Welcome to our world

We've been quite busy these past few days.
You see, we have a new member of our family.
Meet Nate
He is awesome.

From the moment I saw him, I felt my heart expand.

I have been blessed to be invited
into the delivery room of all three 
births of my grandchildren.
I will never be the same because of it.  
Thank you so much Chris and Elizabeth for 
sharing these special moments with me.
What a miracle.
I am forever grateful.

This is my daughter literally minutes before Nate was born. 
I think she pushed twice.
To see your child that you gave birth to giving birth is very surreal. You want to bear the pain for her all while knowing this is her journey she must experience.  
This momma is so thankful the Lord in His mercy chose to bless her with such an easy delivery.

This was taken within the hour after he was born.
She amazes me!
I mean, she still has on lip gloss!!

Daddy and his son.

Big sisters meeting their little brother.

She is tickled to death with her little bro.

...and so is little big sis.

More giggles...

Pure sweetness.
This melts my heart.

Here comes the grandpas!
I love that I captured Paw Paw Nick's excitement...
After 3 daughters and two granddaughters, he is about to meet his first grandson!

This is what love looks like.

Honey and Paw Paw

I'm in love.

..I think Paw Paw is too.

So glad this is my grandchildren's other grandma.
Things get crazy when Honey and JuJu get together.
Crazy in a good way :)
She is a blessing.

The proud men in the family with their celebratory cigars.

The happy aunts. 
They love their seester and her incredibly cute offspring!



Daddy's side of the family...

Momma's side of the family

A little more sister lovin'
Poor Nate. You are gonna have to get used to these girls!
 In the words of your father...
"Just strap on your seatbelt and enjoy the ride"....

Welcome to our world Nate!!
We hope you love us as much as we love you!

    and the sibling pics.

    mama's generation.
    and baby's too.

    and your daughter looks incredibly amazing after giving birth. lip gloss!?! amazing :)

  13. Found you through Instagram. I must say we have such similar stories :) I am 24 years old, my husband and I got married when I was 20 and a few months later had our first baby girl. Now we are going on 4 years of marriage and I'm about to have your 3rd baby GIRL. See what I mean, just a few years behind ya! ;-)
    Anyways, I wondered what advice you would give to me, a young mom who loves Jesus. I want a unique godly marriage and want to raise my girls to serve the Lord, thats it. I know I don't know you personally, and I can't see how you live out your life but I think I have a good feeling of how. :) You can email me if you'd like. It would honestly mean so much to me! :) So nice meeting you.

  14. I'm here almost a year later and I still feel the excitement of that moment.
    You and your family are beautiful. Just beautiful.

    My daddy had two daughters and two granddaughters before my son, Jacob, was born. Nothing like new baby goodness! Ava is 3 weeks and we're eating it up.
