And then we were 4 :: Speechless

Monday, June 27, 2011

Exactly 26 months following his big brother's entrance into the world, Tony and I could not be more proud to announce the arrival of our newest "little man," Ezra John. _00066

We are once again humbled to be entrusted with a precious new life and are completely joyful to God for this beautiful son. _00095

Making his debut at 11:43pm on Sunday, June 26th, Ezra is not quite the "little brother" weighing almost a pound and over an inch more than Isaac at 8lbs 2oz and 21 inches.

"And when she was in her hardest labor, her midwife said to her "Fear not, for you have another son." Genesis 35:17

Ezra is just a doll. I love Isaac's sweet little hand on his face.

Want to hear something funny? This morning when I first saw that first picture, I could have sworn Tony wasn't wearing a shirt. And I thought that was a little...strange...but whatever works. But now that I saw more pictures, I realize he was.

Love to your family from ours :)

Mrs. Lukie said...

Have I reached stalker status yet, what with my comments and "likes" on FB, and now posting over here? ;)

I can't convey to you how happy I am for your family, Leah.

I haven't yet reached the point of "I can't wait to meet my baby!" because I'm just loving the whole being pregnant part right now...Until I saw the photos on FB and read this blog entry. And now? Now I can't wait to meet my baby and the next 15 weeks will never go by fast enough.

Congratulations. Ezra is beautiful.

emilyhansen said...

Congratulations Leah!! I haven't visited your blog in so long-motherhood has a way of cutting into our blogging time, huh? Couldn't be happier for your family-that top picture made my heart ache with joy for you-I remember those emotions so well. There is absolutely nothing like that. Your little guy is a hunk. Hope you guys are adjusting well to life as a foursome. May God continue to bless you richly!
