We couldn't be any happier to announce the arrival of Zadok David.  He came on January 27, an impressive 9 lb. 2 oz and his little hand next to his head, ready to greet the world.  If you haven't met him yet, Jessica took some great pictures at the hospital. 

He has filled my heart with joy in so many unexpected ways, just as the L-rd promised that he would.  Zadok means "my righteousness is G-d", and we're looking forward to G-d revealing to him (and to us through him) a deep understanding of what it means to be clothed in the righteousness of our Messiah.

Eric chose David for him after he was born.  It was on our short list, but he looked at little Zade and knew he was a David, "beloved".

One of the most frequent questions I'm asked is how Eliana is responding to him.  She's doing great.  She doesn't like him to cry, urging us to go pick him up.  And she likes to give him "big" hugs.  We're working on baby-sized hugs, for Zade's sake.  Here's a video from the first time she held him.

His arrival brought so much joy to my heart. Maybe that's how our new season will go, you think? Lots of learning but a lot of joy too...I could handle that! He's precious. I love you all.
