Rigg Allen Chastain


Hello all.

I am tired. I didn't sleep well last night and was up with the sun this morning. The captain and I got to the hospital around 7:30 this morning.

Rigg arrived at 5:08 pm.

He was 21 1/2 inches long and weighed 8 lbs. 9 oz.

He is perfect. An answer to so many prayers. Our miracle baby.

Thank you to all who prayed. My delivery was pain free...just a little uncomfortable,but not painful! Praise Jesus!

I will have more later...but I am tired and I want to hold my baby!

Yay! He's beautiful, Cari. Really beautiful.

I'm planning to come over tomorrow to see you and Gretchen. (She just called me a while ago and said her water broke.) So, if you get this comment tonight, you can pray for her. :)

Congratulations, Cari! Rigg is absolutely handsome - I have never seen a newborn look the way he does. He doesn't have that generic baby-look. He is his own little man, isn't he?! What a beautiful boy. I am celebrating his life and the joy you and your husband must be experiencing right now, and praising God for a safe and healthy delivery. Please post more pictures! :)

I read your blog and pray since finding it several months ago. I am so thrilled for you both that God has blessed you with Rigg. I still pray for your loss of Caden because I know that will be with you but I know today your hearts are filled with joy and rightly so.
God bless Rigg and grant him a wonderful life.

Sallye said...

I hope and pray that when you bring up your blog and scroll down to the first two pictures of Rigg that you can see what I see. on the left two very good pictures of Rigg, on the right a picture of you and the captain above a picture of Caden Joelle.

Got to see all of your family at one time. What a blessing!!!!
