June Highlight: I Grew Another Heart!

When I was pregnant with my 2nd child, I was concerned about how I was going to equally love both of my children.  My precious 1st born was so dear to me that I couldn't imagine loving another child as much as him.  At that time, a dear friend told me that each child you have you just grow another heart. She was so right!  At the moment of each of my children's births, I love them so completely.  I am now an abundantly blessed mama with 4 hearts!♥♥♥♥

My sweet Baby Caleb is a "part-time" easy,calm baby.  He likes to sleep through the day & be up through the night just like he did in the womb.  So, I'm going to do some serious schedule adjusting once he gets a little older.  In spite of that, it's been a good 1st week. We are so blessed to be a family of 6!  Here are some snapshots of our week.

The girls are so excited to have little brother home

Christian's probably thinking, "I can't believe I finally have a brother!"J
