The Third Musketeer Is Here!
My sister Amanda had her 3rd baby today! To announce his birth I thought I’d share something I’ve done for each of my sister’s pregnancies. Each pregnancy I’ve nicknamed the baby before we knew if it was a boy or a girl, and I’ve made a jar that represents that nickname and baby to give to my sister. They are in order from oldest to newest: Aidan (Jelly Bean – very appropriate since he has a love affair with anything sugar); Hannah (Lima Bean); and the third runner up (3rd Mini Musketeer) Houston. Houston weighs 8 lbs and 20 and 1/4 inches long (not so “mini” after all). Houston and Amanda are doing great – Congratulations Jason and Amanda!!!
What a beautiful baby! May He grow in wisdom and grace
and come to know Jesus as his LORD and Savior at an early age, and serve Him with all his heart.
My sister had three babies before Dennis and I were able to adopt our Amanda. We had been trying for 11 1/2 years
to have a child of our own. So I lavished my love on my nieces and nephew…they are grown and married with babies of their own now and I love them all so much!
Jelly Bean, Lima Bean and Mini Musketeer are so Blessed to have you for their Aunt to love and influence them all their lives. You are precious to me,
Amen and Amen to the first part of your comment! We treasure Aidan, Hannah, and Houston – they are a blessing to us! You are precious to me too, friend!
Tell Amanda we said congrats! The third musketeer is too cute! I know your mom is eating all three of them up! Tell them all we said hello and are so happy for all of you guys as we watch your family grow, in more ways than one. 🙂
You guys are so blessed, but mostly, because of someone I know seeks after God’s own face to center her life, your entire family is blessed! As you center you life around Him, I see God’s glory all around you brightly shinning! What a tremendous blessing you are not just to your family, but to all you share your life with. You are an inspiration! When I grow up I want to be like you, :).
Love & Prayers,
I’ll pass this along to Amanda, Gail! Yes, Mom loves being a grandmother – she’s a good one too! She’s a huge help to Amanda. Love you guys!!!
