On Monday, July 20th, the Lord added a new grandbaby to the Sloan family. Since there are eight Sloan children and all of the ladies (or the wives of the Sloan men) are in their child-bearing years, the number of grandbabies keeps growing at a very fast rate! The number of grandbabies is close to 30 now. Just to give you an idea of the growth rate, my 5-year-old is the 12th grandbaby...Meet Mark Alan Ralph Sloan, 3rd son of Philip and Liz (my brother-in-law and his wife who are missionaries in Chiapas, Mexico). Since many of you know them, I thought I would add these pictures here on my blog so that you could rejoice with us in his birth. Little Mark was born by way of C-section and weighed 7.1 pounds. Isn't he just adorable?! I can't wait to meet him some day (although I'm sure he'll be MUCH bigger when that day comes!).
