Update on the Family

So I thought that it was time to finally get back to the blog with an update on how we are doing...
as a family of 7!

We are all enjoying the time with our new precious girl.

And while a boy might have been wonderful in it's own way...our family was meant for one more girl and Emelia is just the perfect fit:)  Ella was a little disappointed at first, but once she met her newest little sister, she declared, "I want to keep her!"

I think they are all equally in love with her and they fight over holding her.

(Alice and Kate had colds...thus the masks:)

Aubrey is always looking for "baby".  It is the first thing she signs in the morning and she keeps pretty good tabs on where Emelia is all day and there is no such thing as too close...Aubrey likes to be right there with her all the time:)

And then we got to back her up and bring her the middle of a TX ice storm!  Worst weather we've seen in the last 15 years!  The big girls missed 4 days last week and 1 already this week!

So now we are home, getting used to being 7 and having one more mouth to feed and one more person to keep up with:)

We are thankful to Brenna for leaving her 4 kids at home in MN to come take care of our 4 kids while Emelia was born.

And we are thankful to have had the grandmas here to play and help out now that we are home.
