I haven’t posted anything for a while, not because there was a lack of blog-worthy material, but just because life got so darn busy. That’s it. No excuses.
Now for the BIG NEWS . . .
We have a brand new granddaughter in our family! Little Adelaide Margaret was born at home last week, with daddy and the midwife in attendance. She weighed in at 8lb 4oz and is #8 in the birth order of our “grands”. She’s perfect and beautiful and is a very special little girl after six boys in a row. Her almost-12-year-0ld cousin Emily is thrilled to finally have another female in the mix, and I have no doubt that Em and Addy will be great pals, despite the age difference. Look out, boys!
I could go on and on at this point, sermonizing about the miracle of life. Seems fitting, right? But all of us in this family are simply thankful to our Heavenly Father for Adelaide’s safe arrival, for a healthy mommy, and for the blessing this little one is to us.
