Baby Andrew is here!

Good morning!  Hope you are having a great week.  The stork finally arrived with Baby Andrew this past Saturday evening after a pretty rough flight. We praise God for His hand upon the entire event and for blessing Valerie and George with their precious baby boy.  Valerie had to have an emergency C-Section because her contractions were far too long and far too strong & were causing the baby a great deal of stress.   Thank God that everything turned out fine.  She is feeling great, Andrew is eating well and they are hoping to be going home later on today.


Andrew looks just like his father!  He was very much awake and hungry.


I am one happy Grandma!  Madison Rose is already 4 months old.  She looks like a giant next to Andrew.


She tried to touch him.  It was so cute!


Steve and I started with just two children.  Two decades later this became 6 and two years after that we're up to 8!  It's like rabbits!!!


As you can see this post is not about scrapbooking or techniques, it's about the memories and photos that are going to fill my pages for many years to come.  We came to realize after this scare how fragile life is and how everything can turn within minutes.  The most important things in life are not things, but the love we give to and receive from our families, friends and all those God sends our way.  Have a great, happy and blessed day!
