Gifts from God

* 8 lb and 6 oz of precious baby boy.

* 4 year old big sister singing "O Gladsome Light" to her baby brother.

* 8 year old Little Builder, who had once said "I'm not happy about this" when he found out I was pregnant, holding his little brother and saying "I'm thankful he was born."

* meals from family and friends to make our evenings easier.

* dappled light gently shining on my orange rocking/nursing chair.

* colored leaves, a beautiful view outside for someone who is confined inside for awhile.

* healing, rest, love.


  1. Many years to your sweet baby boy and your family! I hope that you are resting and recovering well. Yay babies!

  2. Yay! Congratulations and many years!!

  3. Congratulations and many years! Very happy for your family.

  4. Whohooooooooooooooo! I'm so excited for you! Many Years to the new little one, welcome to the world, we are happy to have you here!

  5. CONGRATULATIONS! I know you don't usually do photos online, but if you wouldn't mind sending some to an old friend, I would love that! ;-)

    My favorite part of this year has been watching our 8-year-old fall in love with his baby brother. Right now, he's pushing Bogdan around our apartment in Raia's doll stroller.
