Fun Kid Pictures…

This past winter I didn’t get many pictures of the kids… life was busy and I just didn’t get around to pulling out the camera and snapping some pictures. I hope I won’t regret missing those memories too much! Anyways, since the weather is nice now and I have a little more free time over the next week and a half I might post some more pictures… if you get tired of seeing my cute little kiddos, just let me know 😉

Happy Threesome!

Titus was sleeping while we ate, but because he is so cute, I thought I'd post this picture of him practicing his growl (well, he was really yawning, but we pretended it was a growl!).

We are excited to announce the birth of our son

Titus Josiah Dubina

April 18th ~ 7 lbs. 2 oz ~ 21″

Titus Josiah Dubina 4-18-14

Our prayer for our son is similar to that of Paul’s for Titus in the Bible:

“Likewise, urge the younger men to be self-controlled. Show yourself in all respects to be a model of good works, and in your teaching show integrity, dignity, and sound speech that cannot be condemned, so that an opponent may be put to shame, having nothing evil to say about us.” Titus 2:6-8

We pray that the Lord would convert Titus’ heart at a young age and that he might be a young man who lives for the Lord. We are so blessed to be his parents!

Here are a few pictures of before and after Titus was born:

My sister, Rachel, came over to help us out several times over the past few weeks. She is such a joy to be around and very capable of helping me with the children.

And as you can see, Titus loved sleeping in her warm arms.
