Colten Lee Adams

Colten Lee Adams made his arrival at 12:26 PM on Monday, August 30. He was only 4 days past his due date - which was better than his big brother who made me wait for 8 days after his due date!

We are so excited that he is finally here - and I must admit that I still have moments when I can't hardly believe that God has given us this miracle. After four years of longing for another baby and thinking it would never happen, I feel incredibly blessed that God has given me the desire of my heart!

And not only did He give me another baby, but He gave me an easygoing one at that! In fact, I remember my mom telling me after Tanner was born that I had not experienced a real baby because Tanner was so easy. Well, it looks like I still haven't experienced a "real" baby because at least so far, Colten has been very easy as well. God knows how much we can handle - and apparently He knows I need easy!!

Here are some pictures from the first 11 days of Colten's life:

Oh my goodness, he is so precious!! Congratulations!!! And we must have the same taste in names, because Colten is one of my fave names too, lol. And how did you get 2 easygoing babies???? :) I had 2 challenging babies, lol!

He is so beautiful, Jen!! Good things come to those who wait. :) You and Chris are so blessed. I esp. love the picture of the brothers!

Behold, children are a blessing of the LORD. ~Psalm 127:3

I can't wait to meet him!

Although I haven't got to meet Coltan yet the day he was born I felt great love in my heart. Nothing in life is better than new life and especially when it's a grandchild. My thoughts were with Tanner as he is a special gift to me and I know that Coltan will be the same. My great neice had a son 3 months ago and his name is also Coltan. Love to all
