Ahhh...what a beautiful reminder of Christ's own birth joining you just in time. Pasternak said something along the lines of, "Every mother feels a bit like the Blessed Virgin when she willingly participates in God's act of creation." Congratulations!

(Just celebrated my own December baby's B-day today, the 21st. Seven years passed in the blink of an eye...)

God bless you all, and enjoy your Christmas together! Lauren

Redheadmamaof7boys said...

Suzanne! Congratulations!!!!
The world of boys. Amazing!

I hope we can someday get the whole group of boys together. Wouldn't that be a BLAST??

Merry Christmas!!!

Maria Rioux said...

I've been wondering...thought we might might hear something on frch....which was silly because I know I never have time to post when it's almost time for the baby to show up...and you had Christmas coming to boot! Christmas with your own newborn boy is truly special: a double blessing. We got to do that once and remember being overwhelming grateful on so many levels as well as concretely able to connect in a way we'd not before which was spiritually helpful for all of us. Wishing you a happy and holy Christmas and every good thing in the year to come.

Maggie said...
