All praise and thanks to God for the gift of our precious new son!!

I'm so so grateful to introduce you blog-official to our Peter Simon Lolek. He was born on Monday, July 16, the feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel at 5:18 p.m. after a three hour labor (but nearly two brutal weeks of prodromal and several false alarms!).  

At 9lbs. 1oz. he's by far our biggest baby yet!

Thank you so so much for all of you who prayed and wished us well. We are so blessed, so grateful, so full.

Birth photos and story to hopefully come soon!

  2. Praised be Jesus Christ! What a beautiful baby boy (and a perfect day to be born, too). God bless you and yours.

  3. What wonderful news!!! Congratulations on your 6th boy!!!! What a blessing. Your photos are beautiful and I love the one of you smiling down at him.

  4. Wonderful, wonderful news :-) Congratulations. Just love the photo of father and sons particularly. Six sons, what a joy, then again I have six sons, so rather partial.

  5. Congratulations! Also, he's got the best birthday ever ;)
