FOUR

then there were FOURthen there were FOURthen there were FOURthen there were FOUR
Once there was three... and then there were FOUR!!!

The girls are doing so well with Glow. Soul is the most animated about it all and Glow is the only name she will say. She doesn't even say Brave or True! I was really worried about how she would do with having a new baby around, but Soul is absolutely loving the new role she has been given! Every morning, she wants to see her and talk to her and usually, wherever Glow is, is where she wants to be. I think she found herself a new partner!

Things are well here. I am trying to nap when I can, Ben's mom has been wonderful handling the older two girls, Ben has been under the weather so sadly hasn't held Glow since we came home from the hospital, Glow is glowing with all the love she is being given, and we are all just trying to find a new rhythm to our days. Though, I think it will be a bit of time until that rhythm becomes steady.

I have so much to say and write and record from these past few days, and I am sure all these emotions and memories will trickle into a post soon. The thing most of you may be curious about is how birthing went and I have a flood of emotions attached to that isn't quite ready to make it out of my heart, but I will say this... hypnobirthing is a wonderful way to birth. Until then, thank you all for the love you all have been sending and continue to send!

  14. i have three little sisters (no brothers). seeing your four girlies is so heartwarming and familiar. in our family, #1&2 paired off as best buds, and #3&4 did the same. looks like soul and glow are on their way towards that already! :)

  16. So happy for you guys! And can't wait to hear about your hypnobirthing experience, though I know that childbirth is such a special, sacred thing, you just want to keep it tucked away to yourself! And four girls, wow, what a great time they will have growing up. Hope your recovery is going well. xo, Jenn

  27. That is a real blessing that Soul is doing so good. When I had my 2nd, my first was 20 months and he was an emotional wreck for over a month, but now they are playmates. What a great set you have.

  28. true looks like such a big sister! brave has the best camera faces! and i'm glad soulie is adjusting well to glow. we will have to come over and see you soon! let us know when you are ready for visitors... isaiah wants to meet his new friend. :)

  29. Whoa! Soul looks so big next to Glow! I'm so happy for you guys to hear that Soul has taken to Glow and has claimed her as her new playmate. So sweet! I imagine the older girls are going to enjoy their role of little mamas once again.
    Hoping for a smooth transition into a family of six and that Ben feels better really soon. I'm sure it kills him that he can't love on Glow with his daddy arms like he wants to.

    Sending the biggest internet hug I have and wishing I could bring you dinner and brownies!
