Kindergarten Girl

We officially have a kindergartner! Gabby was nervous this morning, but when I picked her up, she was a pro and ready to go back tomorrow! Our teacher is great, and she is a great match for Gabby. We look forward to many more great days!

The Addition

So I haven't been blogging much lately. Here's the main reason, in all his sweetness:

Nathaniel Isaac was born June 29. 7 lbs. 1 oz., 2 1/2 inches long.
Ellie is constantly wanting to touch his hands and feet, and for a couple of weeks Gabby couldn't stop talking about how cute he is.

Since his birth, he's been waking about every three hours to eat, which makes for one tired momma! The past couple of nights he's slept 4-5 hours in the first stretch. Hopefully he'll keep stretching that!

He smiled for real for the first time this past Saturday. First at his daddy, then at mommy. He even gave the nursery worker Sunday night a couple of grins. Now, of course, he hasn't smiled since!

We love having three kids, but it sure it a lot of work! The exhaustion is just temporary, (we hope!) and so worth it. Why, already one month has already passed! It all passes so quickly. I pray I focus on what matters and cherish these little ones God has entrusted to us!
