Louis is here...

"I will praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are your works, and my soul knows very well."~ Psalm 139:14






There are seasons in life. Lately it has been one of watching my family and friends blossom, new life, freshness, and promise. Three weeks after the birth of baby James my other brother and his wife gave birth to their first son Louis. Here he is only one day old. Such a lucky Aunt I am. He is beautiful of course. I loved holding him and I melted a little when I saw him in the same little gown I put Juden in, just a few days old. We thank God for his safe arrival after having a difficult time making his entrance. It's amazing what are bodies can do. Good work Aimee! Welcome to the world little man.

"One look at a baby's fingers and you just know that those little bundles of flesh and tiny bones are more sacred and spiritual, than any idea or theology... There are glimpses and whispers of the divine all through the daily, if we let ourselves look again, if we let ourselves believe that the world all around us is threaded through with divinity." ~ Niequist~

I know Anna, these things make the distance hard. It was so amazing to see him and see little things from both Aimee and Scott. Aimee was passing around baby pictures of Jon, Pete and her and there was definitely a resemblance.

i love looking at these pictures again, anticipating our own birth, and reading about the bond between your family. i pray that my children will continue to develop a similar bond and will relish in this season of their own lives.
