Our life now…well almost…

March 3, 2013

I can’t believe it’s already been 12 days since we welcomed our sweet baby girl into our lives. We are still navigating through life and enjoying daddy’s presence at home. Tomorrow afternoon we all start navigating our new routines.

Oh how we’ve all enjoyed the elements of these last 12 days.

Introducing Elizabeth to our friends…

and our family….

It’s been so great to see how the kids interact with Ellie. Michael simply wants to snuggle with her, stare at her, talk to her, stroke her. He is so disappointed that she can’t yet REALLY see him. However, he was so delighted to know that she loves his voice. He talks to her constantly!

First pediatrician appointment 5 days after delivery, scored us an A+. I’ve never gotten an A+ on the first appointment. Needless to say, this momma of four is quite happy to have learned something over the years AND to have such a fantastic pediatrician. Clare is his 10,001 (by estimate of course) baby of his career!

Katie is really struggling in that difficult moment of maturing where you are floating somewhere in between wanting to grow up and simultaneously wanting to stay a child. It’s a hard balance for all of us and is filled with so much hormonal emotion also. I’m thankful for these moments of childhood for our sweet growing Katie Girl!!

Clare still loves her books. I love that Michael is my assistant photographer. It makes me so happy to download pictures and see the world through Michael’s lens. Thanks buddy for the partnership.

We had family pictures taken at the house…a first for us. “Our” photographer was delighted to try something different and take family pictures in our home. I can’t wait to see the images!! Thank you Terri!

Happy 36th Birthday Nate! We are so thankful for you and can’t wait to share all the blessings of this next year! We love you dear!

Dinner at the Japanese Steakhouse…a once-a-year treat on Nate’s birthday.

Egg toss…catch it in your mouth Mikey not on your forehead!

It’s been a great blessing to have his parents in town this weekend to celebrate with us. They love to play games which is a great reason for us to partake in our favorite family past times also. Thankfully, Nate loved his present…new games for the family. We highly recommend Anomia and our new favorite, Stomple.

Our friends are so very good to us. Golly!! There aren’t words to say thank you enough. We love you immensely.

Spoiled rotten! THANK YOU! The girls will be gallivanting with us in style.

And one more birthday celebration too!

We love you Ellie. Welcome to the family! You are such a sweet baby…content and snuggly!

If you are reading this, we would gratefully love your prayers for us this week. The grandparents are leaving. Nate is returning to work. Homeschooling lessons begin again AND all in the mix of two “babies”. Here’s to the new routine and normalcy of life now.

    Just lovely to capture these precious moments like this as they are happening, as your family expands, adjusts, and a new normal begins. She is just beautiful, little E. Thanks for sharing some of your new world with us!
