Worth the Wait!


Our precious 4th Little Mister is here...and of course, worth every bit of the wait and worth every ounce of effort it took to bring all 10 pounds, 1 ounce of him here! Yep. He is the new record-holder. 10 pounds, 1 ounce. 21 1/2 inches. 15 1/2 inch head and 15 1/2 inch chest. He is like a little sausage...and a very cute one at that. We love him so much and we're so happy. The birth was completely different in so many ways from what we have experienced and from what we expected. Lots of life lessons here...the biggest of which is, "I can do all things through Him who gives me strength."

YEAH! Way to go, girl! I can't believe how chubby his cheeks are already! And it's a good thing I made his hat big...really big...sheesh. I love how he fills up those jammies already!

It's so good to see you both doing so well! Thank you Lord!

What a big, cute, little man! (Because babies can be big and little at the same time.)
