Sarah and Jude did great! Fastest delivery yet for our family... contractions began at 11:30 pm, labored at home comfortably till 1:05 am, crawled into the birthing center on all fours at 1:15 am, delivered at 1:30 am. The look on the nurses' faces when we arrived was priceless.
As always, we have chosen our children's middle names to bear witness to God's character in our lives. Over this last year, the importance of Integrity has meant a great deal to us... well, that's what Jude's middle name means in Hebrew. May he grow into a man of integrity after God's own heart.
If any of you have noticed that these posts are getting shorter and are sent out later, that's because you are right... that's what being parents to four, four and under, is like. We love it, and there's no place we'd rather spend our time.
Love in Christ,
Erik and Sarah
Catherine, Camille, Jack, and Jude
