March Forth!
Note From Julie and Tom
Dear One,

Do you remember the first week of your child's life? Did you spend it sore and recovering? Did you spend it in the NICU? Did you fall instantly in love or was it a little more gradual? Did you spend hours just looking in that little face watching that tiny mouth move this way and that? What do you think a new born sounds like? Someone in our family says all those little squeaks and grunts sound like a baby elephant.

Perhaps your child is adopted: Was your first week filled with paperwork and meetings and introductions? Was your child newborn or a bit older? Do you remember who handed you your child for the very first time? Did time stop?
 
Julie and EvelynWe are over the moon here at March Forth Family with the birth of Evelyn Grace - the firstborn of our firstborn and our son-in-love. Little Evelyn has made Amy an auntie for the very first time. Precious Evelyn made Julie a Grammi and Tom a Grampa for the very first time.

So many memories came flooding back of the births and new lives of our four children.

What are your special memories? Take a minute to remember the good ones. If you would like to share your memories, we'd love to hear them: email us at MarchForthFamily@gmail.com.

Are there things you wish family and friends knew?  Julie spent some time with our firstborn chatting about the first week of being new parents.
