Was it a Prince or a Princess?

My Beloved has felt all along that #4 would be a princess. He just knew. I was right there with him until the last week. As I was gathering baby clothes from bins to get washed and take to the hospital I just felt that I really should grab more boy things. I started doubting we were having a girl.

Well, the long and short of it is that Monday, July 5th we welcomed a prince into the family.  Little Ezekiel John weighed in at 9lbs 6 1/2 oz and 22 inches long. He looks a bit like the 2 before him...lots of dark hair and dark skin. Kiersten will be our only fair skinned beauty with her copper hair.

I don't have pictures up yet...just haven't had the time to get them on the computer, but I'll get there, promise.

K, just a quick update to say that the littlest man has arrived! : ) Take care and hopefully I'll update with pictures sooner than later.

Prayer Request

Just wanting to ask prayer for this dear family. Their young son, Jake, will be undergoing brain surgery sometime today to help drain some fluid from an abcess that formed as a result of an infection a little over 2 weeks ago. Mom and Dad (Ali & Mitch) are struggling and just crying out for prayers...and thus I am crying out as well.

Jake has a heart condition, has since the womb, and that has added to some of the distress, some of the worry. These parents aren't new to hospital stays and plenty of doctors, however, they are new to brain issues. The brain was just not something they thought would need tending to and it scares them in ways they hadn't thought possible.

They just need prayers. Here Jake is with his sweet sisters, Olivia and Grace. If you want to stay connected and updated with Jake's family they do have a caringbridge site.

Thanks for the prayers in advance!
