A Family of Five...

I can't believe I now have three incredible children! We are adjusting, slowly, and trying to enjoy every minute with this precious new baby girl! I am so smitten by her. She is just the most perfect creature, and I can't believe God has blessed me to be her mommy! The boys have been incredible with her in a way I would have never imagined. They are so in love with her, and we've seen a whole new side to Griffin. My son, who's never been known for gentleness and likes to run around like a wild man all day, now wants nothing more than to hold or sit next to Collier...patting her head, kissing her forehead, telling her secrets, talking to's as if God has already given him a sense of protectiveness over his baby sister. Anderson is constantly kissing her on the head and saying, "She's so cute!" I'm trying to just enjoy their sweet, energetic spirits and be thankful they are so happy to have her be part of our family!

Here I am! I weighed 7 lbs!

Mommy is beyond proud!

My grandparents rushed in to see me!

Meeting Granny and Papa Dave!

Meeting Nana and Poppy!

Daddy thinks I'm an angel! My big brother Griffin...
My big brother Anderson...
Pink, Pink, and More Pink!!

Are you sure we have to leave the hospital??

When Michael asked me to marry him, he gave me three roses...a taller white rose to represent God and the shorter red ones represent us. With each child he's sent me this same arrangement, only now there are 3 smaller roses to represent our three children!!

Home from the hospital!

With my cousin Elise!

My brothers are giddy over me!

Fun Pics

Here's a few random pics from the past couple weeks...

Anderson's Birthday

I can't believe my little man is already 2! We had a low-key birthday party at the park a couple weeks's a few pics of the fun day!!

Griffin quickly caught on to the fact that a birthday for Anderson meant fun new toys for him too...what a great plus to having 2 kids of the same sex!

Arrrrgh, mateys!!!!

We had a great time carving our pumpkin this year! If any of you haven't seen The Pumpkin is a great book to use with your kids during Halloween and especially when you carve your pumpkin!!

The boys dressed up as pirates and we went to a Halloween party at a friend's house! Anderson really picked up on the goal of trick or treating, and by the end of the night he was a pro! They both had a great time and got way too much candy!!

the Hunkin Patch...

Going to the Pumpkin Patch (or Hunkin Patch as A calls it) has become something we look forward to every year. Griffin talks about it and looks forward to it forever! This year I took the boys twice...the first time we went with Aunt Nanette, Bryce, and Elise, and the second time Daddy came and we went with some of our best friends who were in town to visit!

Our sweet friends the Meaghers...
