This is Beth~Heathers sister-in-law posting for her.

Baby surprised us all and decided that he could not wait for his Daddy to come home. Phillip was moved to tears that he could not be with Heather while she was having baby but was praying for Heather and baby all day long. Phillip was preaching when baby decided to come. So Heather got to talk to him after she had baby. Her Mama, Sister(Laura)and Sherry Patton was with her for the delivery. I'm sorry I don't have any picture to put up. As soon as we can, we will get some pictures up. They say the baby is beautiful. (OF COURSE :-))

Elijah Phillip Dickinson was born May 14, 2008 at 9:07pm. 8lbs 3oz, 20.5 inch long

Congrats!!!!!! What joy and relief you are probably feeling! Like everyone else, I am sorry that Phillip wasn't there to share the experience with you but it sounds like you were in close contact with him. Too bad he couldn't be on the phone during delivery! At least he will be there for all the other special moments in Elijah's little life! Congrats and happy snuggling that little man!!! :)

I tend to be a little sentimental and my eyes had tears when I read Phillip was not there for the birth of his son. I am sure God was with you and helped you through this. He is beautiful baby, I am glad for your sake he not as big as you though he could be. You are in my prayers.
