Baby Number FIVE Has Arrived!

Tuesday, May 3, 2016

Hi!!!
I have been MIA for the past couple of days...because Baby #5 finally ARRIVED!

We welcomed our precious baby boy, Marshall John, early in the morning on April 29 and are completely smitten by this precious boy!
Marshall surprised EVERYONE when he was weighed and tipped the scales at 11 pounds 2 ounces!! He was 22 1/2 inches long- so apparently I have been growing a linebacker for the past 10 months! HA!
The kids are just absolutely BESIDE themselves with excitement and love for baby Marshall. We are NOT short on hugs, kisses and someone wanting to hold him every second of the day :)
My labor and delivery went a little differently than planned, so I am having a bit of a slower recovery than I am used to with the other kids.  I have had to eat several big slices of humble pie and just accept the fact for the next couple weeks- I can't do EVERYTHING. HA!

I wanted to thank all of you who have been thinking about us and praying for us during my pregnancy and as we anticipated Marshall's arrival! It really has meant so much to me!

It might be a little bit before I find my groove and start posting regularly again. I hope you will be patient with me and check back for updates! 

Hope you have the BEST day!!

  12. Congrats on your newest little guy! How sweet! I'm due in June with my second boy and am nervous about my first becoming a big brother. But it looks like all your kiddos are LOVING it!! Such sweet pictures. So glad you had a safe delivery. Remember, it took 9 months+ to make this babe, so give yourself some time to relax before jumping right back into all your mother duties!
