When you are everything to everyone, well, you had better act like you have it all together.

The grand reveal of my nephew: GT3

Last week was an adventure.  Monday afternoon I got a call from my mom.  My sister was in labor with her 3rd baby!  It happened to be a perfect time for me to pack up myself and Micah, leave the big kids in Matt's care and drive on to New Mexico.

Of course as soon as I got down the road, the car started doing something funny.  Oh well.  It's just bad gas I told myself.

When I was too far to turn around, I realized it was more than bad gas.  There was a big problem!  We were in the middle of an hour and a half stretch of nothing.  I prayed that God would be merciful and allow Micah and I to make out of the wilderness and into town.  Not sure how the Israelites survived the unknown for 40 years in the desert.  I was done at about 40 minutes.

We pulled into town and made it to my parents front drive just in time to see them jumping in the car with my 2 nieces.  It was time!!  Our baby was coming into the world.  I was able to get my car back on the road and drive to the hospital.  We had made it.  I prayed a prayer of thanksgiving and amazement.
Walking to L&D

Sooo excited!

Babies are always exciting in our family.  Everyone anticipates the birth.  Many phone calls are made to the mother in the weeks leading up to delivery.  You see, we don't mess around when it comes to laborWe like to go early and we like to go fast!  

But this birth was even more exciting.  My stinker of a sister likes to wait until the baby is born to find out the sex.   The nerve of some people!

We were biting our nails in the waiting room.  My sister's girls Ava and Liv were more patient than all of us!

 Well, we did get a little silly.  It was way past our bedtimes.

Finally, the doors opened.  Out came new papa George.

  We followed him to the room and there was my beautiful sister and her new baby....they still wouldn't tell us what the baby was.

They made us guess!  

30 seconds seemed like an eternity before my sister said, "It's a boy!!"  Oh my goodness!  A little brother!

I was so excited for them.  I wanted my sister to feel the special bond between a mother and her son. 

 I wanted daddy George to have a namesake and a partner.
I think it is love.

I wanted the girls to have an understanding of men that only women with brothers have.

Mr. George Tre Flores III will do all of those things nicely.  Precious little man.  

God told me about you.

He told me you were coming to meet us.  On the road, I prayed for you and asked for your safe delivery.  God said you would be a boy and that I was to pray blessing over you.  That when I held you, I was to pray for the anointing of God to be on your life.  You my sweet boy, are special.  I will continue to pray.  God has much in store for you baby.

Thank you Heather and George for allowing me to be a part of this time.       


Oh and P.S.  When God wants you to be somewhere, he will get you there.  My car broke down completely on the way back from the hospital.  I am sure He was the author of my trip and the sustain-er of my car.  Thank you God that your ways are higher than mine!  If I had gotten my way, I would have turned around out of fear and missed out on all of this!  You are good in all of your ways.
