Meeting Baby Brother..

For weeks now the kids have prayed, anticipated and even {daily} looking out the window each morning to see if ‘daddys car was gone that would mean brother was here.” Finally Saturday they were able to see us off and wait for the call 🙂 Once brother arrived the kids -and Nonna- hurried to the hospital to meet him!

ready to meet brother!

I made the shirts tutorial here….

first was the attempt to get a group family picture… yep a bit more challenging than we expected… due to me not being able to hold any of the kids and being bed ridden…

They were beyond thrilled! It was neat this time since they each understood it this go around. seeing their smiles and desire to hold Asher over and over was so heart warming!

Our Chickadee turned 1!

ON Dec 4th our youngest (for the moment) turned 1. As I reflect and realize that 1 year ago I went to the doctor as normal only 37 weeks along.. sent to the hospital.. 9 hours later give birth to this precious baby girl. MY first 100% natural birth and my smallest baby..:)

Now I see a girl who is full of personality, desperately wants to talk, walks around like a champ, eats puffs and green beans like a pro and is ONE!

Unlike the others parties it was easy to plan and prepare.. Sweet Lydias was a bit harder.. its is Christmas time and all that it entails.. friends are busy, family is far away.. and i didn’t want a winter, frozen, Christmas theme..

SO first we did our Kent family tradition .. donuts (at the local donut shop…) then publics for her choice of cereal..(yes older siblings MAY have helped;)

Then it was time to plan her party.. we always do party bigs.. but this year with me very pregnant and it being christmas time.. it ended up being sweet and simple! Our theme was ‘Cute as a Button our Lydia Grace is turning 1″

So very blessed to have friends who we can have our children grow up with.. most of these little girls have siblings my kids age.. being able to do life and parties with them is so much fun!

We love you sweet Liddy!!
Love mommy!
