Here, friends, is the true reason for the recent dearth of postage on the MonT-SteR REPORT. I am a daddy all over again.
Our second son, Mark Christian Monti was born on Wednesday, April 16, 2008 at 8:11 a.m. He weighed 8 lbs. 7 oz. and measured 21 in. long at birth.
Christi was nothing short of magnificent. Due to some complications, our first son (Robert) was born by c-section. Christi’s goal was to deliver Mark naturally, but finding an OB/GYN practice that would allow a VBAC (Vaginal Birth After Caesarean) was tough. We eventually found one, and although they labeled Christi’s pregnancy high-risk from the start (and made no pretense about their skepticism with regard to Christi’s ability to deliver Mark naturally), she never wavered. Her labor was very intense and painful due to the fact that she had both back and front labor, but she persevered.
I married an amazing woman. And now we have an amazing family of four. I have two, count ’em, TWO sons, and I couldn’t be happier.
Thank you, Jesus, for showing your grace and faithfulness to our family again.
