More Baby Pictures...will it EVER STOP!!!

Don't get us wrong, we love baby pictures and more then ever now that we have our very own Nadia. But we also realize that people want to read more about our life then just our lovely little one. So to keep this blog from filling up with only baby pictures we have decided to put some of the baby pictures on our Flickr account for now. Or at least until we have no other way because of slow internet speeds in Mozambique. That way you will not get bored with our blog and you can still see the variety of other encounters we are having here in Southern Africa. We have just put some new ones up so take a look.

Toodles...(wait, isn't that baby talk)

Nadia's name

In the week since Nadia's arrival, we have received numerous congratulations on our new baby and compliments on her name. Several have asked if her name came from the time I (Jenny) spent in Russia. The answer is yes.

Nadia is the nickname of the Russian name Nadezhda. Nadezhda, in Russian means "hope". Nadia was a name I always liked while I was in Russia. Since then, and especially since living in Mozambique, I have thought alot about the signficance of hope in our world. My prayer for our daughter is that God will use her to bring Hope and Grace to the world around her.
