Meet Riley!

new born baby

baby one day old

 Our 5th grandchild, we are so blessed.

Riley, born January 19th on our daughter's birthday on a warm, winter's day.  You see, we were just sitting around on a Saturday doing a little yard work, resting by the fountain. Our son called and announced, "Four centimeters." We thought it would take pretty much all day but shortly the whole birthing experience moved up to seven centimeters and we were on our way to the nearby hospital, just a 15 min. drive. We've done this before... wonderful midwife, modern facilities, everyone remember to breathe and bask in the love and grace of God. You're about to experience a miracle!

So, here he is... sweet baby at:

7 lbs. 10 oz.

20 inches
