4 Pounds 7 ounces!

Kyle's first try in the bouncy seat!

Kyle taking his bottle!
Kyle snoozing in his new room - Level 2!
It is hard to give you a perspective on how big he is - he loves to sleep on his tummy - we will have to stop that when he comes home!

I am crazy busy these days - I will catch up with my journaling - but I knew I could not show up to MDO tomorrow without pics of the little lion!  too cute huh!

WOW - I think he's even more beautiful than the last set of pictures...He is so precious!! I could just hug & snuggle him for hours!!
J & K - God IS hearing us! HE is going to continue to grow & heal Kyle & I believe with all my heart that the Lord has something so unbelieveably awesome in store for your precious Kyle.
Again, this encourages me to stay on my knees for Kyle. Thank you so much for those pictues. He is absolutely beautiful. I think I will put him on my pc screen (I don't know what it's called in computer terms - but you know what I mean :o)
I love you for allowing me to journey this road with you.
Please know you are loved & prayed for with so much joy, it's truly an honor to witness the great power of our Lord through Kyle's young life.
You are a blessing to my every day!

Oh my goodness! I haven't checked in awhile, and I am blown away to see little Kyle, not so little anymore, in a bouncy seat! What a joy. My son, Luke, went crazy in his bouncy seat! Our Bible study group has been studying James, and what a testimony it is to see this trial produce endurance in your lives. I'm so thankful for each milestone you and Kyle have conquered. Rejoicing with you!

Kelly - he looks AWESOME!! Wow - what a difference 3+ months can make. I'm so happy for you guys!

The picture of you feeding him brought back so memories for me. I would get so nervous feeding Max because I was always scared he would Brady or that he would get choked. I wish I could have relaxed and enjoyed it more. :)

God is good, and is always faithful. Kyle knows him, and the fact that he's growing like he is only continues to reflect on God's unstoppable power. Still thinking of you guys all the time.

Our Story

This story begins with 5 people. John, Kelly, Jadon, Jack, and Kyle (he is only 23 weeks old... and he is still safely tucked away in his mommy's belly) In an hour's time Kyle made his way into the world. 1 pound, 3 ounces- 11 and a half inches long. This family will never be the same. This child is a warrior. He has the spirit of a Lion, and more courage than a whole pride. He is fierce, and fearless- and he is teaching us to fear the Lord- and to believe that God is in our midst and healing even now. Join us as pray, as we praise, and as we journey through this life as lovers of God and all His glory.

Kyle is in the March of Dimes Promo!
