Composed


The letter Mitch wrote to Baby Allegra the night before she was born inspired our freakishly talented friend Ben Howington to write this. Listen for yourself.




Day 14 Update:  One fun uncle arrived.  Multiple naps.  Multiple feedings (1/2 oz. every 3 hours).  One feeding spit up through nose.  Babysat by uncle while we went to see Levi be a warthog in his awesome class play.

  3. Wow!! on the song and letter. Is it weird to actually be a little envious of all the experiences you are having? Special and awesome times for a special and awesome family. We love you all!

    Awesome, Awesome, AWESOME!!! What a treasure this song is! It feels like Baby Allegra belongs to us all. We are all able to share in her special journey because you have been so willing to share this sacred experience with us. I am loving her and praying for her from afar.

  5. Yeah how would that be to bust out your guitar and write/sing a really great song?! It was a tear jerker of a post by Mitch...so of course the song made me cry.

    Allegra looks beautiful in this pic.

    Good times with Ky, Levi the warthog and lots of spit up!
