Ok, he’s been here since the 14th, and I’m just now getting around to mentioning him?Â BAD Auntie Char!
My brother Ken and his wife Sarah welcomed a new baby boy to the family on the 4/14, AT 4:14 p.m.Â His name is Brodrick Jonathan, and we all call him Brody.Â Now, for a few pictures…
And the one that makes me cry every time I see it…
I’m so, so, so thankful for this baby boy Brody… for his two big sisters, Gracie and Clara, and for their daddy and mama – my little brother Ken and his wife Sarah.Â
And today, I especially want to say a little prayer of thanks for Sarah.Â She just went through a third pregnancy – one that they didn’t completely plan to experience – but she made it through like a trouper and helped bring a huge blessing to our entire family.Â
Sarah is an awesome mom, and I aspire to be like her.Â I know I never will BE like her, because God made us different, but I still try!Â She is soft-spoken, gentle, caring, sweet, nurturing, calm, collected, loving, and so much more.Â She is totally gonna rawk this “Mom of three”Â business – and I’m sure she’ll do it better than I do!Â (In fact, she’s probably already handling it easily, while a year later I’m still in survival mode!)
Sarah is the perfect wife for my brother, and the perfect mom to his kids.Â I’m so glad God brought her into our family and made us sisters.Â And I can’t wait to get on a plane so I can hug her and the rest of the gang, and tell her in person how thankful I am for her and those three amazing kiddos she gets to raise up!
And yes, in case you haven’t guessed, I’m nominating Sarah for Laura’s “Honoring Mom’s” Mother’s Day event.Â
And now I’m gonna go look at baby Brody’s pictures again and try not to miss them all so much!
P.S. I would have posted a picture of Sarah and Brody, but I’m pretty sure sheÂ would prefer that I NOT post pictures of her in hospital garb right after delivering a baby.Â Call me silly…
