Congratulations Kopecs and Cherrys!

On September 10th, my sister Stacey and her husband Joey welcomed their new baby, Thomas Jefferson into the world. He weighed in at 6 lbs. 2 ozs. and was 19 3/4 inches long. Stacey and Joey have two other kids, Gracie who will be 4 next week and Joey who is 2. They came home from the hospital today and are doing great! We were able to go up to the hospital a couple times to see them and are so excited for their beautiful, growing family :)

My sister Stacey, niece (and proud big sister) Gracie and baby Thomas.

Abbey loved getting to hold Thomas in the hospital. She is very excited for her soon coming, new baby brother!

And on September 9th (about 12 hours before my sister), my dear friend Samua and her husband JeRod had their baby boy, Elijah Micah. He weighed 6 lbs. 3 ozs. The very crazy thing is that Stacey and Samua had the very same due date (Sept. 29th) and they both had their babies three weeks early, within 12 hours of each other. Samua was hospitalized for three weeks before having their little guy as she had placenta previa. Please pray for Eli as they are keeping him a little longer in the hospital. Samua and JeRod have three other children so their family has been living under two different roofs for almost a month now. Their faith has been amazing as they've gone through this trying time, yet they are very ready to be home as a family of 6 so please pray for that to happen very soon.

Congratulations Kopecs and Cherrys!! We love you all dearly!
