Ezekiel James is here!

So tiny! So quiet! Welcome Ezekiel James. Melinda, stop being so gorgeous three hours post delivery!!

Matthew and Melinda had baby #3 on Monday!

 (I went to Omaha to watch the big boys for them.
I didn't want to tell on the blog because Katie was home alone most of the time...and the door might be open.  So I had to be kind of quiet about it. )

Doesn't Melinda look fantastic three hours post delivery?
That's just not right!

Ezekiel is very little. Burping time is a good time to see his sweet face and funny expressions. This is nearly a smile :o)

I see a little smile :o)

He loves when I kiss him!! #asher

Here I am with Asher.  He is four now.  I am kissing him and he is trying to get away!
He was very sweet with the new baby.

There we go. All three boys up today. Patty cake with daddy. #matthew #malachi

Malachi is 18 months old.  He wanted to touch everything in the hospital room and push the baby bassinet around.  He is a beautiful busy boy!

Ezekiel is quiet and sleepy.
He weighed seven pounds even but looks so small....especially compared to his big brothers.

My friend Bonnie who also has three little boys told me something sweet she says when people tell her that her hands are full.

She says her heart is fuller!

I'm so proud to be Yaya to these three precious boys and their remarkable parents.

How I look forward to seeing the little person Ezekiel becomes.

More pictures tomorrow!

Encourage one another,

    Congratulations! As I was pulling up your page, I was thinking I hope all is well with Donna & how strange it would be if she hadn't updated since last Friday. I said a quick prayer for you & your family that all was ok... then the page loaded & it turns out all is FABULOUS. =)

  13. Radiant Melinda and darling Ezekiel!! Gorgeous eyes on those Boucher boys.

    My Zack and Rex are 18 months apart and are best buds at 23 and 21 1/2. Let's hear it for boys close in age! It takes a lot work for Mom and Dad, but MAN! is it worth it. Have fun, M&M.

    How is that I missed that Melinda and Matthew were expecting? QLCS Slacker!

    YaYa is the best name. Do you have the rights to it, or will you share? Not that I need a grandparent name, but I like to plan ahead (-:

    Welcome to a family full of love, dear Ezekiel.


    1. You may use Yaya. My sister Nancy and I both use it. It's Greek :o)
      We were much more formal in my family.
      Full. Names.
      Grandma Glyman
      Grandma Hansen

  14. Matthew and Melinda choose the very best names!

  15. Beautiful little boys! Glad to hear that that they (and you!) are okay. I read the blog daily, and I worry when I don't see you post.
