Josiah is ten-days old today. That’s pretty amazing.

The picture here is actually of Josiah’s second walk (and, yes, his stoller is a Jeep — what of it?). He’s been on several outings since being born, but finding time just to get out and walk around has been tough. Thankfully, we’ve been able to go for a couple of times around the block now.
The Wednesday before Josiah was born, Tim’s mom flew in from California. It was nice to see her and we were so glad to have some help for the next couple of weeks.
The day of Josiah’s birth was a long one — sixteen hours of labor, if you hadn’t already heard. Both Tim’s and Julianna’s moms got to the hospital at around 8am on April 17th to wait it out. At about 3:30pm, they decided it would be best to go home and wait for a call. This is also the time that Julianna asked Tim to ask the moms to pray. Then, a little over an hour after the moms left, Julianna got to start pushing — which only lasted about an hour.
It is funny in retrospect — of course we would have the baby right after everyone left the hospital — but we love when we can see when prayer works.
Tim’s dad got to town the next Wednesday. He sure was a proud Grandpa when he got to see Josiah for the first time.
All of the grandparents are so proud, in fact. We’re sure that they are going to spoil Josiah!
It sure seems like it’s been longer than ten days. Tim goes back to work next Tuesday and Julianna has about six more weeks off. It will be fun to see how Josiah develops in that time.
