Our newest addition!

Hi Family and Friends,
The Rodriguez Family just gave birth to their newest addition to our little tribe... At 3:39 pm 6/17/09 to a
A beautiful bouncing baby BOY.

That is 4 mighty Knights of Valor and 1 Princess for the count. After many hours of labor, Our newest little manchild/arrow of our Quiver, joined us via waterbirth peacefully in our very own home.

We had an amazing midwife (Geeta) (from the Living Well Clinic) and our very own wonderful Brenda that was the nurse assistant. ( Her sister came all the way down from Long Beach to be our own personal phelmbotomist. THANK you! They were incredible and very patient. A special thanks to Le Leche League Leader and Doula Sue Christy for watching our children during the birth.

Hezekiah Lysias Rodriguez weighs 8 lb 11 oz (tiny for our family)
Hezekiah (nicknamed Hezeki) means The Lord is my Might and Strength. Also means He is the might and Strength of the Lord. Lysias means- One who has the power to set free. We pray that this little one will be used mightily by the Lord and that he will be used by God to set people free from bondage and sin into new life in Christ Jesus! I didn't feel ready to have this little guy, but he is a welcome addition. He is born the same day as Josiah, different month... the 17th. I thought it was so neat that his cord blood may be used to heal Josiah and he is born on the same day. Bless you all, THANK you all. Now a very exhausted mama and daddy are off to bed.
