He Is here!



He is here! The iPad and I are having fights, so this must be brief....he was born at 1:20 pm and weighed 6 pounds, 2 .4 ounces and was 19.25 inches long!

He is beautiful and looks so much like his brother, we are just so amazed.

Tried to email/fb/text as best we could...technology limitations and aggravations all day. Friend if you want--- Lori Ennis and my email is johnandlori@md.metrocast.net. Feel free to defriend if and when you like...it is just easier for me to accept a request rather than find...I couldn't find a few people and feel badly about it! Sorry!

More when I'm not on the iPad. Thank you all for the warm thoughts and prayers!!!! They humble us in a way I can't begin to explain!!!

Welcome, sweet Samuel Luke!!!

  1. Couldnt be happier for you! He is PERFECT! I guess you were the hot topic of conversation among the little people at Greenview Knolls today, Mady said a bunch of kids were talking about Mrs. Ennis having her baby today. ALL of your children love you so much lori. Enjoy this precious precious time. Wish I could give you a hug but this will have to do {{{HUG}}}

  4. Lori,and family!

    I am just tickled for all of you!! I can not believe either how much he looks like his big brother! What a special connection they have already! Take it all in, smell Luke, count this perfect 10 fingers and toes. change a diaper just for fun! Oh, and from one 2 c-section Mama to another, make sure you hold a pillow into your tummy when you laugh, because that will hurt for weeks!! Also the third day of heeling is always the worst, so pace your self! I am just elated for all of you!!
    Thank you, Lord, Thank you!!-Cynthia Stewart! PS Working on a special gift for this very cool theme in his room!

  16. Deni Fay and I had dinner together last night and she showed me the picture of Sweet Luke. He is PERFECT and you are right...I think he looks just like Matthew! I hope you, John and your new miracle are doing great! I am so excited for you!!

  18. CONGRATULATIONS, JOHN AND LORI!!!!
    Luke is so precious and perfect! God is so good!

    Btw, do you blog from safari on your iPad or do you use an app? I'm just curious bc there's a lot you can't do using blogger online bc iPad does not support Flash Player (Thanks, Steve Jobs!)
    I feel your pain on that one! BlogPress has a free version that I use when I'm posting pictures to my blog from my iPad. Not the greatest, but easier to deal with!

    Now, get some rest! Praying for a speedy recovery!

    Bless you and Protect you,
    Patricia

  19. I thought he looked remarkably like his big brother too! And that's only based on pictures ... of course his mama would know in a second how similar her boys are. I can never get over how one second they are inside the belly and the very next they are changing everything. Thanks for coming and rocking the boat, Luke! So many people love you and did "happy Luke dances" the minute you were born! xoxoxo

  28. Lori,
    You don't know me, but I've been following your blog for almost a year, I came across you from a website my daughter had posted on her blog(she is also battling infertility issues going on six years) I am absolutely thrilled for you and John, and I know that Matthew is grinning from ear to ear at his new little brother!!! So happy for ya'll!

  30. Congrats Lori!!! I know it's all so SO bitter sweet. Let the distractions come, and give in to the overwhelming moments. Don't be afraid to cry for Matthew as you hold him close. Love you!

  31. It sounds cliche to say that every baby is a miracle, but you and John know, from the deepest parts of your souls, how true that is.

    I broke down as soon as I read that Yellow Fish would not be staying. Tears of joy lasted all day when you announced that Miney was. I checked Facebook repeatedly, expecting to be a mess when I saw the update with Luke's safe arrival. Strangely, no tears (though they came when I saw the photos). Smiling ear-to-ear, wanting to happy-dance, squeezing my own little boy out of excitement, breathing a bit easier just because it was confirmed...yes. But my heart had had complete confidence that you and Luke would be fine. I prayed, of course...but unlike other times spent waiting for you to share news, there was never any uncertainty. God had already placed so many amazing people in Luke's life; they would make sure you would all come through this OK. I hope that you and John had that same peace, remembering "this one she will keep," as you walked through the hospital doors that morning.

    I look forward to your and John's versions of Luke's Story and seeing an obnoxious amount of photos of your very handsome son (who looks much like his big brother, especially in his mouth and chin!). Love to all as you start this chapter of your story.

  35. AMEN AMEN AMEN!!!! Couldn't be happier and can't wait to see more picutures. I'm assuming mom is doing well also:) No worries on updating, I'm sure we all understand how precious of a time this is for your family and I think I can speak for everyone here, we just appreciate you letting us all in during this time. May God continue to bless and keep you all safe and healthy as you transition home.

    xoxo

  37. Lori,
    I know that you are sooo busy with a new baby, but we need pictures!!! I found you on facebook, but don't want to "friend" you because you don't know me, but I really do know you, and like I've said before, I've been following for a really long time, and I don't want you to think I'm a stalker...LOL! I guess I will patiently wait for pics!
    Congratulations again, SOOO HAPPY FOR YOU!!!
