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!!

She is beautiful - and I love her name :)

Glad the boys love her (although it sounds like Luke isn't sure how to channel his love at this point). She is beautiful!

I am so glad your mother-in-law was able to come help!

Congrats! She's such a little cutie. Did the boys have dark hair when they were born? Hope all continues to go well. My boys still love Sydney like crazy!

Hey guys! SO glad to hear all the news - especially about new little Kate!! She's a beauty. Glad mom could come and help out again - she looks like such a proud Gma! :o) Glad to hear about everything else going well too. I haven't been on here in a while so i haven't checked very faithfully. The summer sounded busy, but wonderful. It's so neat to see God at work. I absolutely LOVE the new place. It is gorgeous!!! I hope we can find a place half that nice this next year to settle in for a while. You've both done such a great job at making it look so homey and beautiful. Miss you both! SO happy to see my new little niece. Give everyone our love!

Congrats! She is beautiful. I'm praying for you to adjust to the no sleep weeks! It's so hard to enjoy those newborn days when there's so much to do with the other two. Love you guys!

Kate is so beautiful! I'm so glad you're enjoying your little girl. I cracked up at the dress up picture - I always knew you had to have a girl. :-) Hope you're getting some sleep too!

Congratulations! What a beautiful little girl, and a beautiful name too! Kate was always one of my favorite girls' names before we found out we were having boys. And you've encouraged me that maybe my 3rd child will be a girl. I'm due with my second boy in about 2 months and am afraid I'll never have a girl!

I haven't checked your blog a lot lately, but am adding it to my reader, and I just wanted to say, I am in love with your kitchen! It's SO awesome and must be a huge blessing. :)
