Our family grows with love...

Joyfully Introducing

Alexander Elliot Meade
Born Wednesday, October 10, 2007 at 12:55 pm
Weighing 8 pounds, 11 ounces
Stretching out to 21 and 3/4 inches in length
Welcomed and treasured by Mama, Daddy, and Libby

This is the first time the 4 of us got together for a family photo. Poor Xander is hidden by mama's hand, Libby smiles at a loved one to the side, daddy looks handsome and proud, and mama looks tired and swollen (but give me a break, i had just had a baby the day before!).

We are so thankful to the Lord for adding to us a sweet baby boy. We came home with him yesterday afternoon and have so enjoyed getting to know him and learning to care for a little brother and a second child. Libby adores Xander and is so eager to help with him, console him "it's okay baby xander, don't cry...", bring him soft cuddlies to love, and rattles "so he can chew on it and maybe that will make him feel better" and sweet rubs and pats and kisses. As for mama and daddy, we are truly delighted to be blessed with another baby to raise for the Lord. Please pray for us as we care for him, and join us in praising the Lord for his amazing creation.
