Happy Birthday to Jude!!!


Jude Ream Dawkins arrived this afternoon at 2:12pm in Louisville!!! To our amazement and surprise, he beat our high-end guesses and weighed in at 10lbs 15oz and is 22.5 inches long. I'm not sure the actual definition of "husky" but I think he may have surpassed even the husky status. We are overwhelmed with gratitude.



For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities - all things have been created through Him and for Him. He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together. Colossians 1:16-17

Wow Laura...that's a big boy for such a petite lady! Praise God for a healthy baby and mom. I'll be thinking and praying for you in the coming days as they can be challenging at times. If you ever need someone to talk to don't hesitate to call/write! Hope to meet baby Jude someday! Congrats to David too :) Oh, and write your birth story sometime when you get a chance :)

Congratulations, Laura and David! He is definitely a Dawkins! I want to know how the nurses in the hospital responded to such a hefty guy! When my 10 pounder was born, they were coming up from other floors to see the "three month old newborn!" What a wonderful blessing!
