Lil' Man's Debut

Luke David Sammons
February 19, 2013
6 lbs. 12 oz.
19 1/4 inches

Yup, we're smitten. 

On that morning I glanced at my phone and noticed I had a missed call from my mom. Uh-oh I thought, it's Tuesday...she probably needs me to work at Mom's Day Out. I will admit I debated how soon to return her call (sorry mom). Fortunately, the Lord reminded me how generous my mom is with her time and will almost always drop what she's doing to help me. So I tapped her number and I'm so glad I did.

"Sarah's water broke!" Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!!!!!! He was coming.

My eyes immediately welled up with tears (much like they are now as write) because I knew Jake and Sarah's moment was coming. The moment they would meet their baby. The moment they would become parents. For me now, the moment I get to see someone I love become a parent. I would have a thousand babies just to experience "the moment". There is nothing like it. 

There is nothing like him. 

I had the utmost privilege of watching Sarah bring this little one into the world. It was the best early present ever. Sarah you are a rockstar!!!

Happy Birthday lil' man. There is more love in this family than you'll be able to stand...and Millie will warm up :)

  2. God is so good! Each new life is so amazing to this Grandma..I love the way they each have their own look, birth story and cute personalities. I value time spent with each one because I know how fast it goes and I don't want to miss it. I love holding Luke and smelling his newness. Oh that new baby smell~it's the best. Luke David welcome to this crazy family! We love you so much....xxxooo grandma
