she arrived eleven days early. i guess she was as anxious to meet us as we were to meet her.
i haven't blogged in a while because we were using all our spare time preparing for baby girl's arrival, spending time with mclain and watching all the episodes of 'new girl' for the fourth time. needless to say, we were busy. since she has arrived we've been spending our time loving on her, feeding her, staring at her, feeding her holding her, feeding her and watching mclain love on her. he LOVES to hold her, point out all the body parts on her face and give her aggressive, slobbery kisses. i'd have to say my favorite part of being a mama of 2 is watching mclain love on his baby sister.
to be honest, i was a little apprehensive about having another little. life was so good as a family of 3, i couldn't imagine it getting any better. but God has bigger and better plans than i could ever imagine. he has definitely blessed our family of 3 to become a family of 4 and she fits so perfectly. okay, enough with the babble here are some pics of our first week as a family of 4!
