Welcome New Babies - Nathan & Elim! 
April 2017

 Back to Home Page

We were overjoyed to welcome not one, but two new baby boys to our circle of 'honorary nephews' this month.  We give thanks for both boys arriving in good health with both mom's doing just fine as well.  This page is my own personal, "Welcome!" to these sweet boys.   

Baby Nathan

Born at 4:11pm April 17, 2017, 9 pounds 10 ounces, 21 inches long.

Our good friends Rusty and Cody were blessed with this beautiful boy this month. 
Baby Nathan is the answer to many, many prayers.  He has top-notch care from
his pediatric nurse mother, to his EMT/fireman dad, to the very protective dogs 
who consider him their percious little brother. He is very well looked after! 
Here he is, fresh out of the oven!  Does this look like a safe place to be or what?! 
Hank the cow dog has his own little one to guard and protect now. Look at those cheeks! 

 It was sweet of Cody to include the quilt I made for Natan in this adorable shot

   The new king of the household with his court in attendance. So cute!!

Baby Elim

Born at 10:30 am April 29th, 7.3 pounds, 22 inches

Our good friends David & Rayleigh came back from China so that we
could all enjoy the birth of baby Elim.  He was born in a thunderstorm
that knocked out the power in the hospital.  On generators, everything
worked except the A/C, so it was a hot experience for everyone, but safe!
