So, there was a reason Jared and Larissa missed his birthday celebration though they are in town this year. It has got to be the best reason ever!

This child we prayed for for so long was about to make his entrance! It was quite an adventure filled with twists and turns which culminated in a trip to the hospital on the 20th and an emergency c-section early on the 21st.
Not every gal gets a sister in the labor and delivery. These two ladies are such a blessing to our hearts and our family. Carrie, Josiah's wife, works as a nurse in the Mom and Baby ward of the hospital.

I was working away on family day prep and didn't catch photos as they came in. THIS is the first photo I saw of Noah. My response was "WHOSE baby is that with all that hair?" Followed quickly by, "That's OUR BABY, he has the Gherkin scowl!" After hearing his birth story, I think he is allowed as much scowl as he wants. I certainly wouldn't have been happy with the experience either.

Remember those early moments when it seemed almost inconceivable you could be a parent? BTW we found Jared watching his first Cowboy game with Noah.
