Remembering When...

Since our friends Ryan and Sarah are having their baby now (exciting exciting!!) we've been getting news throughout the day of how things are progressing. It's made me think alot about the end of my pregnancy with Josiah and the excitement and nervousness of labor and delivery.

It's truly amazing that at the end of the whole process you come out with this beautiful baby that the Lord created to be in His image and for you and your spouse to love and cherish and raise. I know our friends will be terrific parents and I can't wait to meet their little boy. I can't wait to hug them and congratulate them on the birth and the heroic process of coming through it all.

Here are a few pictures that I was looking at in my nostalgia ;-)

Joey in the oven.

It's hard to even believe that he was this small!

This was Matt's favorite wee baby gown (above). We just passed it on to Ryan and Sarah a few days ago! Hopefully it will bring them lots of happy memories/pictures too ;-)

I know I say it all the time...but in a blink, it was just a blink, and we were here:

I know this time next year, I won't even be able to believe how much he will have grown.

Thanks so much for all of your love and support! I am happy to report that baby Ethan sleeps so much sweeter when he's in Joey's Sleep-a-saurus gown! Combine that with the bouncy chair, and you've got yourself a nighttime jackpot! ;) A somewhat well-rested Mommy and Daddy send you a thousand thank yous!
