Joy in the midst of troubles!

Matthew Jay
7# 15oz
19 3/4" long

We have a brand new grandson!
Our oldest daughter Giselle and her husband Jon had their 2nd baby yesterday morning.

They chose to have a home birth with a midwife assisting.
I am all for home births...except when it comes to my own flesh and blood having one!
Then I am as nervous as a cat....!!!

Praise God all went well, with a quick, but HARD labor.
She had been having contractions for several days which really helped move things along when the actual labor began.
In less than 5 hours baby was born!

Proud as punch papa, Jon.
We are so very grateful Giselle has an amazing godly husband who has made an amazing godly father.
We know she is in the best of hands, and we love Jon to pieces.

 Trena is so excited to be able to finally meet and get to hold her new baby brother!
9 months is a very long time to wait when you are nearly 3 years old...
Don't you just love the look on Trena's dang cute in her pajamas!

 Pete and I are doing OK.
We really appreciate the support and offers of help that have come in via the blog and Facebook.
We are looking for steady employment...
full time for him...
part time for me.

I will be flying out to Montana (courtesy of Giselle and Jon) in the next couple of weeks to spend time with Giselle and her family so anything I might find work related will have to wait till I get some one on one with them!

In Christ alone,

Pin It!
