Those who plant in tears will harvest SHOUTS OF JOY. They weep as they plant their seed, but they sing as they return with the HARVEST.

4 weeks Old

This cute little outfit that Uriah is wearing was given to us by a sweet lady who I met through blogging. Thank you Sally I couldn't wait to put him in it and he looks so cute. I met Sally after i lost Elias. She has been a faithful reader and I have felt her prayers through out this journey. I pray that someday the Lord will let me meet this new found sister of mine, she truly has been a blessing even though we have never met. So Sally this picture is for you and again thanks for the cute outfit.
Here is a picture of Uriah when he is 3 weeks old. I just love babies when they are only in their diapers.

Uriah was sound asleep but I had to have his picture taken because he looks so peaceful. He is now 4 weeks old and is growing faster than mommy would like him too. we weighed him today and he weighs 11 lbs even. I just can't believe how big he is getting. I still can't get over the fact that the Lord has blessed us with 8 healthy children. I love all of them and am very grateful for this life I live. Yes it is noisy at times ( well all the time) but is worth it. I couldn't imagine my life any other way. Thank you lord for blessing us the way you have I am humbled that you have chosen us to raise these children for you. Praying we keep our eyes lifted up during this season of our life.

I decided I should post and come out of hiding. It has been an interesting first few weeks. Uriah has been a joy and a delight. The rest of the family has had a very bad case of the flu. Which has been difficult on all of us. Daddy was a huge help and we could have never made it through this with out him. This week we will be getting rid of junk and trying to get the house ready to put on the market. So I am sharing a few pictures of these last two weeks. This first one is when Uriah was just a few days old.
Daddy took the kids to the children's museum one day and this is how my daughter looked when she came home. She created this master piece all by herself.
The boys. Never thought I would be saying this but it sure sounds good.

Uriah Beau

Here is our little Uriah Beau. I figured I should get some pictures up but wanted to enjoy those first few days doing nothing but holding my son, so that's what I did. It has been great how much everyone has helped out and let mommy rest and enjoy Uriah. I have enjoyed these last few days laying in bed and taking in this newest addition. Just last night after his 4:00a.m. feeding I caught myself just staring at him when I should have been sleeping. He is a very mellow baby and very cuddly. Here are two pictures. More to come after a while. For now I am going to enjoy some more time resting and getting to know this little one. Thank you everyone for all your prayers along the way they have been felt and cherished.

A Blessed Event...

This is a friend posting for Susan since she's awful tired after being awake all night...


Uriah Beau joined their family after a tiring night of labor. He made his appearance to his family at 8:05am this morning, weighing in at 9 pounds even, 20.5 inches long.

Susan is doing well, tired when I talked with her this morning, but very happy it's over and she has a beautiful baby boy to hold.

She will post pictures when she is up and about, but midwife's orders first - one week of good rest.

Still Waiting

We are still waiting for our little bundle to arrive. I have never gone this far over so I am beginning to get impatient. I am now 4 days over but who's counting.

I saw the midwife yesterday and everything looks great. Now we just wait for the big day. So everyone who is praying for us thank you and keep praying.
Hopefully I will be posting soon about our newest member.
