Have I mentioned we have a new son?

We have 1,654,987 pictures of Morgan.
We have 346,852 pictures of Paige.
and we have 4 pictures of John Martin. They’re not even in focus, but they do prove 4 points…

  • he’s loved
  • he’s fat
  • he’s happy
  • he looks like BOTH of his sisters

Once again {I sound like a broken record} thanks for all your encouragement yesterday! It’s always nice to know I’m not alone! I made his little “train” shirt and I’m working on the directions so you can make one too! It was very easy and took all of 15 minutes.

    Do you even realize how excited I am that you have a boy!!!! Now, I can actually attempt to make some boy things for Tripp. I love the train you made for John Martin. That would be so cute on a little shirt for Tripp! Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog and for all your prayers. We are doing much better. We know that this was just part of God’s plan for our lives. I don’t understand it, but I’m confident in our Savior that he knows what’s best. Yes, we do have a website for our bread company http://www.fullcupbread.com Note that it will be updated with a fresh new look soon, so please check back. I’ll be honest our shipping is a little expensive b/c it must be shipped overnight b/c we grind our wheat every morning and there are no preservatives. We have to do this to maintain the quality of the bread and it’s freshness. It’s so yummy and extremely good for you. I’m going to do a post soon on all the health benefits. Thanks for being interested!

    D – he’s too precious! And he does look like his sisters! I just read your post from yesterday and I’m right there with you. Why does it seem like when life gets crazy, God’s the first thing to go when it should be the exact opposite? Thanks for letting me know I’m not the only one trying to keep my head above water! Your babies are so blessed to have such an amazing momma!!

    Can’t get passed the”took all of 15 min.” I see you put buttons on it. That alone would take me forever! PRECIOUS little one! That 3rd is really hard to photograph. D.’s pictures are all in spurts it seems. You know, feel guilty and start taking lots of pictures and then there are months that pass with none at all. 🙂 Loved the pics!

    darby, kathy gannon here. I love stalking you. Your children are beautiful. I met Justin years ago when my boys-now 22, 19, and 17 were just babes. You are in the time of your life and boys are wonderful- my only experience with girls is girl friends and they are great too! I think you and Justin are wiser than Tim and I were at your age- Continue to trust Him for His faithfulness! I smocked night and day while Tim was a surgical resident but it doesn’t hold a candle to all of your talents!

    Darby, what a great job you do – and so quickly!! I wish I knew how to sew, I wish I had a sewing machine – maybe I’ll ask Santa to bring me one!!?? JM is darling – I’m right there with you on the pictures though – this blog is the only reason I get pictures of him these days (sad huh?) But hey, it’s keeping me on track! You’re a great mom – keep on keepin on!
