It seems hard to believe it has been a year and a half since I last wrote here on the blog. It seems like just yesterday I was writing constantly. What a difference a year and half can make! Our family looks differently than it did then--In July of 2012, we added a baby boy to our family.
Levi was excited it was a boy! We didn't find out what we were having, so it was a surprise for all of us. He said all along that he thought we'd have a boy, and was excited he was right!
I didn't think that Lydia would love him as much as she did! She thought he was born just to be "her" baby and when someone tried to take him away, would squeeze him tight and say-- "no, MY baby". To this day, she loves him lots and still squeezes him constantly!
Here is a picture of the crew! Levi and Lydia were very excited to have a new baby brother. Silas...he wasn't excited-- he thought we needed to have a girl, so we would have 2 boys and 2 girls and it would be even. He didn't want to hold Simeon at the hospital, but warmed up to him when we got home. To this day, he still says he hopes that next time it will be a girl...to help even things out. Love him!
Lydia helping daddy tend to Simeon. There wasn't a moment she didn't want to be near him!
The sign our children (and our moms) made to welcome Simeon home.
He has been a great baby, and an easy fit in our family. As we speak, he is 11 months and is a giggly, busy, happy baby.
Our Crew at the Zoo!
Praying that you have had a great 1 1/2 years too!
More updates to come!
