I never could have imagined the experiences, challenges and rewards that come along with the title and responsibility of being "Mom". Everyday my little ones present different needs to be met, new attitudes to understand, stages to conquer, and find new ways to unravel my patience. Despite the challenges, the rewards that come from a genuine I love you mom, a moment of 3 children happily playing together, and even a simple accomplishment bring feelings and emotions that words can't describe. I am ever so grateful for my Precious Little Ones; for their individuality, talents, and the completeness each one contributes to the Cox Clan.

Welcome Little One!!

Our home has experienced a change...a very exciting and good change.  Bringing home our new baby has been a delightful experience!  Even though this isn't new for me for some reason, this time around has been different.  More than anything, I think watching my 3 other childrens' anticipation for his arrival, the excitment of him being born, and the new everyday life with him in our home has been incredibly enjoyable for me.  We absolutely love and adore him!

Baby Ashton
Born March 7, 2011
Weighed 8lbs 8 oz; 20 inches




The kids were so excited to finally meet their new brother. Unfortunately, their first glimpse of him had to be through a window...they couldn't touch, hold or kiss him until he came home. We were heartbroken! Luckily, they only had to wait one day and so Ashton's arrival home was anxiously welcomed.








 I am thoroughly enjoying Baby Ashton and the time I get to spend holding, rocking, and cuddling him. I find myself snuggling with and watching him many hours throughout the day (when I should be doing many other things) and wondering how it's possible that in such a short amount of time, I can love him so much. It is an amazing experience and I am very grateful for the moments of realizing how special welcoming a new little one into this world really is.

What a cute boy, and a fairly big boy! Were you other kids that big? His hair is so cute and looks to me like it has already been cut and styled! Oh, I am sure everyone is glad to have him home! Congratulations!

Congratulations Jennie! I know how much you will enjoy him. We sure have enjoyed Mack a lot since he came into our family. There's just something special about the new babe coming 5 years after your last one. He will be loved a lot I'm sure. Good luck with everything! He's a cute one!!
