William and Calvin


William is a very happy boy today: he got to come up to the hospital to visit his baby brother, then bring him home!
He loves his baby brother! No matter who is holding him, William wants to sit next to them and watch Calvin. He constantly wants to be touching Calvin and is very gentle with him. It is so sweet to see!

Calvin Valor joined us December 8, 2009 at 10:45am. He weighed in at 8lbs, 15oz and is 20 1/2 inches long. Labor and delivery went very well, but his blood sugar dropped severely afterward, which earned him a long night in the NICU. Praise the Lord, he has done much better today and we were able to bring him home! The girls will post more about Calvin on their blog later tonight or tomorrow. Thanks for all the prayers on his behalf! We are extremely grateful to the LORD for His shelter and protection, mercy and grace, and the many blessings He has bestowed on our family.

"Behold, children are a heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is His reward." Psalm 127:3
