Congratulations to our friends, Mariano and Becky on the birth of their beautiful son, Enzo David. He was born on April 2. He weighed 8 lbs. 4 oz and was 21 inches long.

I can still remember the day that Mar and Beck came to our house for dinner. We all sat down, and Joel asked Mar to pray. Mariano said, "Ok, but first we want to tell you something." Mar looked at Beck and she was just grinning so big. He said, "Do you want to tell?" She said, "You can." He said, "No, you tell." She laughed and said, "You." This went back and forth until I said, "Well SOMEBODY better tell us!!!" Mariano broke out into an enormous smile and said, "God is blessing us with a child." We all screamed and hugged! What a happy day that was!

He is a blessing from God for sure! Look at this beautiful face! So perfect!

Mariano and Becky are heading to the mission field of Uruguay. They have just begun deputation with this sweet little guy. Pray for them as they are travelling.

Mar and Beck, we always knew you'd make the best parents! We're so happy that he's finally here! Congratulations again! We love you guys!

Congratulations to them! He is so precious! The last picture cracks me up, normally you see the mommy in a hospital bed and daddy leaning down for the picture, not the other way around. :)

You are so right. I never even realized how very funny that looked until you mentioned it. I laughed so hard when I looked at it again. He looks as though he is recovering from a very difficult birthing experience. I guess I must have had a pretty quick recovery to be doing deep knee bends and posing for photos.
