Weeks [1&2]


 When a woman is giving birth, she has sorrow because her hour has come, but when she has delivered the baby, she no longer remembers the anguish, for joy that a human being has been born into the world. –John 16:21

Time has been flying by.  This little one is already a bit over two weeks old.  I have adjusted my schedule from one that consisted of night time and day- to one that is 24 hours long.  He has been teaching us what he needs, and we have been trying to make his life comfortable and happy as we grow together.  From the day he was born he has seemed to know Joshua’s voice, and we are so very grateful to be his family.

Week 1

Dear David Francis,

This week your dad, grandma, and I were amazed at how incredibly sweet and alert you are.  We brought you home on a Wednesday, and it took me a while to realize that maybe you were so comfortable in our little home because you had lived here inside of me for a few months; it’s creaks and smells were already familiar. You like to break free from your swaddle- no matter how clever we get with it and you like to let us hold you and comfort you.

We love you,


Week 2

Dear David Francis,

You are doing such a good job growing big and tall.  This week you let us swaddle you more and you learned some new tricks. You like having your hands free and are good at leaving a trail of mittens (sock-puppets) in your wake.  Your nickname this past week was Bop as you let us know what you are needing by bopping around.  Grandpa came to town, he was missing Grandma, and we celebrated your first Thanksgiving together.  We are all smitten.
