Stephenson Family Ties The Barn Burnt Down
And Now I See The Moon
The world will give you that once in a while,
a brief timeout; the boxing bell rings and
you go to your corner, where somebody dabs
mercy on your beat- up life.

Beckham is HERE!! Hes 6 weeks early...and he's doing fantastic!!  My visit was cut short in Salt Lake, as soon as I learned Natalie was in labor.  (I was more than happy to jump on a shuttle and leave the cold!!!)  I was thrilled to learn that Beckham is the biggest of Joe and Natalie's babies!!  He weighed in at 6 lbs 6 ozs!! Way to go Natalie!!! 18 1/2 inches long! Mommy says he looks just like Logan when he was born!!  I say he's adorable...and rosy pink in color with fuzzy dark hair and and its my guess is he wont be long in the NICU!!!  How grateful we are for the many important and bounteous blessing we enjoy in this good family!!  Logan was quite anxious to meet his new brother...but in reality he was a little hesitant to touch him...the tubes and wires and whistles put him off a bit; but he was happy to sing him a song through the opening in the incubator!!  What sweet dear boys we've been blessed with!!  
Happy Day!!!
Congratulations Natalie and Joe, Logan and Liam!!  A perfect new brother has  joined you in the fun!!!!
