Hey Sassi & Nick, We were so delighted for you both when we heard you were having a little baby - so exciting!!! When Evelyn was born back in March (time really does fly by when you are a parent!!!) it was the single most precious moment of our lives. You are both going to be amazing parents; cherish every second of the journey! Loads of love, Andy, Becky & Evelyn xxx
Dear Nick and Sassi, Children are such a gift from God! They remind us that we need Jesus every minute of every day. They remind us that we have no wisdom in and of ourselves. And they remind us that God wants us to pray continually and look to him. You will make mistakes--we all make lots!--but the important thing is to keep the conversation going. Keep listening, keep serving, keep pouring God's Word into their hearts, and keep loving, and your children will know where they can come when they need a steady someone to walk alongside them. We know you will be amazing parents! Love, Stephen and Tricia
To Sassi & Nick, Congratulations, enjoy every moment as they grow so fast and time goes quickly My advice would be nap when baby naps and enjoy quality time with your little family when baby is born. Hoping and praying your baby is healthy and a happy baby and sleeps well for you and this will be a new chapter of your life Judy beginning, I’m always on end of phone if you need help or just to have a cup of tea & catch up when baby is napping or playing. You both will make fabulous parents! We can’t wait to meet baby Ezra too at a distance! From Rachel & my daughter Amelia-Rose Mitchell
Dear Nick & Sassi A new chapter full of wonders and new experiences lies ahead, I cannot really give you advice about parenting, but can write a few lines of rhyme instead To wish your baby boy a very happy healthy welcome to this earth And Sassi a lot of strength and energy for giving birth I know you both as so welcoming and hospitable, always caring, That I am super happy for the lucky baby with whom you will be sharing So much love !! 😊 ❤
Hi Nick and Sassi, So I think I have 0 level of parenting wisdom as I'm not a parent. But as a godparent to 2 brilliant little girls who are the brightest rays of sunshine in my world, I will share what little knowledge I have. Don't be afraid to ask for help from your friends and family and church family when you need to or if you want a break, especially from those without children around them(singles, couples waiting/trying to have children, older people who's family have flown the nest, generally people who like children). Who knew babysitting could be the greatest gift sometimes? And when you pitch it like this, who can refuse you 😜 When you become a parent I hear the novelty element of children wears off though? Let me know. But from my experience, most of the time they are so fun and blow me away with their intelligence and ability to ask pertinent questions (sometimes even in their own languages or using limbs). Occasionally they are not so fun and surprise me with how naughty they are, their ability to remind us of original sin and tears and tantrums happen. You will experience more of the latter as parents than I ever have. But the experience remains the greatest adventure of a lifetime and they are the most wonderful gift to never take for granted. I know you will be fantastic parents and continuously remind your little one how loved and valued they are. They will know this even more because of how grateful you are to be parents and because you know The Father and how much He loves His children. I am so excited to meet Ezra and see him dancing and wiggling in person. You're going to be great! Love Liz xxx
You asked for a special/wise message so it is my pleasure to share my “wisdom” 😉 Actually it’s more an observation than wisdom - when we started out on the parenting journey I wish I had realised then how much our little children understand, how much they absorb, how much they mirror what you say and invest in them, how amazingly clever and full of potential they are. I can’t wait to be a grandparent now I know all that! Your starting blocks are so different from what ours were so I am sure you will be particularly awesome parents!
