Don't let this late announcing fool you...we are so thrilled this little girl is here! But our days are filled with holding a wee one and chasing a wild one and watching a curious one and listening to a very talkative one. Add on beautiful weather finally, a backyard filled with fun, and a new basketball hoop for our chatty one and you've got not too many minutes left in the day if you want to catch some shut eye before it all starts over again. Thus, the blog break :) But here I am finally getting some pics downloaded and some words put together to share this very good news...
She is here! Savannah Grace arrived on a rainy Sunday evening at 10:02pm on May 26th, 2013. She weighed in at 8'1 and 21 inches long. The first thing I saw on her when she reached out to me from my womb was those famous two dimples on both her cheeks...just like her Mama's and all three big brothers. Oh, and her huge hands! She has been an overflowing cup of goodness with a lot of sweetness oozing from her too. If you can't tell...we love her a little bit :)
The Sunday she was born started off fairly normal...I slept terrible the night before and we decided to take a Sunday off from church and just relax together one last lazy Sunday before we were no longer just us five. We spent the rainy morning doing not much of anything. My Instagram photo said "Perfect rainy day...slept in til 8:30, skipped church (oops), smoothie yumminess & donuts, mama took a nap already, and the sound of the rain as our background while we all lay around. Love unplanned days like this :)" Little did I know at that moment just how unplanned it was!
Savannah has been just a joy to get to know and we are spending some very low-key days doing just that... four is a lot, not gonna lie, but these slow days at home have made the transition go really well (so far!). As I keep saying...we are still swimming, not sinking...yet! We've been so blessed with food from friends and family, help with laundry, help with taking big boys to and from their activities, help from my super awesome hubs & roomie who let me heal and recover that first week, neighbors stopping in to lend a hand, and space to find a new rythem for our new family. Summer is a perfect time of year to add a sweet baby girl to this crazy, loud, and wildly fun mix of boys and two parents overly thankful for such a crew to call our own.
