Introducing: Nathan Timothy

I’d like you to meet someone!

Nathan Timothy surprised us by arriving three weeks early – just in time to be the first baby of 2014 in Walla Walla!


7lbs, 2oz

20 inches long

8:16pm, 01/01/14

We are both doing very well.  Image

Nathan is a popular guy, adored by all of his older siblings. 


In fact, Kaylie is pretty sure that he belongs to her.Image



When we called home to tell the kids that Nathan had been born, Jesse said, “I don’t really care for that name.  May I call him John?”  Now, he says he has gotten used to the name and is o.k. calling him Nathan or Nate.


The “first baby of the year” gets a lot of attention in our community.  Our local newspaper ran a front-page article about him, which you can read here:


Enjoy the pictures.  I’m going to get back to some sweet newborn snuggles now …

  1. Congratulations and welcome Nathan! What an exciting way to kick off 2014! Your family is beautiful Amy. Hope you are enjoying these special newborn days.

  2. I just read Matthew’s story. He is a miracle. I am a volunteer at Birthright and our mission is to help mommie to bring their babies in this world and give them an alternative to abortion, Bless you for chosing LIFE.

    • Sharion, I am very familiar with Birthright and the good work that they do! Thank you for volunteering your time with their wonderful organization, and “loving them both.” I had the honor of speaking at Birthright’s international conference in 2016, and even though I was very familiar with our local chapter, I was overcome by the loving and giving spirit of everyone present at the conference. Thank you again for giving of yourself and your time! All life is precious.
