Papa the Farmer and I are delighted to announce that our family has gotten a little bigger…
Big World, meet our little Sweetie Pie!
There’s nothing better than a baby and we happen to think this baby is particularly wonderful! We are enjoying these days and just breathing in the sweetness.
She has wrapped everyone in the family around her little finger (especially her Papa)!
Her older siblings are delighted with her! A baby is the best gift you can give an older child. They all take ownership of her, even our 2 year old who proudly refers to our newest little one as “My Baby.” As in, “Mama, my baby crying,” or “Mama, me love my baby.”
It’s nice to be the fifth child in the family because there are just so very many people to love you.
One of the first things we did when the baby was born was introduce her to her host brothers and sisters in Eastern Europe. Here we all are on Skype, trying to show them a floppy little baby who is too little to hold her head up. We all laughed and laughed trying to hold her just right to show them her face. Even the other children at the orphanage (whose faces are blocked out for privacy reasons) enjoyed seeing our new baby on Skype.
Please pray for us as we raise this precious little one – and all our children – for God’s glory.
