What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

Happy Birthday Riddle

What has.......

... eyelashes peeking?



... fingernails, too long?



... a most amazing cyclops brow?



... deliciously plump lips?



... watching eyes?



... hair, every square inch?



... feet canyons, Grand



... and a very revealing anklet?





The Newest Newman!!
The biggest little procrastinator you ever did see.

Meet
Judah Benjamin Newman,
the shine in our eyes.


He was born yesterday. I am home now, and exhausted, so the birthstory will wait for another day~but no worries, it will only last about seven minutes anyway.

Be prepared to squeeze your knees and hold your breath when you hear how big this not-so-little guy is.


We are in love. Lots of it.

You say he was born yesterday, but his bracelet says the 1st. So, he and Corynn share a birthday?

He's just gorgeous, Rebecca! I think he looks like Matt. I'm sure you are all just so pleased, and SEE! your pregnancy didn't last forever after all! :-)

Congrats Rebecca!! He's adorable. Hope you're feeling spry. Can't wait for the deets. :) And I'm totally there with you on ginormous babies. My last one was a Goliath.

Kate said...

I've been a faithful lurker ever since my dear friend Breezy introduced me to your blog over a year ago... It is always such a blessing to see your love for your family that shines so strongly through everything you post. Well, today I had to leave my lurk-dom to tell you how absolutely precious your little Judah is! I can't stop looking at these sweet photos of him. :) God Bless!

Leah S said...

When I saw the ears, I knew it had to be a boy! ;) Congrats Matt, Rebecca, Corynn, Andrew and Adele!!!

Rebecca said...

Tracy~ that is SO FUNNY! I didn't notice that! Yes-he was born on Corynn's birthday, very early in the morning. The night nurse wrote all of our bands wrong and then corrected them all (except that one, apparently) because she had started her shift on the 1st and mistook the day.

You are Miss Observant!

The "Z" family said...

Rebecca,
As with everyone else, I've been checking in a few times a day anxiously awaiting your news. I'm so happy for you!!! 2 dear girls, and now, 2 dear boys. Best buddies, Lord willing, in the years to come. How wonderful for you all!!! May God grant you lots of rest in the next few weeks.

Congratulations and much love!!!

Congratulations Newman Family on your newest blessing!! What a beautifully plump baby boy--so perfect! Love the name (a good friend is the Grandma of a Judah)! May you wallow in your love for him forever. God is good!
Blessings, Ulli

Stacy said...

Oh my goodness, he is the most beautiful, sweet, precious baby I've ever seen. And really, I mean that.

I see a pattern here... girl, boy, girl, boy... Andrew must be sooo excited to have a little brother! And the name is perfect. :)

Amity said...

wonderful news, beautiful baby--congrats!!

Tracy said...

I figured that something along those lines had happened, but then sleep deprived mommies CAN get details mixed up. It was a curiosity to me since I told you that my brother and I share a birthday. I'm happy for your two, who get to do the same! It's a wonderful thing over the years!

Oh! How Handsome is he?! Congratulations Momma, you enjoy your newest blessing!

Regina said...

Awe! What a beautiful little boy you have there! I bet Andrew was beaming for a little brother to play with. What an awesome present for God to give him a precious baby brother to play with! I bet he's still just radiant and jumping up and down (along with the rest of the family).

How are you doing sweetie? I hope you're doing alright. Post when you can. What beautiful pictures!

Thank you for sharing!

Regina

Bonnie said...

Oh yes, a weekend of sweet babies!
He is a darling, but I knew you only make darling babies;-)
Can't wait to hear the story- is the " it'll only take about 7 minutes" a clue?
Rest well dear Mama (and family!)
Much love to you all-
Bonnie

Congratulations!!! We now share a birthday!!! I was also born on this day 46 yrs ago. It is a good day to be born. Enjoy!!!!

Elisha said...

So fun to see both you and Bonnie having little boys so close together!

Judah is a top pick for names if our littlest proves to be a boy!

Hope you are getting some rest!

Elisha

~~Anne said...

Congratulations to all of you!! And welcome, little Judah! (although, I guess you said he wasn't TOO little) :)

He's beautiful, Rebecca. Anxiously looking forward to his birth story and more pictures.

So very happy for you - and that you now have 2 of each!!!:)

Alisa said...

Congratulations to the entire Newman family!! What a blessing!!

Dana said...

Congratulations! Was he born on Corynn's birthday??? How special to have a baby brother share your own special day! He's beautiful! (Is the bracelet right? I mean, I know he's a boy, but is the date right?)

Blessings--
Dana

nytesong said...

Congratulations!! =)

Amy said...

Ah, it figures the two days I skip looking at your blog, you post about Smooch.
WELCOME little boy...and I love his name!
My friend I mentioned in a previous comment is still pregnant...I'm pretty sure you both must've been about on the same schedule (well, not anymore, obviously) and to quote her little daughter... "I think your baby is trapped in there, Mommy, I do."
haha. :-D
But congratulations to you! I'm sure you're happy to have the kid out. :-)) glad everything went well, and get some good rest.

Amy said...

Oh, and I guess Corynn did get a baby for her birthday? :-)

Mrs. MK said...

Words can't express my joy at seeing these pictures and a *sweet smile* at his perfect name. God has answered your prayers mightily, praise his name for your healthy little boy!

Jennifer said...

He is so precious. YOu are so blessed. I am happy for you.

Michelle G said...

I am so very happy for you :)
What a total blessing.
Welcome to the world Judah :)

You're in our thoughts and prayers :)

Terri said...

He is so beautiful and perfect. Those are some amazing shots. Congratulations on your newest addition. I think you are amazing!

Anonymous said...

Happy Birthday dear Judah!!!! Welcome to a beautiful boy! I tried to see the grams on that bracelet, only can't make it out! Checked out 613 grams but that couldn't have been it! Can hardly wait for your birthing story...hugs from mumofeight

Sylvia said...

Oh. your smooch is the sweetest baby ever. And the name is really good too. All your children have lovely names.

You are good at giving hand made gifts, but a baby for a birthday present ? That is the best present ever. It's like the best thing you could have ever made for Corynn for her very own. Smooch is one clever baby to make an entrance !!

Now comes the hard part. What will you do to top it ? And what about the other children ? I would want a baby for my birthday too if my sister got one for hers ;)
