Keri and I could not think of a better way to start out this blog than by announcing the birth of our firstborn! Peter Lewis Osterberg was born at 12:26 a.m. yesterday morning April 18th weighing 6 lbs. 12 oz. and measuring out at 20'' long. He is an awesome sepcimen of God's creative power and we hope that you will all rejoice with us upon hearing this news!
Keri and I have spent many hours just staring at our little guy in adoration and curiosity. Peter's got Keri's ears and my mouth mouth, but we are extremely thankful that He does not have my eyebrows or love handles. He is a very happy baby - He eats well, sleeps well, and can twist his legs around so that he looks like a pretzel. We think that he may have a future in the circus. God only knows what the future will bring, but as of now Keri and I still have our wits about us and we are thanking God for the grace he has poured out on us in bringing Peter into this world. Please join with us in prayer as we ask, even now, for God to bring Peter to repentance and faith in our Lord Jesus Christ when he gets older and pray for us as we try to raise him faithfully according to the Word of God.
