Welcome Baby!

After praying and waiting, we finally have met the new member of the family! And he is such a blessing!!! Baby Jimmy was born on August 19th at 8:02am. After a surprisingly long labor, he was born weighing in at 7lbs and 9ozs and measuring 20.5 inches!

We are happy to be at home and getting back to our routines. I'm thankful for my mom who was such an immense help for 2 weeks. I miss her so much!! It was also good to see my sister, niece, and nephew. I'm glad we had an opportunity to have family around during this time.

Recovery is going well and we have since started back up with our daily school routine. Things are going nicely and it feels good to be back on schedule. As for baby Jimmy, he's a blessing and then some! We have him set up in a bassinet in our school room during the day and it's nice to look over and just watch him sleep. It's like he's always been a part of our family! God is so good!


Just a few minutes old.

Congratulations!! What a lovely little one. I'm still waiting for mine to come in october :-) Glad to hear the return to the school routine was a good thing. I'm worried about how we're going to integrate another baby into things.
