I am so amazed at how much the heart can grow and stretch. At our ability to love and make room for another person as though they were always present. Every time I have had a child I thought how can I love one more person, and be able to give them all what they need. Somehow it just happens! You make room and the new little person makes all of your lives better just by having them and it re-enforces motherhood once again and our ability to care for ad love our young. In a way that only a mother can love. Watching how the boys have responded to a sister and how they never miss a beat and keep on ticking along as thought things have always been this way. Like this is how life was meant to be. They are my tiny hero's, I hope that when all 5 of my children look back on their lives the one thing they know for sure is they were loved. That they grew up in a loving home, that they never felt left out or not wanted. They are these great people who have compassion, share, and laugh all the time. I hope life is kind to them and that they always stay that way!

On December 16th I gave birth to my fifth child a girl. The only one I will ever have. She was born at 3:18p.m. 6 lbs. 15 oz and 19 1/2 inches. I went into the hospital at 8:30 they broke my water at 9:30 went into labor at 2 and the 2 pushes later and some extra pain medication there she was. I never in my life would have thought that I would be the mother of 5. Here I am almost 10 years of marriage to an amazing man and I have 4 sons and 1 daughter. The boys have been over joyed to have her.

It never ceases to amaze me at how my life has turned out. I was the one who didn't want to get married and never wanted kids. To now I cannot imagine anything else better then the life I live. Being a stay at home mom and loving everything about it. Knowing how blessed I am in my life to be able to be at home with them. getting to share in every little thing in their lives right now. Watching them change and mature into the little gentlemen that they are. I know I will find the same joy and comfort with my daughter. I wish that my father could see her, hold her, share all of his wisdom with her. So I will just have to do my best to impart that into her. to give her the confidence that he gave me to face the world and all of it's challenges.

She is perfect and I know that she will bring as much joy and laughter to our lives as her brothers have. I hope she is ready for this crazy life with 4 older brothers. I am sure that there will be times in her life where she will not like being the only girl with all these boys. I think I like it that way....they will make sure she stays in line I am sure!
