Elliot Michael Fennema

At 6:39 pm, Elliot Michael Fennema was born!  Mother and baby are doing wonderful.  Stephanie is actually breast-feeding him as a type.  It is beautiful.  She had to have a C-section because Elliot was facing up instead of down and was causing momma a lot of pain.  All is well, and we are exhausted.

I was able to see God’s blessing today, and his name is Elliot.  God gave Stephanie more strength than I thought was humanly possible.  She was amazing.  I will say it over and over.  She is going to be an amazing mother to Elliot.

  8. I can’t get over the similarities between emelyn and elliot’s births….both born two days before their due dates, via c-section in the evening hours, after moms labored for hours, similar weights and heights…it’s pretty amazing. It will be fun watching him grow up, even if we have to do it via pictures (sadness). Congratulations you two! What a precious little guy. And Steph – you made it! I’m proud of you.

  9. Dear Steph and Mike–Congrats!!!! I don’t know if you remember me Mike, but I’m Kelly Johnson’s mom….. I am thanking God for His mercy and kindness to you both!! I recently came upon your blog by link of Kelly’s!! And I am praising God today for His grace and mercy towards your precious family. God is faithful and loving and true.. Our Owen is beautiful also
    just like your Elliot. God is good all the time!! In Jesus, Marlene

  10. Congrats to both of you! You know, not all babies are cute (except to their parents), but Elliot IS. What a treasure. I am really happy for both of you. As people have told me, I’ll tell you… it just keeps getting better from here.

  11. YEAH!!! I’m so excited for y’all! Welcome little Elliot…it’s been a long time coming!

    Steph and Mike – hold on to your hats! Life will never be the same!

    Elliot is ABSOLUTELY ADORABLE! I know that y’all had Elliot’s wife picked out and all (Miss Emelyn), but I would like to throw Miss Julianna’s hat in the ring now that I see that Mr. Elliot has turned out to be such a looker! 🙂

    I can’t wait to see the little mister in person! 🙂
