Beautiful Boy


We have a new, sweet baby boy. He is absolutely gorgeous and I am so happy that our family of three is now a family of four. We are now a multitude of Senns. 

Little Bit, as I will be calling him here, was born on May 27 at 5:49 p.m. He weighed in at a whopping 9 lbs 2 oz. But when I hold him he doesn't seem that big. I guess I am so used to toting around a 29 pound 18-month-old. (Yes, I know I have BIG babies.)

A little about our new boy:

He has red hair. 

He was born 9 days past his "due date."

He is a big eater and like all newborns his favorite activity is cuddling. 

Our sweet "big baby," R, is getting used to being a brother. 

But I don't doubt he will be the best big brother he can be. As my mother has reminded me, this new baby is as much a part of God's plan for R's life as he is for mine and Jason's lives. 

It's been interesting so far to have two under two. I was really frightened the first day Jason went back to work after only a week off. But I held it together nicely. Everyone was clean, fed and still somewhat happy when Daddy got home. 

But I have a feeling that in a few more months these boys are going to gang up on me with their cuteness. 

For now I leave you with a verse I picked out for I.

You have been helped by Me before you were born and carried since you were born. Even when you are old I will be the same. And even when your hair turns white, I will help you. I will take care of what I have made. I will carry you, and will save you.

Isaiah 46:3b-4
