Family Pictures


Our newest grandson has arrived healthy, happy and adorable!  I'm so pleased that our daughter was able to have the home birth she planned and everything went well.  Big brother  Cole was the first to see his new sibling and then announce to the rest of us waiting, "It's Jasper!"  

I do believe that Cole really likes his new brother.

Jasper's other grandmother and I were given the awesome privilege of being the first ones to dress him after birth, and then everyone wanted to hold him.

Jasper's grandfathers passed him like old pros, even if it was past 3 in the morning by now.

It was my first time to be a part of a home birth and I have to say it was thrilling.  Having the whole family there and enjoying some bonding time with Jasper so soon after his birth was a wonderful experience.

Having the newly revised Hill clan together to worship our Lord just 3 days later was also a joy.

Linda~ I just caught up on several blog posts. I want you to know how we NEVER forget Jimmie and you in our prayers. We are praying, praying, praying. I'm a bit of a baby, but I cried when little Jasper got here and you all were there to see it. I have prayed and prayed for Jimmie's health to be what it needed to be so he could be there to receive that precious blessing. We love you all and wont' stop the prayers coming. That baby is PRECIOUS!
