He is Ours


I have struggled through a lot of questions during this pregnancy. Why did the Little Pirate come to us? Why 4 instead of 3? Is this part of our family's great, eternal plan? Why didn't he go to one of a dozen couples I know who are desperately trying to have a baby? Why now? etc. etc. etc...

So at last he's here, sitting in my arms, sticking his tongue out and making worried-lined-forehead faces at me - and I still don't have all my questions answered. Except one - I know he is ours.

Unconditionally, completely, gratefully ours.

Love the pictures of the kids holding him. And love his wrinkly worried forehead. He's darling and was so fun to hold the other day. PLEASE call me if you want/need help. :)

Yeah!!! Congrats! He is so beautiful! What a blessing! I honestly think that 4 is easier than 3 if that helps any :) Hope you are getting some sleep! Love ya!

Oh Rae I'm so happy for you. This post is beautiful, as is that new baby of yours. Congratulations. I can't wait to meet him in person.

He is definitely yours - a Mckinnon through and through by the looks of him. Congratulations! Four is great. Your kids will always have a buddy and two on two basketball is right around the corner :)

So happy for you! Can't wait to see him in person. You'll have to email me his name. I'm dying to know! Congrats to you all!

Congratulations! He is precious. I'm glad all is well and the kids seem to adore him. Does he have a name yet?

What a cute baby! I can't wait to hold him (once cold and flu season is over, of course!)

YEAH! Congrats! He is handsome! I'm so glad everything went well. I'm still scared to have number 4. Jared is all for it, but I don't know if I'm a good enough mother to have 4. 4 is scary. I know you will do great though!

way to bring on the water works! Beautiful pictures of everyone and we're so happy for all of you. I've been thinking of you all week - but whenever my day slows to a point I can call without someone screaming - I know it's during your nap time - and I think that's sacred for you! I hope to talk to you soon and I hope you are doing well! lots of hugs.
