond measure!!

  2. Congratulations! I'm so glad everything is fine. I had a nagging concern that something was wrong and had been praying for you all week. Take your time to get strong and don't overdue - let people help you! :)

  3. "Every good and perfect gift comes from God." (James 1:17) You, Jonah, and even Mr. Big Dog are perfect gifts to us...directly from God. Grandpa and Grandma Rios

  4. congratulations! saw the beautiful pics on moms' blog. Jonah is a true gift!

  5. You all are in my daily prayers. Take care NOT to overdue as you will need your strength to take care of that little (?) sweet blessing. I'm just a phone call away if you need anything my life time pal.
