It's A Boy!!!

Steven James Carr, Jr. was born March 24th, at 3:35 in the morning. He weighs 7lbs 5 oz and is 20" long. He was born in our home. Crystal and the baby are both doing very well. We praise God for His lovingkindness and for giving us this arrow for our quiver.

Our midwife again voiced her opinion last Monday that we should expect to deliver one week late. I finally decided to believe her :) And so, we've enjoyed Steve's spring break - the weather's been beautiful! We've taken some walks outside, visited friends, read, relaxed.

My mom is planning to arrive late on Monday and stay with us for about a month. Steve's parents are heading out the following week (3/23) and staying for that week with Reverend Lanning and his wife. I can hardly wait for them all to arrive!

It's been wonderful to be able to walk more outside, instead of always inside on the treadmill (although I'm very grateful to have that option!). The fresh air is great! I hope I can keep walking outside up until the baby's born.

Steve's back to school on Monday. He's put out some applications for work this week and will follow-up with them on Monday, as well. We're so grateful to the Lord for supplying our every need.

Getting Closer...

We're getting closer to the arrival of our new little bundle of joy! Steve's spring break is next week, so we hope to deliver sometime before he starts classes again. Of course, God's timing is perfect and we will be thankful and rejoice whenever our baby is born! (It's not wrong to hope, though, and I'm hoping for his Saturday.)

Steve's been working hard this week with tests, papers and schoolwork. One more day and he'll get his earned break!
