Easter Blessings!

Luckily I was prepared in advance for Easter so when our sweet little boy arrived a couple days before all the fun, it wasn't too overwhelming.
My parents came down for the long weekend and we enjoyed our time together. Painting eggs, filling easter baskets, enjoying the beautiful spring weather and most of all giving thanks for our Savior. For his love, the giving of his life, and the gift of the atonement and resurrection. I do not think it a coincidence that we celebrate Easter during the season of --SPRING-- where new life is restored to all things waking from winter slumber.
i am so grateful for the new life I can have as I rely on my Savior Jesus Christ. Each day can be new because of the gift of the atonement.
So I give thanks for Easter Blessings. . . .and for the new life that has joined our family, our sweet Seth David Boehme and the new adventures of every day with Will, Maddison, Ethan and Emma!

Precious TIMES!

Our precious little boy is growing so fast. He amazed us all at his 1 week check by weighing in at 9 lbs 9.5 oz. I don't even think his birth weight dropped at all!!! My days are spent taking care of this sweet little man's every need and loving every minute of it. One thing I know for certain...laundry and dishes can wait, because these little ones don't stay little long.
I am enjoying every minute with my chubby cheeked, sweet smelling, soft skinned, bright eyed, perfect little boy!
