Cup Completely Full

This week has been ....hmmmmm. It is hard for me to find the right words to describe it. I am tired, but surprisingly able to get on with life (and not be too grouchy). I daydream all the time about life with our three little blessings and my heart will race thinking of all the fun and memories that we are going to make together as a family. I watch Chris with the children and almost come to tears each time because I am so blessed to have a best friend and husband who loves me and his family so much. He has been such a HUGE help this week, and it just feels good to all be home together as a family. I get anxious as I realize that Chris's leave is almost over and it will be up to me to take care of all three by myself (well, not really due to all the family coming in town). I am in awe that God chose me to be a Mommy to three children. I am excited about the promise of visitors that will be coming from now until Christmas to see us and our new baby girl.

Basically, my cup runneth over and praise God for His blessings on us.

Hannah Elizabeth Steele

She is here and we are overjoyed! Hannah was born on November 10th (the Marine Corps Birthday of all days!) @ 9:40 pm. She weighed 8 lbs and was 20 inches long. THANKFULLY she came on the 10th because this area was hit by a Nor'easter on Wed the 11th and I don't know if we could have made it to the hospital. We had to stay at the hospital until Friday due to all the flooding from the storm. Our stay was nice and quite, but we were itching to get home and see our other babies and introduce Miss Hannah to them.

Both Luke and Hayley are quite taken with Hannah. The poor child will have no hair left due to all the head rubs and kisses she receives from them. I am constantly in a sleepy state, but I know that these moments are fleeting. Trying to soak it all in and just praising God for another beautiful miracle!

Boo Y'all

I'm still here! I'm still pregnant!! I started this post last week and it is now Monday, November 9th. I'm having a hard time getting motivated to do anything these days. I thought FOR SURE this little girl would be here by now, but we are still in wait mode. God knows the perfect time for her to come so I am working on patience. I just can't wait to see her sweet face, kiss her, hold her, love on her, and introduce her to her Daddy, brother, sister, and the oodles of other folks who have prayed for her and love her dearly!
We had a great time on Halloween. Luke was very into his character. As you can see, there were no smiles coming from Batman. He is way too busy fighting off crime and looking tough to smile for his Mama. Thumbilina was over the moon about the hair piece I found at Target on clearance the week of Halloween. Totally made the costume and her day. She is such a girly girl and I LOVE it. I so wonder if Miss Hannah will be as girly.....
This past weekend was beautiful. The weather was perfect. We spent several hours just playing in the yard on Saturday and Sunday. The kids "helped" Chris with some yard work and washing both of the cars. Hopefully my next post will include pics of baby girl, but I guess we will have to wait and see.
