The kids could hardly contain their excitement in the final days
as we anticipated our baby's birth!
And the actual event was just as thrilling as they'd imagined
(well... Amelia doesn't look too thrilled, but I can assure you she was!)
This was their first peek at their forever sister!
While most babies are welcomed into the world with softly sung lullaby's,
Eve was welcomed with a heart felt, albeit off-key, rendition of Happy Birth-day!
They even brought an Oreo birthday cake!
(The chocolate cake crumbs in the hospital bed that night reminded me that
I am blessed
motherhood is never boring!)
Jacob meets Eve.
(Our oldest and youngest.)
Aubree gives Eskimo Kisses.
Hayden is so tender with his Sister....
... and Seth is a gentle giant.
Let's take her HOME!
