Now if you hadn’t notice that all our kids start with ‘Em’, so we wanted to stick with that.
Emerson: brave/ powerful
Daniel: God is my judge (honoring my paternal grandfather)
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”
This verse has been sort of etched in my heart, not long after Emerson was born. Part of it I believe is that Emerson is our rainbow baby . Our family miscarried last year, just a few months prior to being surprised with this little guy. As I waited to head in, to what would be the first of 2 surgeries for my hand.
*I, in a fit of frustration after finding that my dog had , in the kids bedroom. I attempted to slam our picket door, well let’s just say it slammed me. Within moments I noted the deformity of my left middle finger.
Anyhow, it seemed to be taking a while for the surgeon to come back, but I figured sometimes doctors are running late, I get it. As Dr. Roberts approached he states...Mrs. Calderon your PREGNANT! Huh, please repeat that, because I’m sure I misheard. I mean just 2 weeks prior in the ER the test was negative. Well he was sure, because he even had them repeat.
Well off I went into surgery. Upon returning to the recovery room, Elvin walks in. I’m pregnant...
WHAT? I thought you went to get your finger fixed? Yeah me too, but I’m also with child. Neither one of us was expecting this news, although we do have two older kids, so we know how things work
Once again we decided to not find out the gender of the baby. We just prayed for health for me and baby. Although Emmanuel, our eldest had apparently already named and claimed that he was having a baby brother. He had enough of his sister Emelia at this point. It didn’t help that my sister who was expecting was having a boy. So Manny knew his cousin was getting a baby brother. Mia could care less, but she had been seen being sweet to other children who were smaller than her.
God answers prayers because on 06/06/19 @20:23 weighing 8lbs 11oz our handsome baby boy was born. We were elated. Our family
