Thank you so much & a prayer request

Hi!! Just a quick note to let everyone know that we are doing wonderful!! Thank you SO much for all of the sweet congratulations & emails!! =)
Drew slept some 3 hr. stretches last night and he is eating more with every feeding so it is going well. Friday night was kinda rough, he was up every hour but thanks to Mom and Crystal, Charlie & I got a nap Saturday evening so that helped!

I will be back to share some of his birth day with you but for now I am too tired to stay on here that long. I will try to have the pictures posted out of my camera later today or tomorrow. It's slow going around here and it may take me a little while. Just know that he is the sweetest cutest little boy that I have ever seen and he is already Mama's little man. And, Daddy is just over the moon with his little buddy. Claire takes her job as big sister very seriously and Lily thinks that he is her big baby doll!! =)

On a more serious note, last week, a family we know suffered a devastating loss. The husband, Chad, drowned and left behind his wife Laura and their two small children, a son and a daughter. Please pray for this family, fervently. I can't imagine the pain and devestation that she and the children are facing. I am sorry that I did not get it posted sooner so that we could all be praying sooner. But, I know that they will be needing prayers from now on through their lives. If you would do this, I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Love to all of you and Prayers for you and yours,

Charlie, Julie, Claire, Lily & Drew

So glad to know that baby Drew is doing well and already sleeping 3 hours at a time. I hope when mine gets here it is a good sleeper, since William never slept. Also, thank you for posting about Chad. It seemed so strange at church this morning with him not there. We really miss him a lot.
