A New Day..
It's a new day. By day I mean season, and by season I mean a new time in our lives. We are now the parents of 3 little girls and 1 new baby boy. Judah Gabriel was born July 8, 2009 at 11:41am. He weighed 7lbs. 13oz. and was 20 1/2 inches long. Believe it or not I was able to keep the secret from Jeremy and the girls my whole pregnancy and seeing their surprise at having a little boy in the house was worth the stress of secret keeping. Judah is doing wonderfully and the girls have been amazing in their adjustment. They love to hold him and talk to him, but they are not in his face and overwhelming him (or mama :)). He is a cuddly little guy and I love it! If he is to be our last baby then I plan to relish every single moment of his babyhood. I always love this time anyway, a little one fresh from God reminding me at every moment the miracle that life is. I have been observing him and the girls, enjoying their ages, loving each place that they are, amazed that God gave us these precious gifts. Hmm. How thankful I am. My heart is that each one would know their Heavenly Papa through the love of their earthly Daddy and Momma. That I would see each one for who they are, recognizing their individuality and raising them in the purposes of the Father.. How very, very precious they are.
