Our new Grandchild is born!

December 7, 2014

IT IS A BOY! Yes our daughter Kara gave birth to Ivan Nicolas Moseley on November 16, 2014 at 7:48 am. He weighed in at 8lbs 3oz and was 21 inches long. Kara’s husband Nicolas was right by her side for the entire event and to help care for both afterwards. They were able to have the home birth that they had planned and all went very well.

A picture that his dad took right after his birth.


Kent and I got to meet Ivan when he was about 10 hours old. What a privilege!! Here Kent is holding him.


Two days old and you can see how thrilled we are to have another grandson. He is just adorable! Of course this grandma is a bit prejudice too! Hah!


Their midwife got this picture of the new family


His dad Nick holding him.

We also were able to help them out with cleaning, cooking, washing clothes etc and helping to care for Ivan and just enjoying seeing them adapt to their new role as parents. We loved that!

Kara and Ivan


A few days later we  were able to get a picture of us both holding Ivan.

Ivan is a dear and we think he looks like Nick.

I think he looks like he wants to say something here…So sweet!IMG_1760

If you would like…you can see Nick’s video of the entire pregnancy at:

You can see what we were doing the past few weeks. We did get to have Thanksgiving with Kara and Nick and then when Ivan was 2 weeks old, they felt they could release us to go back to our normal work. So…we said a sad goodbye but not without kissing our Ivan and Kara and Nick and knowing that God and their friends and church family will help them now if they need. Of course we know they are great parents and now are learning how to follow God in this new adventure.

May God bless you today as He has blessed us!

Grateful to God,
