She's Here!

Ok, so she's been here for nearly a week now, but I've had a lot of snuggling to do that took priority over computer time. Can you blame me?

Allow me to introduce Jillian Grace...


The memory card for my camera has gone missing, so all I have are a few pictures from my phone. I decided that if I kept waiting until I could use my camera she might be walking before you got to see her!

Jill is a very sweet baby, and our smallest one yet weighing just 6 lb 11 oz at birth. She seems so tiny and now Max seems enormous!


My mom is still here helping, so most of my time has been spent in my comfy chair holding Jill trying to keep Max and the older boys from completely smothering her. 

This is the view from where I am now, typing one handed...


And now I must go and try to steal a quick nap before everyone wakes up. I'm sure you'll understand if I'm a little slow answering emails and leaving comments for the next little while!

  14. I have been thinking about you for days and wondering if that sweet little miss had arrived yet!!! I love the name, it's so pretty and classy. Emma's middle name is Grace as well. Enjoy all that sweet baby love and lay low for as long as you need. Good luck to Wyatt starting school. He'll have quite the news to tell about what he did this summer with a new baby girl in the house. :)
