Thirty Days of Thankful – Day 8

Posted by Shelley on Nov 9, 2010 in Real Life Stories, kids |

My extended family has been blessed by four feet this year – we welcomed Nathaniel Hiller Smith on August 27th, 2010 and most recently Patrick Inman Moore on November 8th, 2010. Nathan is my nephew and is the star of my sister’s blog,, where you can see and celebrate all-things Nathan! Stacey does an excellent job chronicling his many “firsts” – it’s like reading a virtual baby book! Patrick Inman Moore is my second cousin, the kids third cousin and the son of my first cousin, Hamilton. He’s brand new, only a day old, so no blog yet. He is two months early and we are all amazed that he is already here and doing very well. What a blessing!

Thanks be to God for bringing life to Stacey and Ash, and to Hamilton and Chris, through their sons, Nathan Hiller and Patrick Inman. Thank you for showing us the mystery of life through birth, especially in the months of August and November this very year. Thank you God for allowing the sheer coincidence of new babies and the joy they bring to be a be part of your great story.
