And Baby Makes Four!!


We are so overjoyed to announce the safe  arrival of our second son, Elliot Rex Maxwell! He was born safely at home at 3:30am today, June 19th, and he tipped the scales at 8lb  4oz and 22inch long. I am doing great and have been absolutely loving getting to rest at HOME today with my guys!
It was  a whirlwind labor—hard and intense but fast compared to Axton’s! I can’t wait to share more with you all. Thankyou so so much to each and every one of you who were praying for us! The prayers were truly felt and Jesus answered in such a beautiful way. I am so grateful for the redeeming grace of little Elliot’s story!

Stay tuned for more to come!

  10. Congratulations! I commented on Axton's birth story and told you my story but I also ended up in the hospital with my first after an attempted home birth. I've since had 3 home births and it's SOOO nice to be at home right after the birth. My middle two weighed the same as Elliot but my fourth boy born 5 weeks ago weighed 9 lb 14 oz. It's amazing what God made your body to do and I felt pretty normal afterwards in spite of naturally delivering a 10 lb baby. His labor was pretty fast. Will be interesting to read this one's birth story. Take care!!!
