There’s a party going on right here; a celebration to last throughout the year…

I am really happy that this is going to be a long weekend coming up.  That is the reason for the “party going on right here.”  It will be nice to have some time to just sit back and relax for a couple of days.  I need it right now.  I will spend all day with my three girls.  I love days when we have nothing planned to do, and we can just coast.  For that reason I don’t really have much to say, and I won’t check in until next week.  I hope that everyone has a fabulous Independence day, and a great rest of the weekend.  Get out and enjoy the weather, and hopefully you can spend a little time by a pool or something.

Right now, this is a moment made for worshiping…

So little did I know when I wrote my blog yesterday that I would be meeting my new daughter today.  Sophie was born this morning at 10:21 AM.  She weighed 8lbs. 9oz., and was 20 in. long.  She has a head full of jet black hair.  It has been a whirlwind of a day though.  We arrived at the hospital last early this morning around 1:30AM.  We walked around the halls from 2:15 until 3:15, and then we were admitted into the hospital around 4:00AM.  They broke Kim’s water at 5:30, and Kim started pushing about 9:50.  Sophie was here a mere 30 minutes later.

It is truly a moment made for worshiping when a new life comes into the world.  It is simply amazing that God orchestrates this entire miracle that takes place in a woman’s body.  I was singing that song by Steven Curtis Chapman as Sophie was delivered.  It is such an emotional experience as well.  It is, all at once, frightening, awe-inspiring, amazing, exciting, and life changing.  I truly cannot even explain the great honor I feel in knowing that God would trust me to be the father of two stunningly beautiful little girls.  I know that there are going to be times that are tough, but it is going to be an amazing journey along the way.  I will check in soon, but in the meantime here are a couple of pictures.
