What a blessing!

I wasn't sure where to start so I thought for just a moment until it quickly came to me- duh! I need to thank God for how good he has been in our lives. He recently blessed us with yet another healthy, beautiful baby. This time a girl who we named Caroline Rose (Rose being after my maternal grandmother). She is truly a little angel and we are so proud of her! She has been a wonderful little baby so far and Drew has been a terrific big brother. There is nothing like seeing your children side by side. I had no idea how amazing it would be! Drew is "heady" for her to play with him and was caught reading a book to her the day we brought her home. He also likes to get his toys out and play with them in front of her. He could care less if she is awake or not! We explain to him that one day soon she will be able to play with him. He really doesn't understand just how fast she will grow up. I, on the other hand, have days where I just want her to stay in her little 5 week old body, because I know too well how fast she will grow up. I get teary-eyed just thinking about it.

Thank you God, again, for giving me this precious baby girl to love, nurture, protect, and guide for the rest of her life.
