Samuel David

Born July 28, 2011, 12:10 am

7 lbs. 7 oz., 20 1/4 inches long

It is with great joy that we announce the birth of our son, Sam. Samuel means “asked of God” or “God heard” and David means “beloved.” He is named in part after his grandfather and uncle.

Mother and baby are healthy and doing well and the whole family is resting and enjoying getting to know each other. I had a quick, textbook natural labor for which we are very thankful. I will be writing up Sam’s birth story in the next few weeks and will share it here on the blog. So far he is a great eater and sleeper and all-around very content. Thank you for your love, support, and prayers with us on this journey. Please continue to uplift all of us in the weeks ahead as we adjust to this new season in life.

    Love you, friend! Congratulations, again, on the birth of little Sam. I got a bit teary when I read the meaning of his name. What a blessing and a gift from God to you and Jeff. Get some rest. Enjoy the hospital stay.

    Oh Sarah, I’m so happy for you! He’s beautiful. (Of course, I’m anxious to hear the birth story!) But for now, I’m so glad that he’s here and that you are all doing well!

    Ohhh….he’s so darling! So happy with you, Jeff and Sarah….just rejoicing in God’s kindness….

    That’s funny, though….he doesn’t look AT ALL like the Roo I’m familiar with….I expected bigger ears! (smile)

    Just had to send our love from the boonies of Mongolia….

    Lisa, for Tom and Ahnya, too!
