It's A Boy!!!

On a beautiful Sunday afternoon (11-30-08), God blessed Max and Jenny with a handsome baby boy. He was 8lbs, 4oz, and 21in long. He is a perfect picture of God's design in this world - everything down to the smallest detail so defined and beautiful. Mother, Father and Baby are doing well, though they are tired. :-) I am so in love with him that I could gaze into his miniature face all day long.
Everyone - Meet Graham Edward Max Parish!





This post was so long that I didn't spend time organizing photos, so the order of things is a little off...

OK -- explanation....
We found Jacob pressing his face up against this glass window and started taking pictures only to realize, much to our great amusement, that the window wasn't visible AT ALL in the photos which made Jacob look like his face was just formed like this!!!



Hugs all around

I told Steven that not many babies (except one's own) are beautiful ....but this baby truly is!! May we add our congratulations to everyone in the McCracken and Parish families.
Love,
Debbi Williams (for all)
