family, Me

I’m thrilled to introduce you to the newest member of our family, Baby Cameron born on December 8th.

Each time I look at him, nurse him, change his diaper, I reflect on the honor it is to be a co-creator with God.

When I see this photo, tears swell in my eyes. I’m humbled that these precious souls are in my care.
My husband, the football coach, also proved to be an excellent birthing coach (minus the loud whistle and megaphone mouth). He was gentle, soothing, and knew just the right words to comfort me during labor.
When I announced Cameron’s arrival and shared photos with family and friends, I got numerous compliments on my appearance after giving birth. This photo was taken less than 24 hours after labor. The only explanation I have is that a light is shining on the inside of me…apparently it is radiating on the outside, too.
The most common question I get now is if we plan to have more children. Only God knows, but in my heart I feel my family is complete. This will be an unforgettable holiday season…Happy Holidays from our family to yours. With Love.

    Dayka sent me over and how thrilled am I to meet your lovely family. How wonderful they look.
    Our twins will turn 20 in February and I cannot imagine life without them. Their sister too, loves having big brothers. I am from a large family, one of seven and I think being a Mom helps to make us better at everything. Learning so much each day from them.
    Congratulations to you.
