Ezra Thankful Loomis

Ezra Thankful Loomis (due August, 2015) was born at home around 3:50 AM on the morning of Tuesday, February the 24th, 2015 AD.
His soul had already gone home to be at rest with the Lord.

Ezra (עזרא) means “God is my helper”. Ezra 7:10 tells us he was a priest and scribe who set his heart to study, do, and teach the Law of the Lord.
“Baby Thankful” was our in-the-womb name for him. Thankful Williams Tyler (1751-1829) was also his 7th-great grandmother who lived in Tolland, CT.

 Our soul waits for the Lord;
he is our help and our shield.
 For our heart is glad in him,
because we trust in his holy name.
 Let your steadfast love, O Lord, be upon us,
even as we hope in you. Psalm 33:20-22

Rebecca and the family are well, trusting in God’s sovereign care and the sure resurrection in Christ at the last day.

Trip to the Beach!!!

Our family LOVES, LOVES, LOVES going to the ocean. And it’s really not too far away. In the busyness of life, though, it doesn’t happen very often. Especially with all the pregnancies, morning sickness, preterm labor, and postpartum days of the last several years. ;) It was really special to pack a picnic and spend a lovely day at the beach! Here are a few snapshots of our day.

Picnic lunch with my precious people: tuna salad, sourdough biscuits, grapes, carrots, cottage cheese and last but not least, sourdough chocolate chip cookies! Yum.

Nehemiah loved playing in the sand.

Mommy took Nehemiah out to the water before it was time to go home.

We passed some really cute shops on up way to the beach so decided to visit them before heading back home. We bought some yarn to make Priscilla Jane a hat, some delicious freshly made salami from a amazing local butcher shop , and after trying to eat dinner in the van, gave up and had a super yummy dinner at a French pastry shop. The lamb stew was incredible!!! Unfortunately this was the only picture we took at that stop and it was when we were still tired and hungry and not after the delicious dinner. :)

Still Here.


Though you may have doubted it, our blog is still here. It was down for a while, but it’s back up and running.

The Loomis family is still here too: Steven, Rebecca, Nehemiah, and Priscilla Jane. We are greatly enjoying life with our precious little ones.

Hoping to post more frequently in this new year now that Steven connected my phone to this handy dandy WordPress app. ;)
