Children are the most important possession parents are entrusted with”

"Being a father or a mother is not simply a matter of bringing children into the world. The capacity for generation, which is a share in the creative power of God, is meant to have a continuation. Parents are called to cooperate with the Holy Spirit in the development of their children into men and women who will be authentic Christians.
The parents are the first persons responsible for the education of their children, in human as well as in spiritual matters. They should be conscious of the extent of their responsibility. To fulfill it, they need prudence, understanding, a capacity to love and a concern for giving good example."

Thats a lot of pressure if you ask me!!

New Baby!

Yep! We have a new baby! He is perfect in every way! God blessed us with little Jonah on July 6, at 1157am. Everything went well, we are all home and happy and healthy...well Caleb is starting to get a little jealous...but other than that!
Even though it has not been that long I forgot how little they are, and their sweet little noises, and precious cuddles...mmmm
But I also love Caleb's big boy laughs, little feet running around our house, playing chase, swimming in the pool, and watching him sign to me.
Life is busy! It is quite an adjustment...I am still working on it. What to do with Caleb while I nurse far the "baby jail" is working ok, and he is watching a lot more veggie tales...I feel bad, but don't really have much of choice (unless someone out there has suggestions!!!). I am trying to give Caleb special attention while Jonah is sleeping -- reading lots of books, playing in the backyard, etc...
I enjoyed having my mom here for a week! It was so nice to sleep in (she would watch C), have meals cooked and cleaned for me, and be spoiled in general...moms are so wonderful, and I am pretty sure I have the best! I had a little bit of a break down when she left yesterday, but I know that God will provide!
Courtney, Matthew, and Liam are coming into town this weekend! WOHOO! Plus, Caleb loves his cousin so that will be good for him!


compare that to C's first bath




ps- today was Jonah's due date!
