The First Baby in 2013

Isn't she gorgeous?  Although we can't claim any credit--it all goes to Jim and Monique!

Our third grandchild was born April 10--a beautiful, new little sister for Charis and Kol.

She weighed 7 lbs. 14 oz. and is 20.5" long.  We got to see her when she was 3 hours old.

Her name is Eden Lise Lea.

"Eden" means "garden of delight."
"Lise" means "consecrated to God."
And "Lea" means "messenger of good news."

She already knows exactly how to wrap Didi around her little finger!

And how to melt our hearts!

Those Dexter calves have a tough act to follow!


  1. Congratulations, Herb and Sue - and Jim and Monique! She's beautiful - what a precious gift.

    1. Thanks so much, Amy! Such a nice surprise to hear from you here! I'll have to post again when she has a name. :)

  2. What a sweet little blessing!

  3. Thanks, Barbara and Carrie. There's nothing like a tiny, precious newborn baby to remind us of God's goodness! Hopefully you can meet her this summer!
