Lil' Darling

:: Precious little [grand]daughter ::

:: Perfectly and wonderfully made ::

:: From fingertip to tiny toes ::

:: We never tire of watching you ::

:: Our heritage from the Lord ::

:: We love to share the happy news ::

:: Priceless sound ::

:: Time with Daddy ::

:: Peaceful sleep ::

:: Our cup of joy is overflowing ::

Many thanks to Anna Rehm for these pictures! Our family is greatly looking forward to meeting our precious Joanna Praise when we return home from our tour on March 10th. Until then, we're LOVING the technology of email, Skype, and photo texting! We're thrilled to know that both mommy and baby are doing really well!

"I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Marvelous are Your works,
And that my soul knows very well."
Psalm 139:14

AWWWWW!!! That's my little cowgirl! Talk about a Lil' Darling! Just wait tell you meet her! You won't be able to stop thinking, talking, and smiling about her! She's precious, and already such a personality! She loves to be talked to like her mother, and eats like her father or rather her Uncle Andrew for sure! Can't wait until you all get home, and get to meet her! Until then enjoy the pics!

Blessings, and Prayers,
Aunt Bekah

Thanks for sharing those pictures. They did a good job taking the photos. She is very precious! It's nice that you have the internet to do the video communication. Because that sure is second best to being in person!
