Evie Kate Is Here!

Our precious daughter!

1 week old

A month old... she has already grown and changed SO much!

Family vacation at the beach one week before Evie Kate's arrival... little did we know she would make her early entrance soon!

On August 2nd Brent, Noah and I welcomed Evelyn Kathleen into our family! "Evie Kate" was born at 37 weeks gestation, weighing 5 pounds 12 ounces and measuring 18.25 inches long. She is such a precious blessing and our whole family is absolutely taken with her! Noah is quickly adjusting to being a big brother, and his new favorite word is "sissy". We are so thankful for her safe and healthy arrival, and love our new family of four!

Riding the tractor with Daddy!

It's been an exciting spring! We've taken trips to WPB and Orange Beach, AL. Our visit with Chad and Sandy Dorsey in South FL was great. It was so much fun to catch up with them, and Noah even got to go on his first boat ride! He loved it. Noah also got to meet sweet Addie, and thought she was really pretty. :-) Since we left them in March, they have welcomed baby Dean into their family. We can't wait to meet him! Noah, my mom and I met Betsy, Weston and momma Black in Orange Beach, AL for a mother/daughter/baby boy week! It was a blast! Felt so good to soak up some sun and feel the ocean breezes. Noah LOVED it... I think we've created a beach bum! He especially enjoyed playing in the waves and finding beach shells. And... after practicing on the beach, he has started walking on his own!

We found out that we are having a sweet baby girl, but there will be only one baby. Baby B was devastatingly lost between 16-20 weeks. We have since grieved his/her loss and have tried to focus on our healthy daughter. What a blessing she will be! She is very active and is growing perfectly - all is expected to go well with her. This situation reminds me again and again of a song by Matt Redman: "Lord, you give and take away. You give and take away. My heart will choose to say, Lord blessed be your name..." He has blessed us beyond measure and we give him all the glory for our baby girl!
