may I introduce...


Zeb Anselmo Gough
May 3, 2012
5lbs 10oz 18.75 inches

Sorry to leave you all a bit hanging there. I had such plans to write a last post before this little guy arrived. As my luck would have in a last minute turn of events I was whisked away for an emergency c-section on Thursday night instead of the scheduled one we had for Friday.

The moment they pulled him up but behind the curtain I could hear a tiny little mousy cry. A huge grin took over my husbands face. The doctor had to nudge Chris to announce the gender but when I saw his face I just knew and burst into sobs of joy for our little boy!!! God had prepared my heart so deeply for a third son and I could not be more proud of the beautiful family He has blessed us with.

We are doing wonderfully after a rough 48 hours and Zeb has passed all the preemie tests with flying colors. If all continues to go well we hope to return home tomorrow. After twelve days I am so ready to get my little family reunited.

I will be back soon with many more details and the story of how we found his name. It actually took us by surprise and we feel God gave it to us, it fits him perfectly!

Thank you to everyone for your amazing love, support, prayers, emails, visits, text message I could not feel more blessed! xoxo

ps. Zeb looks a bit like his big sister Josie no? Her newborn photo HERE.

  13. We all can't wait to see Zeb again soon--Evan and Miles have both been talking about him a ton; such proud and happy cousins they are! :) We love this little guy so much already, and what a joy it is to take in his newborn features--you're right, he does look so much like his siblings in different ways, but he has his own look, too. We continue to give thanks for his strong, healthy body, and yours, too, Rebekah! God is so good, and I am looking forward to you sharing more of your story and your thoughts and reflections here in the coming days. I am praying for you as you all transition into life at home as a beautiful family of six!! xoxo

  33. Congratulations!!!! What a cutie!! He looks so healthy and happy. Sorry about your pre-term labor scare, but it sounds like your doctors took excellent care of you and handled the situation brilliantly. As a NICU survivor, I have come to appreciate OBs that take immediate action. :)

  35. I've been reading through your posts on baby 4. I had my fourth baby in Feb 2011 and found myself stuck on unexpected bed rest too. She came at 34 weeks but did great. Anyways, I could really relate and it kept me reading. I am so glad you have a healthy baby now. I love reading!
