Welcome Home Baby Kate!!

Ethan LOVES his baby sister. He is always asking "may I hold him?"

Playing dress up!!

We are all home and adjusting to our new family. Ben's mom has been here all week saving me from complete exhaustion. She drove from Michigan the morning Kate was born to stay with the boys while we were in the hospital and to help once we came home. Ben and I are loving our little girl. The boys think she is pretty great too, although she is off limits to Luke. He thinks that she is for poking and smooshing. Ben and I were praising the Lord for giving us 3 healthy, beautiful children. He is so good!!
