On Sunday afternoon Rich and I finally got to meet our new niece, Morgan! She is my brother Nathan and sister-in-law, Melissa’s, third child. At the same time, we were able to watch their son Greg play a game of football (he’s a star athlete already!)
Sarah held a baby for the very first time in her life!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It was such a joyful moment.
Caleb held the baby, too! I love this photo so much!
Me, Melissa, and Morgan. What a gift to be able to hold her and to visit with Melissa. I love you, sister!
And we got to see Makayla Lynn, their oldest daughter, & our beautiful niece. Sarah adores her cousin and they had a nice time playing during the game. Sarah wishes she could visit her cousins every weekend!
David and Seth were the only ones who didn’t want to hold the baby, (why?!?!) but here is Ethan with his little cousin. She looks so tiny in his arms.
And here’s Uncle Dave with Morgan!! This was his first time holding her, as well. He’s so good to all his nieces and nephews. We are so blessed to have Morgan in our family and thankful for her safe and happy arrival. I already posted photos of our other new baby, Elena, yep…..two of my brothers had baby girls within just a week and three days! My parents were thrilled! I cannot wait to have them both in the same room and take their photo together like twins!
Greg, as usual, scored a gazillion touchdowns. Between a new baby and an exciting game for Greg, our family was having a great day!
I’m proud of my brother Nate, the way he coaches football, and most of all the way he loves and takes care of his family. We love you, Nathan!
I’ve spent the morning preparing for our OLD baby’s birthday. Yes, our dear baby David Lloyd turns 16 years old TODAY. He is a bright and wonderful part of our family.
Here he is with his brother Ethan. David on the left, Ethan on the right.
He requested chicken and dumplings for dinner and either a cheesecake or ice cream cake for dessert. I went out this morning to get the ingredients for dinner, plus a cheesecake AND a small vanilla cake AND a small apple tart. Can you believe it, I forgot the vanilla ice cream but I DID remember the candles! I just got done wrapping his gifts. He’ll be home at 2:30 and then the party can begin.
PS, sorry for the excessive use of exclamation points! At times it cannot be avoided.
