Happy 2nd Birthday, Zeke!

Our big guy, Zeke, turned two years old in November, and he requested a cowboy birthday party. It is bittersweet to realize he is now big enough to have his own ideas about what his party should be. We tell the boys that they'll always be our babies even when they're both a big daddy someday. They think that's pretty funny and usually giggle while asking us to hold them like babies. ;)

Best buddies, Ezra and Zeke :)

Our baby girl is here!

Our precious little Eva Faith arrived on July 30th, 2013 a few minutes before midnight. The tiniest baby we've had so far, she weighed a mere 7 lbs 9 oz. We kept commenting what a little peanut she was, and both her doctor and nurses assured us that Eva was plenty big. Our two big guys just made her seem like such a tiny girl! We are so thankful and praise God for her safe delivery. We know from the hardships and losses experienced by others that a healthy baby is a miracle, and we never want to take one for granted.
Children's children are the crown of old men; and the glory of children are their fathers. Proverbs 17:6
