Jackson Caerden Savage

Here is our newest family member. I just have a few pictures to include since most of the pictures from the hospital are from my mom's and sister's camera. I need to get them from them to add.

What a blessing to have Jack with us. We are grateful that he is healthy and beautiful. Our Heavenly Father has given us another beautiful spirit.

I am amazed to see the love that we have for him already. The girls and Charlie are always wanting to hold and kiss him. I had a hard time keeping them away from Jack this week while they were sick. It has been a long week. Glad that they are almost all healthy again.

I am blown away when I realize that I have 5 children. What a daunting task to raise Christian children in our society now. We definetly will need to rely on the Lord to guide us as we raise these beautiful children.

Even with this new beautiful baby, my heart is reminded that Walker is not with us. I have even called Jack "Walker". I know that they are 2 completely different spirits. I still miss Walker very much and maybe more since Jack was born. I know that my children miss Walker also. Grace stated that she is worried that we will forget about Walker now that we have Jack(another baby). Charlie was worried that if Jack had to go to the hospital for jaundice, the hospital would keep him forever.

I pray that I will be the mother that I need to be for all of my children.
I pray that I will always enjoy my children and they will know how much I love each of them.

Superbaby Savage is Here

Our new bundle of joy arrived on Sunday. Of course, he was scheduled to arrive today. It was a surprise to wake up yesterday and realize that we needed to get to the hospital fast. My water broke around 6:15ish and he arrived at 7:50 at the hospital including the 30 min-ish drive. It was amazingly fast and uncomplicated.

I am so thankful for all the prayers. I also give thanks for a healthy baby boy. It is amazing the love we feel for him since part of us never imagined go this road after Walker.

He is absolutely perfect. I will post pictures soon. He still does not have a name - almost decided.
