It seems so long since I’ve updated this site. Dial-up is another world when you are used to high-speed internet. I can’t tell you how difficult it is do accomplish simple tasks…things like banking, using the library or just checking store hours. Websites just aren’t being made to use dial-up anymore.

These pictures were actually taken about a month ago, but since we’re trying to catch things up, I’m posting them now: Courtney, at this point, is a pro with babies! We also have help from another big sister. She’s always running to find a diaper or a blanket and has introduced the baby to all of her own babies.

A day later than expected, but perfect, and pink, and beautiful. Thank you all for sweet notes and especially prayer. It’s been a long week, and we’re all tired, but she’s absolutely wonderful in every way! I’ll post more a little later. With love,
