A lot has happened since my last blog, but most special of all was the birth of my newest grandchild, Taylor David Behling on August 30th, 2006. It was sooo amazing to be there assisting Stephanie as she was in labor and pushing. After all, she's my first daughter to give birth! I have 3 previous grandchildren, who I love just as dearly, but this was kind of special. I am so thankful she was okay about us being in the room with her. It wa a long labor, because she was induced and a lot of work, but when little Taylor came, it was very emotional for all of us. I was able to help by holding Stephanie's shoulders up for each push. Afterwards, I felt like I'd been doing pushups and my arms were sore for days, but I wouldn't have had it any other way. I am so thankful all went well and that the baby was fine. He weighed in at 8lbs, 12 oz, and 21 inches long. Heavenly Father is so kind and provides us with many opportunites to feel his presence, if we are in tune. I felt his presence throughout the whole miraculous event. Childbirth can definitely open the Heavens...Live, love and have joy everyday.
