We went to Bill's on Friday.

This is such a wonderful place because it is outside, has delicious food, and has a sand box so that the kids can play. The weather has been unseasonably "unhumid" the past couple days which made for a pretty nice lunch!!

B-rad + T-bird = LOVE

We went to Austin for Memorial Day weekend for B's brother's wedding! We had a pretty good time considering we were traveling with a 2 week old and AM and C started off the weekend with fever's and bronchitis.

At the hotel, we ended up in an amazing 2 bedroom suite with a full kitchen, living room, huge master bath with jacuzzi tub, and 2 patios! We had asked for adjoining rooms, but they did not deliver...Luckily Pops took charge and hooked us up with the suite!!

C, AM, and AC welcomed their new Aunt on Sat evening. The wedding was at their house in South Austin and planned for the backyard. Unfortunately, it rained a bit and had to be moved into the living room. They were able to fit 4 tables of 10 chairs inside and still have the ceremony in front of their fireplace! It was so intimate and sweet...I cried and cried!

You may recognize the officiant, he was in our wedding! He got "certified" online to perform the wedding!

You know there was CORN! These guys love popcorn... and beer... especially Lone Star(the official beer of Texas)!

Here is the whole family!

Look at my angels in their matching outfits! They looked so cute and sweet. I can't wait until they can all match again!!

They said the kids would regress...

Here is AM with her "paci" and blankey... funny, she didn't even take a pacifier as a baby.

Here, C is workin' AC's sunglasses from the hospital tanning bed.

AM loves her new/ old chair... where are lamb, pig and cow?

C wanted to be "burrito-ed" like the baby. This is also called swaddling.

C and AM love their baby sister.

Here they are in the hospital the day she was born. AM can't wait to get her hands on AC!!

AM is infatuated with the "paci". She loves it, she loves to give it to the baby!

"Give AC a hug!!"

"Give AC a kiss!"

"Give C a kiss!"

Grandparents love their grandkids...

Even more then their regular kids, I think!!

Papa loves AC

Pops loves AC

Granny loves AC

Gramma loves AC

How lucky are we? Baby was born on Friday, 5/8. We were surrounded by grandparents. We had so much help with C and AM. B even managed to make it to C's soccer game Saturday morning. Granny came to the hospital so that Gramma and Papa could go watch the game, too. We have the best grandparents ever. They are all so helpful. THANKS GRANDPARENTS!!!

A special note to the grandparents: Words cannot express how grateful we are to you. You have given to us and been so generous to us over the last 10 years. Our hope is that we are able to give as much to our children and grandchildren as you have to us. We're the luckiest people in the world.

She has arrived!!

AC was born yesterday at 11:14am. B and I arrived at the hospital at 5:30am and things got moving pretty quickly. She was born at 11:14 a.m., was 8 lbs 11 oz and 21.5 inches long :)

She is doing well, but will have to stay and extra day because she is "coombs-positive" which means that her blood type and my blood type don't get along. Both of her older siblings had some wicked jaundice, which is usually made worse by a positive coombs result, so they are taking extra precautions. No need to worry though. She is doing very well, eating, sleeping, etc.

WHOA!! What was that?!?!?!?

Oh... It was my due date. But it is gone now :(

Is it too much to ask for me to experience the drama of going into labor? I am not going to have any exciting or funny stories to tell the kids about "when I went into labor at the movies and my water broke" or "when I went over the railroad tracks and my water broke" or "the day after my due date, I went into labor" or " I was pulling up the tomato plants" or "or I was picking blueberries" .


Does this mean she is going to be difficult?
