Naomi Jeanne Taylor

Naomi Jeanne Taylor, our fifth child (and fourth daughter!), was born this morning shortly before 9:00. Mother and child are doing well and resting comfortably in the birthing center.

7 lbs. 10 oz., 20.5 in.
Karis will be ten next month which means she's already a little mom. There's simply no way that Mary was 13 when Jesus was born! At least I hope three years won't make that much of a difference. Wow things are moving fast around here.
Here's the first shot of all five of our children together. See, five isn't so many! The older siblings are going crazy over Naomi, God is good.
I chose the name Naomi after having heard a series on Naomi preached by John Piper. Everyone in the church should listen to it and be healed. By the way, I meant Naomi and not Ruth. John shows that the book of Ruth is really all about God and his provision for Naomi. Jeanne is Leslie's middle name and Leslie's mother's first name.

Love to all.
