Mommy pucker up and give me a kiss.
We headed out to the hospital with excitement waiting for the new addition to our family. Amber was admitted about 7:30 am January 21, 2011; she was induced about 10am. Little James was a week late. Daddy was home for mid-deployment R&R so he can bond with his son before he returns to Afghanistan for 6 more months.
James Martin Williamson was born January 22, 2011 at 8:01. He weighed 7 pounds 1.8 oz and was 19.5 inches long. We are so happy that he is finally here. God is good!
As family and friends waited we all guessed when he would arrive, I said, “10:30pm”, to be honest I don’t remember anyone else’s guesses except James, he said “at the right time.” We all hoped it would be that day but when 12midnight came around we were all exhausted and didn’t care as long as the baby and my sister were fine. I don’t think any of us got real sleep. Well, I know my parents didn’t, they were up the whole time waiting.

Finally the doctor came in about 7am and said, “We can’t wait any more” for some reason every time they would increase the amount of pitocin the baby’s heart beat would drop. Not good! They ended up giving her a c-section. We all laid hands on her and my Dad and James prayed to God “please let everything be fine”…. God answered our prayers, James JR and my sister are fine.
We were all able to see Amber meet her baby for the first time. As the tears rolled down her eyes with thanksgiving and joy, to see her baby from God was a treat to us all. The proud parents couldn’t keep their eyes off the amazing gift they just received.
I am so thankful to be part of this great miracle! “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you” “For You formed my inward parts: You covered me in my mother’s womb I will praise You, for I am wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well Psalm 139
