What a beautiful baby! He is so sweet and I am so happy for all of you, the pictures are fabulous. What a great name for this little man. God has given you all a special gift.

Congrats to Mandy and your son-in-law!

As I pray and give praises to God for this new little one I will also pray for your sister and your whole family with the loss of your brother-in-law. Wasn't he able to be with you recently, that was a good thing. May God bless your family through all of this.

DAVIS LUKE is about the coolest name - EVER! I dig it.

Congratulations on the new grandbaby. I was glad your daughter is doing well also. I am sorry to hear about your brother-in-law. I will be praying for your family

Karen said...

Valerie - He is just so beautiful! I am so happy for you and your entire family. I did pray for him and your daughter that God would see them through the birth of little baby Davis in a wonderful way. I am so happy to see that you are all together and happy.
I am thinking now of your sister and her family. How sad for them to lose their husband and father during the holidays. I hope that they will be able to think of the good times they had with him and that those thoughts will help them to heal.
I wish you the best in the upcoming days - it's so nice to have a new baby around. I would have another if my hubby would let me. My baby is now 1 1/2 and it makes me sad!!
Thinking of you all, Karen
