Once upon a time, there was a young lady (my middle child, Melissa)....
She fell in love and got married. Not only did she gain a husband (Jim), but she gained this...
a new son! This is J.W. at about the age of three. And the family gained their first grandchild!!
And J.W. got a new little brother. He is nicknamed "Rascal" here on the blog.

And, because of that, momma said that there would be no more little babies in their household.
Unless she knew that God could give her a little girl and and one who was quiet in nature like herself.
Even so, it would take a miracle, she said (can you see where I'm going with my story?) And she was content with what God had given her.
|Rascal loves tractors and big equipment, dogs and playing with his cousins.|
It was right after the holidays. She opted to give her parents the news over the phone since her mom had been battling the flu. They were speechless but extremely elated! And then the news spread to the rest of the family.
Needless to say, everyone was praying that she would have a little girl. She needed a little girl! Maybe someone who was more quiet and reserved like her momma. Time passed and further ultrasounds revealed that at least one prayer had been answered. Another granddaughter (number three) was being added to the brood.
|J.W. loves being creative, sports and fishing.|
As time passed, momma wrestled with the joys and tribulations of new motherhood and pregnancy and the family anxiously awaited the arrival of the new baby. Nursery colors were chosen and names were tossed around and discussed but nothing definite was decided.
Finally, the big day came! God was good. Labor and delivery went extremely well. The new little princess arrived on July 22nd.
Rascal is about to explode with the joy and anticipation of helping momma take care of this new little bundle.
As much as he tried to hide it, it's easy to see that J.W. is also happy with his new little sister.
A name was finally chosen for the new baby though not the one that Rascal wanted.
But, here on the blog, we will use the name he chose (why he chose it no one knows!)
She will be called Peaches.
Welcome to our family, Peaches!
Momma says she is a good baby and only time will tell as to whether or not she has a personality more like herself. But God is good. I think that the family's prayers have been answered. :)
P.S. THIS is the big news that I've been wanting to share with you guys!! It was so hard to keep it a secret but I wanted to wait until her arrival. We are truly blessed. Seven grandchildren ranging from almost 15 to 23 days of age, four boys and three girls.
Until next time ~
