Last night, my wonderful and amazing sister in law, Elizabeth, gave birth to her fifth boy, making him the 18th grandchild on my husband's side of the family. (My side has a lot of catching up to do. Actually, it's pretty much a lost cause. I only have two sisters, Dyana has one little girl, and they probably only want to have two or three. My sister Kristin is not married, and doesn't really think she wants to ever have children of her own, but definitely plans to adopt one day. Rabbit trail...sorry!)

Baby boy is as yet, unnamed. He was born at home around 10:15 last night and weighed 10lbs. A full pound lighter than her last baby. Yep, lighter! She definitely wins the award. One of Glen's sisters has normal sized babies, and his cousins have teeny 5lb babies (at term), but the other three of us have bigger sized babies, but Elizabeth blows us out of the water. She's amazing.

Congratulations, Ben and Elizabeth, on a new little baby boy! It is a privilege for all of us to be in a family with you, and a you are both a huge blessing and inspiration to us all. You are wonderful parents, and the fruit of your relationship with the Father is seen in your lives, as well as the lives of your sweet boys. We love you tremendously!

Awwww- I'll have to send her congratulations!!!!

"How can it be a large career to tell other people’s children about arithmetic, and a small career to tell one’s own children about the universe? How can it be broad to be the same thing to everyone, and narrow to be everything to someone? No; a woman’s function is laborious, but because it is gigantic, not because it is minute. I will pity Mrs. Jones for the hugeness of her task; I will never pity her for its smallness." ~GK Chesterton
