Jonah sucking thumbEarly Wednesday, Phil called saying that Michelle had their baby!  The baby’s name is Jonah Obadiah.  He weighed in at a healthy 8 pounds and 14 oz and measured 21.5 inches long.

Yesterday we went over to meet Jonah. I had offered to take some newborn pictures for Michelle, and I had a little time to do that.  I did not take a lot, but am happy with most of them.  He never fell into a deep sleep, so most of the pictures were taken while someone held him.  The kids loved that!

Megan was disappointed she did not have a blog and wanted to share too.  She said “ike Joe NA.  Nice Joe NA.  Keep Joe NA!”

P.S.  My “cousin” picture is now outdated :)  Guess I will have to try again soon.



On Easter, I tried taking a current picture of all the cousins.  It is difficult to get eight children all to look nice at the same time 🙂

I tried again on Monday.  Monday’s is better, but I cheated.  I used a composite of all the pictures that I had and edited them.  I need more practice on composites, but I am happy with my first try.
