Blazing Baby update

Baby Blaze is 8 and a half pounds now! :) He's growing up so quickly, so cute and so sweet! (He is a heavy drinker, which is a good thing if you know what I mean!)

We had his dedication at church last Saturday night. The prayers and prophetic words spoken over him were just so beautiful! I can't wait to get the cd so I can write them all down. I do remember that he was called "a worshipper" and "a warrior" and "a bright light in the Kingdom"!
I love his name... "David Blaze". It just really suits him, and it seems to sum up some things that are going on right now in the Spirit.
Here's a picture from his dedication. Andrew and I couldn't be happier! Friends feel free to leave prayers and words for us or David Blaze in the comment section! :)

He's more than a month old, and not even due yet!

Our beautiful baby boy, David Blaze, was born at 8:34 a.m., on July 16, 2006. He was 34 weeks gestation. He weighed 4 lbs and 11 ounces, and was 18 inches long. His weight did go down to 3lb 4 ounces (which is exactly what Jesse weighed at 28 weeks, so I had a moment of re-lived panic) but then he started gaining steadily a couple days later and is doing so well now! He's up to 7 pounds as of today. He's such a beautiful boy, he's had two offers of marriage already... one from a little cutie in the icu with him, Perry Nightingale McH., who was also 6 weeks early and had a very close due date, and from another, older woman (who is almost 4 months old!) named Catherine Deborah Anne M., who is also too cute for words and was a few weeks early. Catherine lives on the other side of the country though!

We are so happy and feel so very blessed to have this sweet little man come down from heaven and join our family! Jesse and Ivy are thrilled, and are such loving, tender caregivers to their new little brother. Here's a picture!
