My Small Successes XXIX

It's been a huge week of small successes here on the Range, but today we're going to talk about our big successes!

1. I had a baby boy!

2. Did I mention he was a big guy?

3. He's had his first check-up and weighed in at 9 pounds 12 ounces. I'm pretty sure he's already gaining weight back. The nursing is going very well. The older kids love having my parents here. My grandmother has been holding Second Son as often as I'll let her and just loves snuggling him. The baptism is scheduled for next week.

A special thanks to those who read my successes last week and offered prayers and words of encouragement. Second Son was born the very next day and, though it seemed rough at the time (doesn't it always?), we were blessed with a safe delivery and a wonderful healthy baby!

Head over to Faith and Family to read more small successes!


  1. CONGRATULATIONS! What a wonderful blessing for your family! He is adorable & his siblings look so happy to have a new baby brother.

  2. Congratulations! A new baby is such a blessing. My sister just had her 6th on Wednesday. She's very far away, so I don't know when I'll get to meet the little girl, but it's such a joy to know she's in the world. I know that's how you and your family must be feeling! God bless him!

  3. Yep - I'd say a baby, especially a 10 pounder - is the best success of all. So glad the prayers worked!! So impressive he came on his due date! So rare!! Enjoy the baby moon...

    He's lovely. Snuggle him for me!!

  4. Can't ask for a better set of successes! God Bless you and your growing family!
