Thank You....


A very Happy Valentines Day to everyone! I hope its filled with lots of love, hugs, and CHOCOLATE!! :P

And I also wanted to thank you all for the lovely comments about our little Winston. He is my delight and what a fun surprise that we had a boy!

Meredith asked about his middle name, which we had earlier decided on Freemont, but after thinking about it a little more, we decided on Benjamin. We will have to save Freemont as a middle name for another boy, if the Lord blesses us with another :) Winston means joyful rock. Seeing his little smiles already tells me it rings true :)

The birth started out really quick, my contractions began at three minuets apart. It was eleven hours of hard work! He was a water baby and came out with his hand on his face. I think he was sucking his thumb! :) His little hand, was what gave me so much trouble. My Mom and Marie were angels during the birth. I don't know how I would have done it with out them.

We went out on his one week Birthday, my parents treated Marie and I to manicures. Nicely colored nails does a girl's heart wonders! They are beautifully red in celebration of Valentines Day.
My parents flew back to Colorado today and I miss them so very much! It was nice that they were able to see both of their grand babies :)

Thank you all again for your kind kind words. I have reread through them several times! Much love on this wonderful Valentines Day :)

More pictures to come!

Happy Valentine's Day!!! I feel the same as Davene, I love the updates and tidbits!!

This whole year when I write/type the word Valentine's Day I remember your mom giving that word on a spelling test and the word Day had to be capitalized because it was part of the name Valentine's Day not Valentine's day!!!!!
