10 days of catching up...

I haven't been blogging much lately but I am sure you can understand why. Here are some pictures from the past 10 days.

The girls made me a welcome home dinner on Thursday night. They planned the whole meal and made decorations for all around the house. They dressed in their favorite clothes and worked so hard to make it perfect for me. The 'Best wish' for the evening was that Jack would come home soon.

Uncle Chris came to visit us last weekend. It was great to have extra hands especially when they went to the basketball game.

Adie loves being the big sister.

Lydia was able to stay up and have some special time with Jack. She was in heaven. Of all the kids, Jack looks the most like her baby pictures.
Jack is seriously the best baby! I am so blessed. He is calm, easy going, and relaxed. He cries when he is hungry or wet and if he is awake he lays and listens to the chaos going on around him. I am smitten over him. It is completely different than with my three girls. I can't put it into words but it is just different.

Lydia is always telling Carl that he needs to come and take a picture. Today he stopped working for 3 minutes and took that picture - and it is priceless.

oh precious pics - thanks for taking time to post them amidst "life". : ) What priceless gifts and moments to cherish - makes you so thankful for pictures so we don't forget the "awe" filled moments of our day. I am so glad for this new experience with a newborn boy for both you and Carl. Tell me - have you gotten sprayed yet? : )
