Introducing A Rainbow

After many months of waiting and praying, our hearts and home have welcomed a sweet little bundle of joy.  We know his sweet big sister, Mattie, has been watching over him from heaven and is rejoicing with us.  Mattie, our hearts still miss you more than ever, but we are so thankful to have the opportunity to know and love this little miracle.  Until we all are finally together, we want to continue to remember you and make you a part of our family.  I cannot share your brother with the world without also remembering and sharing you because you are so much a part of who he is and who we are now as a family.  We love you, our beautiful baby girl!  And now, we have another little one to love.  Here he is!

Mattox Christian
Born:  March 3, 2015 at 12:43 a.m.
Weight:  6 lbs. 13 oz.
Height:  20 inches

I hope to be able to fully document his birth story soon which did take a little longer than planned, but with lots of moving activities planned for this weekend after we are released from the hospital, it may take me a little longer to get it all down.  For now, we are just trying to get all the cuddling and snuggling time we can with this little sweetheart.

And Brody was super excited about his new little brother!
To our precious Mattox

You are our precious rainbow
A blessing from God above
Sent when our hope was low
As a sign of God's unfailing love.

As we anxiously awaited your arrival
and for your safety we prayed,
we learned to trust God for your survival
and upon Him our cares were laid.

Your first cries brought so much joy
and our hearts were overflowing again
As we welcomed another cute little boy
as a blessing after the rain.

You are such a sweet reward.
Oh how we love you so!
And we wish to thank our Lord
For you, our precious baby rainbow.


  1. I am so, so excited for you all! God is so good. Little Mattox is just perfect. You can feel the love you all have for him just by look at the pictures. I know that Mattie is watching over you all.

  2. So happy for you sweetie! Love you!

  3. How awesome! I have been "stalking" you blog waiting on his arrival. I'm so glad he is here safe and sound and hope and pray that your move goes well and you continue to adjust nicely to an earthly family of 5! <> Lana :)

  4. Oh Sherry -- This is just so amazing. I am sure Mattie is looking down and is also in love with her little brother. I think my favourite picture is the black and white one where Mattox and Eddie are just looking at each other. I can't wait to meet him!!!

  5. Even though this is not so new news anymore, I still love it! I think a 3rd golden birthday party is going to be just awesome, and we should get started on planning on it.

    You got some great pictures of the very beginning of Mattox's life!


Leave some love! Your comments make me happy!
