Sweet Baby David

I know that y'all have been waiting (patiently... hehe) for some pictures. My apologies.... my hands have been a little full :) The last week has just flown by... kind of. David is doing great! I can't believe he's a week old. He's such a good baby.... just a little demanding when it comes to feeding time. The twins absolutely adore him and want to hold him and sing to him (poor kid is going to get real tired of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star... it's the only song they sing). It's been 4 yrs since I've had a newborn, so it's taking a little time to get adjusted again.... but, definitely easier with just one this time.
For those of you that don't know, David was named after my father-in-law. He's an incredible man, Christian, father, and grandfather. We are blessed to have him in our lives. We love you Paw Paw. His middle name, Ray, comes from my side of the family. Both my grandfathers are named Ray (my mom's dad was Raymond and my dad's dad was Raymundo) and I had a sweet Uncle Ray who passed away when I was pregnant with the twins. Ray also means "King" in Spanish (though it's spelled R-e-y)... like King David from the Bible. Also a strong man -- a shepherd boy that slew the giant, Goliath. King David was also a warrior and the writer of Psalms. And, most importantly.... King David was a man after God's own heart.

Of course here's proud Paw Paw and Grams. My mom was in the delivery room and got to see this sweet boy come into the world. My sister-in-law, Denise, was also there taking pictures (and helping out .... thanks Neesey).

Patti loves to help change David's diaper. She sings to him (Twinkle Twinkle Little Star of course) while we change it. Such a sweet big sister.

Calloway's also loving his new brother. He wants to hold and carry him so bad.... I really have to keep an eye on David when he's around. But, he's learning to be sweet and gentle. I have a feeling David is going to be one tough baby.
