Mother's Day Special Delivery









I'm not sure we could have scripted a better Mother's Day blessing for our family.

While our daughter arrived on Saturday night, it has been a delight to celebrate with family and friends today on Mother's Day.

The kids and I visited Cara and baby Rebecca at the hospital before heading over to our church this morning. We might be excused for our late arrival but I ought to seek forgiveness for creating the distraction that followed. As we joined the service already in progress, sharp-eyed friends noted the hospital tag strapped around my wrist and discreetly asked,"did Cara have the baby?" Wouldn't you know it but this proud papa had a digital camera full of photos and slipped it to the family right behind us. In a moment the camera was circulating 15 rows behind us and worship took a bit of a detour for the families in our immediate location!

Suffice it to say, we're blessed, blessed, blessed to welcome Rebecca to the family. Enjoy the photos and I'm sure Cara will have much to share when we let her get back to her laptop again.

I'm so incredibly happy that Rebecca has arrived safe and sound and the family was able to celebrate a very "special" mother's day this year! Many blessings on the new addition!

What beautiful kids! Their smiles remind me of my own little ones holding baby Grace at the hospital. Those photos are so precious!

She's absolutely gorgeous! You need to have that music playing on the blog - Isn't She Lovely :D

She's a beauriful addition to her brother and sister. A new writer in the making?

Congratulations to the Putmans.

Aww, what a precious little girl. And Abigail looks just like you, Cara. Look at those blond locks on both your daughter and son. Hard to say if Rebecca will be the same, but you've got a beautiful family.

Congrats!

Thanks, Eric, for sharing the story. I had to laugh at the distraction during worship. I did that once, but it was when I got engaged and came back home to show off the ring. :)

God rejoices with us, so I'm sure He forgave.

Thanks, everyone. We have been blessed with another delightful baby. And we'll try to get more photos up soon. Abigail and Jonathan are loving having a little sister. And it's fun to compare baby photos and see just how strong the family resemblance is.
