Meet Penny's New Friends!

Lately there have been a lot of babies being born! As previously mentioned, my sister-in-law (Jonathan's brother's wife), Anne, and my brother-in-law Jedi just had my adorable little nephew, Ray Lawrence Johnson. Anne went through torture to have this little guy. I had to wait till I was discharged from the hospital in order to meet him, but it was immediately love at first sight! Here are some pictures of the little guy...

He has already been to his first Cub's game!!

His Uncle Jonathan absolutely adores him. Isn't this picture so precious?

A few days later one of the sweetest little girls on the planet was born. My friend Michelle has been such a faithful friend to me. She has taught me so much about loving my husband and is such a godly example. I love her!! We have been praying for a couple of years that God would bless her and her husband, Ryan with another baby (they have a son, Jack), and He did! This baby was a miracle baby in so many ways! She was born with both the cord tied in a knot and around her neck. Michelle also had one of the worst births I have ever heard of, but it was all worth it for beautiful Avery Elaine Anthony.

This is sweet Avery with her family! They are so cute!

Last, but most certainly not least, my best friend on the planet, Amy and her husband, John had an adorable little boy named James Ryan Carruthers. I am so sad that I haven't gotten the opportunity to meet him yet (they live in Washington) but it is going to happen soon! Amy is going to make the most incredible mom. She has always perfectly balanced me out. Her friendship has been one of my life's sweetest blessings. Amy had a total horror story c-section, but she is SO absurdly tough it didn't even phase her. I love this little man already! The way I see it, he will be my son-in-law some day :) Here he is...

Here is James and his excited daddy, John.

I don't know why God chose to give all three of them HORRIBLE labor and deliveries, but the way I see it, they already did the hard work so I'll just waltz on in and before I know it, it will all be over! :)

Thanks for meeting Penny's friends! She has been kicking me like crazy, I'm pretty sure because she is so exited to meet them! Especially, that cute little boy, James :)
