It’s been a big, wild, wacky and supercool week for the Buss family.
Sebastian David Buss was born on Thursday, December 8, at 3:57 a.m. after less than two hours of labor. (Did I mention that my wife, Holly, totally rocks?)
He clocked in at nine pounds, twelve ounces(!); and at 22″ in length. (Picture above courtesy of our awesome friend and excellent photographer, Russell Johnston.)
Last year we were blessed with Sebastian’s big brother, Wolfgang (see: Wolfgang!).
Back in March of 2013, just over nine months into our marriage, Holly and I were blessed with our first child, Rosie, now three and just about the sweetest bean you’ve ever seen (see also: Rosie, Busgetti, and the Beauty of Catechism and Rosie and Wolfgang’s Big Adventure).
Clearly, with three young ‘uns aged three and under, the Lord has been doing a whole lotta blessing ’round here.
Soli Deo gloria and woohoo!
Sebastian Week and the lead-up to it (combined with a few other items) has shaken up my normal schedule quite a bit, but today should mark a return to normal-ish-ness. I should be posting 5-6 times weekly again starting right now, Lord willing.
But before rolling right into all o’ that, I thought it’d be cool to share some pictures from Sebastian Week, beginning with some shots of him with Rosie and Wolfgang:
Here’s a solo shot:
And finally, here’s the family on Sebastian’s birth day just hours after his arrival one week ago today:
So Happy One-Week-After-Sebastian-Day!
We’re looking forward to the adventures to come; to raising culture-shaping warriors for King and Kingdom, all by God’s grace, all for His glory, and all to our eternal benefit.
Thank you for your prayers, support, and encouragement. The way that God works through His people – some of whom have done so much to help and encourage us – never ceases to amaze.
Our awe only grows.
God is good!
Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate.
