First Week at Home with Sam

God is so good. I looked back at the pictures from Sam's birth the other day as I was listening to a station on Pandora called "Hymns for Worship." What should come on but "How Great Thou Art". I was overwhelmed again at just how great God is. He is the Ultimate Creator. I am amazed at His power. Look at what He created!

I've also been amazed at His sufficiency this week, as our family has adjusted to a new little one and as I have adjusted to being sleep deprived again. :) God has sent help when it has been needed, delicious meals and gifts and encouragement at just the right times. He knows all of our needs and is always faithful to provide for those needs.

We celebrated Brian's birthday on Tuesday night with gifts from the girls that they had chosen themselves and wrapped in paper that they decorated themselves. It was so sweet! We love Daddy!!

The girls are loving their baby brother Sam. Even Rosemary! She finally got the opportunity to "hold" him the other day and she just hugged all over him. It was the sweetest thing.

Our car is getting crowded than ever. We now have no extra seats for friends to ride with us. :) Looking at a bus or 15 passenger van may be in our future. . . :)

We can't wait for Big Sister Allie to come home and complete our family.


  1. Loving the pictures and so thankful the first week went well despite sleep deprivation. Happy Birthday to Brian also!

  2. Time to update those pictures at the top of the page!
