The Cooks ‘13
Merry Christmas to you all and a happy new year. We love each one of you and want you to know we cherish you all in our lives. We have grown closer together this year as a family in Christ and we feel very blessed as we make new friends and love each other.
We have been very busy with the addition of another beautiful child: Graham Fielding Cook, Born April 9th. He was premature, but he came safe and sound. Not only is he the joy of the family but also is the happiest baby either one of us has ever seen. We love him and can’t wait for all of you to meet him!
Isla is having the time of her life as she is getting more and more friends. It seems every other day she is either with her “Child of God” friends (nursery) or her cousins. She loves her friends and is very sweet and kind to them. She wants all of you to know that she loves her Mommy very much. She has a beautiful and thoughtful heart. Almost every night daddy plays to her “Song of a bird”
(I know my Heavenly Father Loves me) and she tells him after each time, “Daddy- I love you.” It’s some of the most precious moments of my life.
As for Aly and I we are more in love than ever. We realize now that life is just not going to get any easier. After a scare with Graham that made him come a little too early- a few complications after his birth- and some other issues later in the year, we know that time is essential with each other. Aly is the most precious thing in my life and I pledge my love and devotion to her and to our God and King Jesus Christ.
This Christmas season we would like to wish you all a joyous and happy holiday. We love our Lord and Savior and are trying to teach our kids to pray and keep the commandments. We have been truly blessed in our lives and we love you all so much.
Justin, Aly, Isla and Graham
