hello, beckett kol!

we have anxiously been awaiting the arrival of a very special person and on thursday i got the call, it was go time. since experiencing childbirth myself i can't hold back tears when i know someone is about to meet their little bundle for the first time. this time around it was my bestie's turn, and i was a sobbing mess. we set up camp in the waiting room, paced back and forth in the hall, and prayed our hearts out, all. night. long.

on friday, january 7 at 7:15 am matt and cortney welcomed beckett kol pennebaker into the world. weighing in at a whooping 8 pounds 4 ounces and a perfect 22 inches long. he is amazing!

i was blessed to share this event with matt, cortney & their families. everyone is head over heals for beckett. i mean, you would be a monster if you weren't.

i am eager to watch our sons grow up together. to see what they have to teach each other. beckett seems sooo little now, but in a couple years he and coen will be running around causing all kinds of havoc. beautiful, beautiful havoc that is.


  1. You must have felt so honored to be there. What a loyal friend you are. This is beautiful!

  2. i am so glad you made it there in time to cherish courtney and matts adventure as she was there for wes and you! they will truly be best buddies soon! loves to all of you, mama
