My heart is full

Ben is at work for a couple of hours... Grant is in bed, Jackson is at the neighbors, and Lincoln is also in bed.
    I am not sure what to do with this quiet house except reflect ba
ck on the last 9 months.  With tear filled eyes and my brain about 50 % returned to normal I can actually think to express myself.  I wouldn't normally use my blog as a source to let my feelings out but there are so many people that have been so so helpful that I feel I need to say it here.  So here it goes. This pregnancy was the longest, most emotional, and guilt filled that I 
have ever experienced, I will say that I tried really hard to make it not known to most people but along the way I think I hurt some peoples feelings because I was really whats the word.... tried to hide, I am not sure why, but all I wanted to do was turn off my phone and hide. I have some really wonderful friends here in Cali who are so awesome!  I truly do think of all of you as my family since we don't have any around. I want all of my friends and family know that I so much appreciated your phone calls of concern and words of encouragement.  Although in the end I have the most beautiful and precious baby, I owe all of you a Great Big THANK YOU! 

We are in Love......

with this sweet guy.  He is such a good sleeper and only wakes up once in the middle of the night.  He has had his days and night figured out since the minute he was born.  He is very patient and rarely cries.  And he loves to snuggle!

He's here!!!

We are so so happy and excited to announce that our sweet little Lincoln is finally here!!! He was born on July 18th at 12:25 am he weighed 8 lbs. 9 oz. and is 20 inches long.  Jackson and Grant can't get enough of him and are the sweetest big brothers.  We are home and enjoying our family time together.

Lincoln's corner

This is what happens when you live in a 2 bedroom house and there are going to be 5 people living in it.

The baby gets a corner in your bedroom.

(thanks to Katie and Melissa for the decorations, I think it turned out adorable)

What do you do when...

Your feet look like elephant feet and it is really hot in your house???

You sit in a nice cool pool, and hope then swelling goes down.
