A new baby! A new addition to the circle of people we love! Little Lucas Carver Nachtigal was born on Friday, August 8th. he weighed 8 and a half pounds. Lucas is as big and healthy and content as you could ever hope a baby to be!
(you’re getting great big pictures today, better to see the baby!)
It’s so refreshing to see a young couple with their values intact starting their family. Their commitment to one another is apparent when you are with them. Luke’s maturity, and his love for his sweet young wife and baby is just heart warming. And Anita is about the sweetest, warm hearted going girl. They’ll be great parents. They love God and follow him with their whole hearts. It’s nice to see a little one born into that kind of a setting. To be given every possible advantage as they start out their lives.
His little face looks so much like Luke. But they think he has Anita’s nose. I saw some of her in his eyes. He’s a peaceful baby. Just a little package of new life and hope and everything that is innocent and beautiful. I can’t wait until the kids get Skype so that I can watch him grow! Babies are the most wonderful little people. Just holding one seems to put the world back into perspective, doesn’t it? :o)
Congratulations Luke and Anita! I’ll have to wait until tomorrow to post the videos. My video camera is giving me some trouble. I’m hoping it’s just because the battery is low, so I have it on the charger for the night.
Belle and Zion enjoyed Luke and Anita’s dog, “Barley”‘s company. They played all afternoon. haha! My little socialite chow chows! :o)
We’re spending the night in Medford, Oregon, and starting to head toward home now. Tomorrow we plan to see Dan and Lisa Neith; my forever-friends. :o) I hope to get hold of Aaron and Gwen too, to at least spend a little bit of time with them.
