Our sweet newborn

We are settling into life with our sweet newborn, Zachary.  He really is a good baby and has been a blessing to our lives since the day he was born.  I have said to Zev on a few occasions "we are so blessed by God."  After I say this, the thought "I need to give something back to others to pass it on" pops into my head.  I do believe in passing on blessings whenever possible.....The pregnancy went well ("textbook perfect" as Zev would say) and Zachary's labor and delivery went well (again "textbook.").  We give thanks for this every day and do hope to glorify God through our lives.  Our parents headed home this past weekend and it was lovely having the extra help.  Howard and Zev basically re-landscaped the yard and it is such a pleasure to look out there from Zachary's nursery/ our kitchen window and spend time enjoying the yard.  My mum was a welcome help and washed clothes, cleaned the house etc without being asked.  We will miss them so much!  Here are some pictures from the past two weeks with Zachary.  We love you, son!

We really like the way they turned out!

Zev is a wonderful grateful for him.

My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth... Psalm 135:15

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful family. We can't say it enough, you are BLESSED. The love and joy you give to and share with your family and friends is confirmation that you are passing on the blessings you have received. It will be such a pleasure watching you family grow. Thank you for always sharing. XOXO
