Welcome to my eclectic journey of my life and delights. This year my theme is surrendering my writing pen to the true author, Jesus Christ, while looking forward to the future, reflecting on the past and dancing through my journey.

Thing One and Thing Two

In the midst of our rain the sun shined down on us Wednesday, when Thing One and Thing Two entered into our world.

Still feeling great and waiting the birth of her two sons, my daughter met the challenge with the same tenacity she lives  life.  Everything went well, receiving her heart's  desire, she didn't have to have a C-Section to deliver her boys.
Dad was suited up in case there was an emergency.  Can you tell he is one proud Dad?

Elliott James arrived first, weighing in at 6 pounds and 1 oz.
Three minutes later, his younger brother

Thomas Ezekiel, weighed in at 5 pounds and 3 ozs

This is Elliott James, Thomas has an appointment at the NICU resort for a few days.  He is doing great and will join his whole family in a couple of days.

David...big brother at the old age of 18 months, got to meet his brother, however, I don't have that picture with me at this time.

Proud Uncle Ben had the honor of being the first Uncle to hold Elliott

 David and Grand Mommy had to do some shopping for his stay with me.
The wonderful blessing of being a Grand Mommy is just the greatest.  As I listened to my daughter tell about the birth of her sons.........our hearts were linked, once again, by the common thread of MOTHERHOOD.  

She comes home soon...next week is the end of school...and next Friday our son's graduation.  Just in case I thought life might slow down...................it starts speeding at 100 miles per hour.

We once again say Thank you, to the Lord of all Creation and His wonderful faithfulness to our family.  Ps. 127:3

Hi Janette! Congratulations on the birth of your grandsons. Praise God she was able to avoid a c-section and her heart's desire was fulfilled. That is so great!

Texas-sized congratulations to your family!

Cecilia Marie Pulliam said...

Slow down... what a thought. I've been waiting for years for that to happen. In retirement, maybe? My parents say no. So we'll see. I have two more grandchildren expected this year. One at the end of June and one September, bringing the total up to seven, ranging in ages from eighteen to newborn. I wish we were closer so I could spend more time with them... Congratulations on your growing family! And thank you for sharing them with us.

Debbie Petras said...

It's amazing to see how big your family has grown lately! God is good Janette. And He is faithful. When we don't know what will happen next, He blesses us in ways we never anticipated. I love the photo of you holding the baby.

Love you,

Sharon said...

Congratulations on this double blessing! Glad to hear that everyone's doing well! And kudos to your daughter and her hubby - I can't imagine having three kids under the age of 2! (And boys!!) I will never tire of pondering the mysteries of birth. And I am eternally grateful for the opportunity that grace provides for a *second birth*!

Beautiful family, Janette. So happy for you all.


Maryann said...

I know your heart must be filled to the brim with the joy of that these grands bring to you. Congratulations on the newest two additions. I'm kinda of like you, I thought as I got older things would settle a bit but just the opposite seems to be true. Congratulations again and enjoy these moments.
