New baby

She’s here!

Janie Elisabeth

Born April 21, 2014

7 lb. 5 oz and 19 inches long

New baby

Her four older brothers absolutely adore her!

Jonathan (2) is so excited to have a baby around and to hold her.  He has loved babies for a long time and is so glad we have our own.  (And I’ll be watching him carefully to make sure he’s not too hands on – should be exciting!)

We are so thankful to God for His gift to our family!

I’ll be taking time off to rest and recover, but I have a few posts to publish over the next couple of weeks that I wrote ahead before Janie’s arrival.  Also, you can follow me on the Frugal Fun for Boys Facebook page where I’ll be sharing posts from the archives and posts from other bloggers.

            How wonderful! She's beautiful - and wow, that hair! It will be so fun to see the older boys enjoy her. My 5 year old is absolutely in love with his baby sister. So neat to see those relationships develop.

                        Thanks for sharing the photos. My kids were excited to see their gymnastics friends and the baby.
