Over the past couple of months, several people have asked, through either comments or emails, if we would post a picture of each child individually and tell a little about each one. So today I will write a little about each of our wonderful blessings and post a picture below. I've also had many ask us about our day to day life...our schedule, activities, routines ect... So in the days ahead, I will also post about that as well. :)
Susannah Evelyn Lockwood
Susannah means "Lily"
Age- 3 next month
Susannah is our little flower. She is short, blond, and just floats and flutters around :) She loves to be anywhere Mommy and the girls are...cleaning is her favorite thing! Just give her a wet rag and she's off! She loves her dollies and she loves mud...and yes, she does mix the two quite often. :) She loves to talk and sing and loves to "read her Bible with Rebekah and Abigail in the morning." Susannah was born her in Mexican and she is the whitest, blondest, bluest eyed Mexican in these parts :) And oohhh the attention she gets :)
Nehemiah Emmanuel Lockwood
Nehemiah means "God has comforted"
Age: 20 m.
Nehemiah is the happiest little guy around. He is full of energy, loves to follow anyone and everyone around...even the dog! For as much as Susannah loves to talk, Nehemiah's vocabulary consists of 7 words now..."Mommy", "Daddy", "Yeah", "Uh-Oh", "Eh?", "Baby", and "Mo (more)". But he seems to communicate just fine as all his siblings translate for him :) Nehemiah loves to play with his rubber ball and he loves it when I make him a big house of blocks so he can knock it down. He also loves to climb things...he has no fear of heights! He was climbing Daddy's 10 ft. ladder long before he could walk (with supervision of course :) ). Nehemiah was also born down here and struggled with his health (lungs) for over a year, but we just rejoice and thank the Lord for how well he is doing now!
Eliseo Edward Lockwood
Eliseo (spanish for Elisha) means "My God is Salvation"
Age: almost 4 m.
Eliseo was just born this past April and we just can't hardly remember what it was like before he was here. Oh, how wonderful to have another baby in the house. He gets TONS of love, cuddles, kisses, and snuggles from Mommy, Daddy, and 10 big brothers and sisters. Being number 11 is really pretty great...just ask him. Eliseo was running a fever and not feeling too hot when I was snapping pictures, but he is almost always smiling when he is awake. He loves to be held more than anything (wonder why that is??? :) ), but he also likes to lay on his play mat with his toys hanging down...he just smiles and giggles at them...it's so cute! He just discovered his hands last month and can keep himself entertained just staring at them. Eliseo was born down here as well and spent the first few days of his life in the NICU with breathing problems, but he's been fine since.
Oh, each child is so fearfully and wonderfully made and such a blessing and joy!!!!!!! Thank you Lord!
