Make-a-Memory #22

"Meet the new brother"

Owen Joshua arrived at 1:17 a.m. on December 22nd--narrowly missing being "on time" but we'll let that slide. ;o) He weighed 7 lbs 10 oz and was 20 1/4 inches long (I have to go back and check, but I think he is the "tallest" baby we've had). The sisters and brothers adore him, and we are hoping to leave the hospital by this evening or sooner and try to beat as much of this weather as we can. We are definitely counting our blessings this Christmas--five healthy kids!!! WOW!!!
(and yes, this day's original activity got usurped by life) ;o)

OK, This blessed event calls for a Lurker to come clean and send you a great big Congratulations! He is so precious and I'm thanking the Lord that you had him before Christmas. He will fit just perfect into your family and your hearts. What a joyous Christmas you shall have. I have enjoyed reading your blog and as an older woman I marvel at all that you accomplish with your family. You are truly a Proverbs 31 woman and Josh is a very blessed man. Merry Christmas to all of you!!! Carolyn H. (Kathy's Mom)
