I haven’t posted in awhile, so I wanted to post this update. We had our little girl Norah Grace Hinson on October 26th, 2010. She’s a sweetie, and I’m very excited about having her.
A few days ago we went out to Dairy Queen to grab a treat and the car was full. Hannah and Norah were both in the back of our station wagon, and my wife and I were up front. We had all the necessary gear to keep the kids entertained and happy while we were driving and were enjoying our time together. We have a full family now, all four of us together. I’m very excited about this, I feel very lucky to have my girls and honored to be their father.
My first child, Hannah is 2 years and three months and is very headstrong, but she can also be very responsible. I’m excited about the role she now plays in her little sister’s life, and though she’s still challenging at times, she is what we prayed for all along. A daughter who would be strong and independent, to not be easily swayed by peer pressure. She is confident and spunky, and that’s what I have to remember in the challenging moments.
Our new baby, though we don’t know her very well so far, seems to be very laid back. We keep waiting for things to get difficult, but she seems fairly content to go where we go and live how we live. She is really easy so far, which isn’t what we’re used to. I’m excited to see them grow up together.
