    The house is relatively quiet with several of the children taking naps and Elijah sleeping on my lap.

    Life certainly has been interesting these days. Elijah is slowly leaving his baby newborn stage, which almost makes me sad, yet it’s such a blessing to see him healthy and growing! He certainly is a plump little one now and still has his mop of dark brown hair. We thoroughly enjoy his sweet smiles as well as the cooing he just started with.

    Picture this, its Tuesday evening about 8:45 when Gloria told me, “Daniel I started labor.” I was like, “You are kidding me!” I was excited to go to bed early and get a good night’s rest.

    I had this idea that I would like to be rested up when our brand new bundle arrives. But guess what, God had a better idea. Soon the house was full of excitement. We told the children the way it looks we would probably have our baby the next day some time.
