It was about 6:15 when she had the baby. It was a little boy. He was so adorable! We named him "Christian Covenant Kruse".
All five of us older kids were there, at the hospital. So we were able to all hold him. What a precious little boy he was... he had the cutest little nose! And his mouth was so adorable... his hands and feet were so perfect... he was just the most beautiful little boy! As I looked into his small fragile face, I began to understand why God wanted to use little Christian, to advance His kingdom. By using such a small child, He showed how great and mighty He really is.
Christian weighed about 5 pounds.. but, since there was a knot in the cord, he might not have been nourished, so he could have weighed more. Also, my mom wasn't really due till a couple more weeks.
We got out of the hospital at about 11:45 pm; got home at about 12:30 am; and I got to bed at about 1:15am. It was a long day... but, I wouldn't have wanted to miss a minute from it!
[note: We are planning on having Christians funeral on Saturday. Please email me, or leave a comment, if you would want to come, and I shall try and get back with you.]
