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 of one's youth.

Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them!

Psalm 127:3-5b

English Standard Version (ESV)

*About the name "Fern"

Aaron Job (5 1/2) is a good big brother...in this pic, he's already singing Ava a lullaby.

Abby (3 yrs) is soooo excited! She wanted to take Ava home just after she was born.

When we finally were able to bring Ava home, Abby ran to the door shouting,

"Mikaela! Mikaela! Mikaela!"

I said, "Abby, her name isn't Mikaela."

Abby: "Oh....what was her name again?"

And then Anna (18 mths). Lots of blank stares. This is going to be interesting.

Anna is very clingy with only two items.

Perhaps Anita described Anna best when she

re-wrote the song "My Favorite Things":

(got the tune in your head yet?)

Mommy and Blankie and Mommy and Blankie,

Mommy and Blankie and Mommy and Blankie,

Mommy and Blankie and Mommy and Blankie,

These are a few of my favorite things...

We'll just have to see how she does.

One last shot...all 18 1/2 inches & 5.3 pounds of her!

(BTW, that's a "preemie" outfit that's swallowing her up!)
