What we've been up to the past five days :)

Hellooooo!! Thank you for all of the Littlest love you've been sending! I wish I could give each of you a big hug :)

We ended up only staying at the hospital Saturday night and came home on Sunday evening! We said as long as she was healthy and I was doing ok, we'd save a bunch of money (new insurance, yuck) and go home and be with the whole fam. :) (and it earned me a little shopping moneys since we saved so much, hehe)

What have we been up to? Enjoying our sweet HM! She is so sweet, and content, and alert (when she's awake ;)), we are SO excited and blessed to add her to our family!!


At the hospital







Getting to take our HM home!!!


Enjoying all of her sweetness at home



Going to her first doctor appointment :)

In four days she was back up to 9lbs 13oz, just about her birth weight! :) She's 97th percentile for height and over 97th percentile for weight. She knew she'd need to be a good size to keep up with her brothers! :)


Meeting her two big brothers!!!!! {her onesie says Little Sister, ahh :)}

They have been SO good with her! The first time BabyBoy came in our room and saw her he looked a little scared, not knowing what to think, seeming to process that this was Littlest, from Mommy's belly :) and ever since, he comes over to say hi HM so sweetly and give her soft kisses on the head, oh SO sweet! and Little looks at her and excitedly says, baba! babee! (baby:)). He's very gentle overall, still working on his soft touch, haha, but he also gives her sweet little kisses on the head!



I cannot get over this picture!! It is SO difficult to get everybody to laugh or smile at the same exact time in the same pic - some BabyBoy had a huge laughing smile and others Little had his huge cheesy smile - but we think this one is pretty great!! :)


Not much I can say after that ;-).

My Mom is here this week and I don't know what we would do without her! She is beyond amazing. She's been taking care of the boys, cooking, doing the dishes and laundry, grocery shopping, and helping with HM; we haven't had to ask anything, she just takes initiative to do it all! Annnd, it has allowed us to have alone time with each of the boys too, which we really think has made the transition for them so far so much easier.

Hubby (and my Mom) is taking such good care of me and all the littles! He brings HM to me when she needs to eat (throughout the night too), changes her diaper in between feeding (to help her stay awake enough to eat ;)), plays with her of course. I know I've said it before, but I (and the littles) are be-yond blessed! And I have admit... I have not changed one diaper so far!

Lots of love and big hugs fam and friends!!!

Thanks A LOT. Now I have major baby fever. I can't stop looking at your little girl, she is so precious! Those chunky cheeks!!!!!! I'd say she looks lots like E as of now. I'm so sad that I can't just hop in the car and come see you guys :-( Hopefully you all will come and visit US :-)

Ok, 1. You look fabulous. If I look half as good as you when I'm leaving the hospital with my future babies, I will consider that a HUGE blessing. 2. HM has the most perfect little cupid lips! On my word is she precious.

Congratulations to your whole family on the sweet new addition!

love love!
