Celebrate God's goodness with us!
I invite you to listen to one of my favorite songs (immediately below—great lyrics and music) and to enjoy a few pictures of God's gracious gift (that's what Ivy means) to our family.
Just moments after her birth: Stacy and I are thrilled. Ivy... not so much. (You can enlarge any photo below by clicking it.)
Finally, Sadey is a big sister. She called, "First to hold the new baby," last December. Sadey was first.
Libby—also know in the family as "baby hog." Not there is any fighting going on or anything.
Josey hoping the game of hot potato doesn't end with her changing the diaper.
Aubrey happy and surprised... or maybe Ivy dirtied her first diaper. Not sure which... or perhaps both.
Tough enough to play rugby like a beast and yet gentle enough to love a new born baby... my son Bill is a great man.
Grandma Porky (Bill's mom) and Ivy.
A few days later, we got Emily home from Moody Bible Institute to introduce her to Ivy... and take these pictures.
Go ahead and sing it: "Father Allison had many kids. Many kids had Father Allison...."
