Look what my sweet hubby brought home...


It's little peanut! We have "named" him Jonah. He is beautiful...Sweet... And he loves to cuddle! What more could you ask for?

As usual, the girls are in love and are already asking if he can stay forever. Hillary Ashton told me that she has always wanted "three browns" in our family. Ha.


He is tiny. Little bitty....over two pounds lighter than Hillary Ashton was when she was born. Luckily, he is a great eater and I am hoping he will gain some lbs soon.

Julianne was already in bed when baby Jonah got home Saturday evening and she slept in Sunday morning. Jonah and the two big girls were dressed for church and downstairs having breakfast before Julianne woke up. After she got ready, I took her downstairs and the other kids were already in the car waiting for us. Julianne's carseat is right next to baby Jonah's. I wish I would have had my camera ready when she looked over and saw a baby in the carseat next to her. She was definitely shocked and her expression was priceless! She just kept looking at us and then looking back at him. You could tell she really wanted to make sure we knew there was an extra kid in the car. It was so funny!

He has done great so far. He sleeps really well...during the day. So far, he hasn't seen the need of sleeping AT ALL during the night, but we are working on that. There is something about a dark, quite house that makes him want to play. I have tried my best to keep him awake more today so we will see how tonight goes. I am hoping good because I am tired!

We are taking him this week for some more tests. Please pray that everything comes back normal. Will you also please join me in praying for his future family? My prayer is that he will be adopted by a sweet, loving Christan family that will love him to pieces!
