Happy News...Our Family Grows Again

Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward.
Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children's of one's youth.
Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them!
He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate. Psalm 127:3-5

 It just keeps getting better! How could it not with the safe and speedy arrival of our fourth grandchild! In case you haven't noticed, we love, love, love babies around here. In fact, there is nothing sweeter in my book than holding a precious new life in your arms, especially if that little one belongs to someone you love.
   On Sunday, August 25, our middle son and his lovely wife welcomed their second child and first son into the world. The baby is named for both of his grandfathers which means that little James Edward Thomas White (to be known henceforth as JET)  has the wonderful heritage of two godly men who each feel so honored to have this little one carrying on a part of their name.
    One of the sweetest things we witnessed was getting to see Jet's Big Sister meet him for the first time. Her love and joy ooze out and spill over. If this doesn't warm your heart, nothing will!

Here we are in the Family Waiting Room at the hospital waiting for our son to come and get us.
Big Sister is nearly beside herself!
 Big Sister's first look: "What are they doing to him?"

 Daddy and his boy...
 "Can I hold him? Can I hold him? Can I hold him?" 
Mommy and Daddy patiently explain about how helpless little brother is and 
why Big Sister has to be so very careful with him. 
 "That's my baby brother...."

 My daughter-in-law's sister (Aunt B) came up from Birmingham to meet the little guy!
 The proud grandfathers with their namesake!
 This little girl loves her Mommy so much!
 Big Sister is just sure her baby brother is talking to her...
 Drum roll please...
Introducing the beautiful family of four!
 Baby Sister will always be a Daddy's girl!
 Camper and her Mimi
 One more hug...

" Is he here to stay?"
You betcha, Big Sister, and he will grow up thinking that you are the cat's meow. Just
promise not to paint his fingernails pink and you all will get along just fine!
