Welcome Sweet Gentry
My sweet friend, Karyn delivered Gentry Nelson Braaten yesterday morning. He's got such a sweet little face, I haven't gotten to meet him quite yet. He's been having a tough time getting the breathing thing going on his own, and been in NICU with his daddy and nurses watching carefully over his and getting his little body up to speed with this new world.
All of this makes me so greatful for modern technology, great doctors and nurses hard at work. More than once I've seen lives saved in the delivery process by medical staff or fast thinking midwives. I'm grateful for our modern techonology, and for the hard work & tender care of these folks. God was so good to give humans medicine.
All that aside, I'm so excited to meet this sweet little boy and smell him and hold him and kiss him and smell him....oh, I just love, love babies. Karyn and Kelly are incredible parents, and I just know God has big plans for this tiny little man.
Welcome, Sweet Gentry. We're so glad you're here!
