has arrived!

While on Christmas break, I read the book One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voscamp.  A challenging and, at times, difficult book but beautiful with eye and heart opening truth.  I have started counting up my own 1,000 gifts thankfully received.

Meet gift #49


Codi Lynn.  6 pounds 15 ounces   20.5 inches tall


Mom and Dad are doing just fine too.

Baby was pretty tired out today, and so sweetly contented.


She did peak out to see who dropped a tear(of wonder) on her.  I saw those dark beautiful brown eyes…..


Look at that squinchy wrinkle, starting at the outer corner of one eye, crossing her nose and continuing to the other eye.


Calm, content, snuggly

We are awestruck.


We are happy, relieved, excited, and thankful!


We are so Blessed!
