Count your Blessings

 I try to always be mindful to see right in front of me all that I have and be grateful. With Easter weekend happening two days ago, I really spent some time thinking about Christ and the magnitude of his presence in my life. Not only did He die for ME, love me daily, and make it possible for me to have peace and an eternity with him, he gave me such blessings here on earth!

Joe had to work nearly the entire Easter weekend. When duty calls in real estate you can't choose not to respond and expect deals to close. So on this beautiful Saturday Crew and I went to work with Daddy. Well, what that means is that we spent the whole day in the car! Waiting for meetings, and showings, and then more showings...
As I usually do, I brought my camera because we were planning on making time to see if a few tulips were blooming. We never made it to the tulips but I got to spend the whole day, in the car, with this little redhead. This little redhead that I never expected to come to me. This little guy who is most precious and sweet. We have spent five and one-half months together, he and I, and I still can't believe he is ours and that God blessed us so abundantly!

I'm sure my Facebook community is probably tired of baby pictures and to that I say don't look, but I have to share what God has done for me and what a gift I have in this little boy!!!

And as if this was not enough for the weekend, Ethan and Jack made the decision to be baptized! I'm going to share about that next!

Thank you Jesus for your continued blessings, I am so grateful!

Birth of Crew Abraham

 I have thought often about writing this post and sharing these photos but honestly Crew's birth was so amazing and priceless it left me speechless for quite some time. These shots are from Little Earthling Photography. We started the morning like this, a big belly and a lot of nervous butterflies. Although I had done this three times before, it was like the first time. 
I got all set up to have a scheduled C- section and daddy prayed. He was so nervous and excited to meet our long awaited baby. 
 And then he was here, a miracle
Fresh and new and perfect, 

and very pink.

 and very, very cherished. 
 A sweet boy, long awaited,
 filling mommy's arms full of love,
and making daddy's heart complete. 

Hard to believe it has been almost four months already, four wonderful months with this sweet baby named Crew.

In love with a question?

First, this is how I spend my days and nights... With this absolutely gorgeous baby! We have been blessed beyond measure with this bundle of pure joy.  Crew Abraham, born October 24th, 2011 weighing 8lbs, 8ozs, and 21 1/2 inches long. Perfect in every way! Now I realize raising a newborn is a full time job and I assume that every mom feels the magnitude of this feat!  And I know I have brought this up before in a previous post,  but here is the thing... I told my husband I wanted to order Crew's birth announcements and he asked "why, with facebook, and texts, and email everyone has heard the good news!" For me, birth announcements are a tradition so they are ordered (with Joe's blessing). But it in a way Joe is right. Do people get tired of seeing the same news over and over?  When I do have a few spare minutes while my angel boy sleeps, (and I am feeling rested) I want to make photo books at my publisher, facebook, blog, work on his baby book etc. Should I blog and facebook? I used to love to update our family events but now I feel like with facebook it is just extra work. But then I miss it!?  Anyone else out there feel overwhelmed with all this technology?
