Yes, this really is exactly what it appears to be. I was in the kitchen a few days ago and heard a splashing noise. Mr. L doesn't usually get into trouble in the bathroom, but I walked in to find him using a cup to drink water out of the toilet. As disguisting as it was, all I could do was laugh- and snap a picture to remember the moment! Then seriously wash his hands, of course...

Our Family Blog, Take Two...

It's no secret I'm not the greatest blogger in the world.... Alright, it's been almost a year since I even made a post on our last family blog. Truth is I had some experiences with that blog that kind of freaked me out a little. Because I didn't know exactly how to handle what was going on, I just made the blog private and stopped posting on it. I've decided now, though, that it's time to try again. This blog is going to be much more anonymous... no names or any other identifying information. If you'd like more information about names, etc. you're welcome to email me and I'd be happy to share info! I can't make any promises about being a better poster on this blog than I was on the last, but I do promise I will try. So, without further ado, here's our first post!

Miss H is here!

Our little Miss H arrived via a quick labor on Monday, March 7. It's hard to believe she's already almost three weeks old! She seriously was in a hurry to get here, not even letting us make it to a delivery room in the hospital. She was born in the triage room because she was delivered within a few minutes of walking into the hospital. Despite the craziness surrounding her birth, so far she is a very calm, peaceful baby. She probably took one look at her surroundings and realized she'd have to be pretty chill to make it around here! I think her older two siblings already do enough to keep us on our toes!

Our first glimpses of those sweet little cheeks! She weighed in at 7 lbs. 3 oz. and 19 inches long.
Miss A was totally thrilled about having a sister! The gender of this baby was a surprise until she was born. A few hours after Miss H was born, I called to talk to Miss A. When I told her she had a new sister, she started giggling and was totally giddy for the rest of the conversation.
My mom and dad jumped in the car and drove from Virginia when they found out labor had begun. They didn't make it til quite awhile after Miss H had arrived, but they got to see her the next day. My dad had to turn around and drive back home the day after he got here in order to be back to work, but my mom stayed to help us out for a couple of weeks. She was seriously a lifesaver!!!

Because Mr. L and Miss H are only barely 18 months apart, I really expected Mr. L to have a tough time adjusting to not being the baby anymore. He still seemed like such a baby until this new one arrived. Then, overnight almost, he seemed to just grow up! He's done surprisingly well adjusting to having a new baby. He completely adores her and wants to shower her with kisses on her head every time he sees her.
