My cup runneth over...

My baby is here! Eli Patrick was born Tuesday, February 10 at 1:45 am. 7 lbs 4 oz (same weight of my other 2 kids...crazy) 20 1/2 inches long. The birth was a beautiful (yet painful...thanks Adam and Eve) experience. Eli is healthy, and so am I! We got home yesterday, and things are going smoothly.

Last night, while were were saying our prayers, Alex was holding Eli, and said "Dear Jesus, thank you so much for blessing our family with this precious baby." His little voice was so sincere, and me, Tadd, and my mom were crying before it was all over! He is so excited to have a brother!

Hadley loves her brother too, and wants to hold him all of the time. I feel so blessed to have three healthy children! Thanks for all of your prayers and support!

OH, that is the sweetest post and prayer I have ever read. I hope that Alex and Hadley continue to love little Eli all his life. Brothers are the best. I love my Jimmy brother more than I can even express...Thank GOD for little brothers!
