What a Week!

We welcomed baby Margaret to the world last week!  Everything went well- she is healthy and happy and adored by her big brother and big sister.  It has been so heartwarming to see how B and S have loved her.  3-year old B wants to be a big helper, from carrying her in from the hospital (below) to kissing her over and over and telling her how much he loves her.  S, who is extremely attached to her blanket and won't let anyone else get near it, immediately takes her blanket to baby M when she is crying.  I know things are going to get more chaotic as baby M is awake more and more, but we are so thankful for this special new addition to our family.



Lest I sound like it is all roses, let me tell you- I'm tired.  Exhausted.  Recovering from a third c-section is rough, and I don't have time to relax and recuperate with two other little children who need me.  Two of our cars were broken into while we were at the hospital last week.  If it's not one thing, it's another!

Of course none of that compares to what people in Boston have dealt with over the last few days.  The survivors and the families of the victims continue to be in our prayers.  I have to admit it was a strange feeling to be celebrating the birth of a new baby and soon thereafter hearing the news about Boston.  It made me want to hold my children close, to keep them safe from the evil in the world.  In the (relative) quiet of the hospital, I had time to think about what really matters in life, particularly for my children, and how I want them to know the love we have for them and the love that God has for them.  

Thank you for your thoughts, prayers, and kind words!  It's good to be back!

I hope you get a week or good, simultanious naps, and let yourself just SIT (or sleep!) during them. You're doing an amazing job!
