Here is what is going on here!!

Well, I will start by saying I am finally getting back into the swing of things. It has been a bit of an adjustment. I won't say it has been easy, but it has been worth it. I think one of the reasons I was able to adjust so quickly was all the amazing wonderful friends around me. Pam organized meals for me for a couple of weeks. (Thank you, Pam, Amy, Krissy, Kelly, Cherith, Kristy, Ashley, Kathy, Brenda, Cyndi, Rachel) Amy, Krissy and Ashley all took Blaise and Avery on different days. This was amazingly helpful. Pam picked up my kids from school quite a bit. Brandi sent me a wonderful card. You are the best friends anyone could ask for. I have felt sooooo loved by you!! All the times you were doing those things, I got to sit around and look at this...

I caught her first "accidental" smile!!

We had a birthday party at the YMCA for Bailey!!

Here is the sweet birthday girl. She is 8 now!!

Yes, I am rocking the bows on Maddie!! I love them, why didn't I do this with the first four!!

We had our first real bath!!

And ... the piece de resistance... I think she might have curly hair. You have all seen Billy, how have I not had a curly-headed little girl before now. Here's hoping!!

Anyway, those are a few things going on here!!

It was such a pleasure!

She is so beautiful. I thought she looked just like Avery, but I think I've changed my mind. In the second to last pic, she is making a Blaise face. I think the jury is still out on who she's gonna look like, but one thing for sure, she looks like a Maddie!

Those smiles are so precious!! I think she is especially happy and content being born into a family with so much love waiting for her. I especially love the pink bow pic, I see she's smiling in this one as well!
