Great Quote

No, please don't think I'm spending any time reading these days. The closest I get to reading is my mail. Anyway, I read this book awhile ago and just came across this line again. It's really challenging the way I think.

“We fear so deeply what we think other people see in us, so we talk in order to straighten out their understanding…one of the fruits of silence is the freedom to let our justification rest entirely with God.”
- Richard Foster, Celebration of Discipline

A week of firsts

Here are some pictures from the 1st 2 weeks of Charlottes life. She's a very good baby. She's eating well and sleeping well, what more can you ask from a newborn?

I don't know what I've done to deserve this. I have a 4 year old, 2 year old and a 7 day old and all of them are sleeping at the same time right now. I'm looking at that last sentence wondering what in the world I'm doing on the computer...I'm going to take a nap!!!!!!!
see ya...

Miss Charlotte Ruth

Well, here she is. We're sorry it's taken so long to get pictures out. There just seems to be no extra time lying around anymore...hmmmm, I wonder why?!?
Charlotte was born on May 2nd at 1:49pm. She was 8lbs 11oz and 3 weeks early. We think she's tiny compared to the boys, although some think she's a big girl. She is named for her great great grandma Charlotte and her great grandma, grandma and aunt all have the middle name of Ruth...not to mention a very faithful woman in the bible.
Brennan and Calvin love her and it's been so fun to watch them take such a genuine interest in her. I do think one of the best gifts we can give our kids is a sibling to love and be loved by.
Enjoy our sweet girl and we promise to do better at posting pictures and writing about her and her brothers. You can also check out Tyler's blog for more
