having two is not for the faint of heart

Let me just say that i can't even feel bad for not blogging since June 23. Our life has been tossed upside down and shaken up. In a good way, but none the less....... :-P We welcomes sweet Timothy Stephens Sharp into our family on July 14th at 10:27 a.m. weighing 7 lbs 9 oz and measuring 19 3/4" long. He was born healthy and happy and continues to blow our minds at how much he has grown! He already now weighs 9 lbs 13 oz and is the apple of his big brother's eye! Chip just adores being a big brother and loves nothing more than to kiss all over him all the time! We are trying to find ourselves in a routine and to establish a new normal and that is proving to be more difficult than we could have imagined! Stephens seems to be a grumpy baby during the days, but, thankfully, is a really great sleeper at night. We are beginning to wonder if he, too, has food allergies like Chip and I have begun to remove foods from my diet to see if we can get it under control. I find myself with waves of emotions - good and bad - toward this change in my life and staying above water some days, seems to be all I can do. We are beyond blessed, though, and are very aware of that. He is a beautiful child, a gift from God, and a joyful new life. Please continue to keep us in your prayers as we adjust to being parents of two and a big brother! Enjoy the pictures below!
