Welcome Baby Joseph!

We have a new baby in our lives! Last Tuesday night we received a call from Carl and Rebecca asking us to come over and watch their little 2 year old, Hannah. Why? Because Baby Joseph was on his way! Joseph Anthoney was born the next morning at 6:42AM.

Back at Carl & Rebecca's house, we were both already awake with Hannah... she isn't too into sleeping in. She woke up at 6:00AM ready to play... oh the joys of a 2 year old. Being "Mommy" until about 10:00AM... ONLY 4 hours of awake time... really showed me how amazing Rebecca is. I was beat! So, hats off to all you Mommies out there.

On Sunday, we saw little Joseph for the first time. Funny thing is that I don't remember Hannah being so small (although I was reminded that she was even smaller!) He is the cutest thing and even looks like boy! I was expecting him to look like Hannah, but nope... he looks like Joseph! He is such a good baby and hardly fusses at all. Hopefully he will be mellower than his older sister, who was having a grand old time running around the house trying to entertain us and take our attention away from her new brother. Hannah actually is doing great with Joseph and loves to shower him with hugs and kisses… awww!

Anyway, congratulations to Carl & Rebecca and big sister Hannah!

Thank you for being such a sweet and dedicated uncle and aunt. We love you guys so much and can't thank you enough for all that you have done for us over the years. It is hard to feel like we are supportive of you in the same way you have been there for us, especially on account of having children. But Carl is talking about taking Hannah with him next week to the air show and checking out your booth. He'll bring the camera and maybe you can make use of some shots for your website or advertising down the road. You guys keep living it up with spontaneous trips and travel so we can vicariously live through you. Your blog has been a great way of catching us up when we all haven't had time to do so otherwise. Love to you both and we're always praying for your success in all your ventures.
