Announcing…

Morrow John Piper

Born August 22, 2008 at 12:22 pm

Weight: 7 pounds, 13 ounces

Length: 20.5″

The first time I held him (immediately upon birth).

One proud dad.

Already fallen in love.

We came into the hospital last night and I received two small doses of a pill designed to soften the cervix and prepare for induction the next morning. We actually managed to sleep through our nervousness and excitement (after watching the men win gold in beach volleyball, of course).

This morning they started a very slow dose of Pitocin around 7:30 am. I hung out around 3 cm for most of the morning and after they broke my water, the contractions increased drastically (in amount and amplitude).

I opted for an epidural around 11 am, which, in my humble opinion, was amazing. I took a short rest after that, then Abraham decided to go get some lunch around 11:50 am.

Ten minutes later the nurse came in to check me and told me I was between 9 and 10 centimeters. I was absolutely shocked. I kept asking her, “Are you serious?”, “Are you sure?”. She said she’d let my doctor know. In the meantime, the resident doctor came to check on me. I told her I was feeling quite a bit of pressure. She checked me and said, “You’re ready to deliver. He’s right there.”

I immediately freaked out. Abraham wasn’t even in the room!!! So we waited and waited for him to get there, with nurses scanning the cafeteria looking for him. He was coming up the elevator, and someone asked him,

“What room are you in?”

He said, “I don’t remember.”

They said, “Are you with Molly?”

“Yes,” he answered.

“She’s already delivered!”

Abraham rushed back into the room with a pit in his stomach, thinking I was going to be so mad at him. I was only thinking about how heartbroken he would be if he missed it. Thankfully the person in the elevator was wrongβ€”I hadn’t delivered, but only because he wasn’t there yet.

Three pushes later, on 8/22 at 12:22, we said hello to our precious baby boy, Morrow John Piper.

He is amazing already. You can see a few different pictures on Abraham’s site, too!

    It’s hard not to be moved to tears (after only finding out this morning you were expecting again – good secret! – to us who read your blog anyways) over what God has restored. And, hello, the date and time are just now hitting me! More tears. *sigh* God is soooo Good! I know you’ve read this alot today, but I have never met you and yet it feels so cool to know that hundreds of people are rejoicing with you and your family today. Congratulations – he’s beautiful!

    Congratulations!!!! I don’t even know you in person, but I feel like I know you through your blog. We are so happy for you and your husband. Please keep us posted as to how things go in the coming days and weeks. I’m amazed you were able to pull off this secret from your blog readers. I don’t think I’ve ever had more of a blog shock than yesterday when I read you were not only pregnant, but having the bayb (and at first wasn’t even really sure if I was reading that right!). Anyway, God bless you!!!!

    It was so wonderful to read of your good news, and to be reminded of how good God is. His mercies are new every morning, and great is His faithfulness.

    Morrow is beautiful, with a wonderful name to tell others the story of his beautiful big sister.

    I am so thankful God gave you this sweet boy. Enjoy!

    You are a true blogger! You blog the day you give birth! I wasn’t blogging when I gave birth two years ago, but I am sure number 3 (whenever that will be, hopefully sooner than later) I would blog the same day!

    Again I am just thrilled for you and pray you get lots of sleep!

    Very exciting.

    One more question – did you purposefully want him born on the 22nd? I understand that the 22nd of each month has been difficult for you because of loosing Felicity on a 22nd. I just didn’t know if that was planned.

    Reply
  • 83. Pam  |  August 23, 2008 at 7:11 pm

    This may sound strange but I was on vacation with my family and every so often I would wonder about your upcoming delivery and would whisper a quick prayer for “The Pipers”.
    Now I’m back and couldn’t wait to see if there was any news. What a thrill! May the Lord bless the 4 of you!
    On a side note, I love reading about delivery stories. Yours sounds a lot like mine except that the nurse wasn’t quite so kind to my husband who was gearing up for a long day with a stack of pancakes while I, begging for an epidural (they couldn’t give it to me because my husband hadn’t completed certain release forms), tried to delay the birth of the twins! LOL

    Enjoy this most precious time!

    Hey Molly!!!
    Soooo happy for you guys. Great name too, so applicable to your lives right now, huh? (I looked it up in the dictionary…that gives me a 25 word vocabulary now).

    My most sincere congratulations to all of you. (I bet Orison is super stoked, too!!)

    Wow. Another baby. I just read your blog as well. Don’t know you personally, but I didn’t know you were pregnant! That’s so great . Blessings upon your family. I’m curious about the name.

    Molly! This is so exciting–what’s even better (for me, selfish side note here…it was a surprise! I didn’t know you were pregnant!) Wow–I am so happy for you and Abraham. What a blessing!

    Molly,

    Congratulations to you, Abraham and Orison on the birth of Morrow. We’re so glad to know that everything went smoothly for you. Olivia is in awe of Morrow and now after seeing his pictures is even more anxiously awaiting the birth of her little sister. Needless to say she is wishing she was in Orison’s position with a new baby at home right now!

    We can’t wait to see you all again and to meet him! God has certainly blessed you and your family. You’re in our thoughts and prayers. We love you!

I am so happy for you all and I absolutely cannot wait to meet him…please give me a call when things settle down, or let me know if there’s anything we can help with! I miss you!! Love, Kara (and Morgan and Selah, too!)
