photos and lyrics

Here's a picture of our neighbor and good friend, Angel with his daughter, Evelin. They came over the other day. The whole family came last night. I will try to post a pic of that visit later on.
Here's Evan hanging in his crib.
Following is a song from one of my favorite singers that has taken on great meaning recently. I had listened to it before Evan was born and it was interesting, but the meaning of it really touched my (our) heart(s) the other day. We were just hanging out with Evan and listening to music and this song came on and impacted me in an amazing way.
"Family Man"- from "Love & Thunder," Words and music by Andrew Peterson
I am a family man
I traded in my mustang for a minivan
This is not what I was headed for when I began

But everything I had to lose
Came back a thousand times in you
And you fill me up with love
Fill me up with love

And you help me stand
'cause I am a family man

And life is good
That's something I always knew
But I just never understood
If you'd asked me then you know I'd say I never would
Settle down in a neighborhood
I never thought I could

But I don't remember anymore
Who I even was before
You filled me up with love
Filled me up with love
And you help me stand

So come on with the thunder clouds
Let the cold wind rail against us, let the rain come down
We can build a roof above us with the love we've found
We can stand our ground
So let the rain come down

Because love binds up what breaks in two
So keep my heart so close to you
And I'll fill you up with love
Fill you up with love
And I'll help you stand
'Cause I am a family man

I'm saving my vacation time
For Disneyland
This is not what I was headed for when I began
This was not my plan
It's so much better than
