It is with great joy I can announce that yesterday my wife gave birth to our 4th child – a beautiful, healthy, 9lb, 8oz, 22-inch girl named Lydia. We are all overjoyed and so thankful for God’s goodness.
My other three kids cannot get enough of her. My three-year-old son announced to me yesterday, “I not a baby.” He seems to feel that he’s moved up in rank now that he’s not the youngest anymore. My older daughter (6) can’t wait to play “dress up” with her. Rebekah (my wife) is doing great and feeling as good as one can after giving birth to a 9.5-pound baby.
Thank you to everyone who was praying for us and thinking about us. Our lives will never be the same again.
