It’s not every Christmas you receive the gift of a grandchild’s birth–and your first grandchild, at that!
Brodwin (pronounced with a long “o”), Brody for short, was born on Dec. 26, 2015, at 3:55 AM, much to the joy (and relief!) of his mother, Elissa, and his father, Layne. Of course, his grandparents and aunts and uncles are pretty excited, too!
Brody is beautiful (I knew he would be! 😉)! He is calm and alert, and looks intently at people and objects. He looks a lot like his parents, IMHO.
Brody did have to spend the night and next day in the neo-natal nursery due to a few issues, but seems to be doing well. He and his mom (and dad, who has been at the hospital most of the time) should be arriving home on the 28th.
It’s going to be ever so hard to leave for our return trip to Houston!!!
We are thankful for the gift of God’s Son, Jesus Christ, for His death and resurrection, and the gift of forgiveness of sin and for victory over the ultimate consequence for sin–life instead of death.
This year, we are also grateful for the gift of our son’s son, and pray that he too will one day receive the gift of forgiveness of sins and the blessing of eternal life!
We’re currently staying at Layne and Elissa’s, prepping for Christmas and more importantly waiting for Munchkin, Layne and Elissa’s baby, to arrive.
This morning Elissa, Danaya, Davison, and myself (Ben) played a game of Settlera of Catan. Davison pulled off a massive win with scoring 10 points while the rest of us were all sitting at 5 or 6. He had the help of the Longest Road, Largest Army, plus multiple 12 and 2 rolls.
