Our 4th baby is here and our life has been crazy busy and so amazing at the same time. She is actually 8 days today and we are still all alive and well, God is good. Thank you so much for all the congratulatory messages on the arrival of our sweet girl.
I want to take you back to the day we became a family of six. I always dreamed of having a family full of kids and God totally answered that prayer. I also always dreamed of having a daughter and that dream totally came true when baby girl arrived on 9 July. You guys, I didn't even know how much I wanted to have a daughter until the good Lord answered that prayer. My heart is so full right now. Three amazing boys and one beautiful healthy girl is my total dream come true.
Hanging out with my girl and matching for the first time. I still can't believe that I have a daughter.
The day before she arrived, we had another non stress test to check on baby girl and make sure she was ok. I had been wearing pink everything the last week in preparation of the baby's arrival.
Well that same night like every night for the past 2 weeks, I started having braxton hicks contractions. Nothing painful just constant contractions for a couple of hours. Normally after the couple of hours the contractions would stop but this time they didn't. They just kept getting closer and closer. When they got to be about 10 minutes apart, I woke hubby up and we headed to the hospital.
We got to the hospital around 2:30am and were told we couldn't be checked in because I wasn't in active labor. Luckily my doctor had a note in my file about my fast labor so they kept us for observation. Well, my fast labor did not disappoint because less than 2 hours later I went into active labor and was 4cm dilated and less than 2 hours later baby girl made her grand entrance. She arrived safely into our arms after only a few pushes. I swear, I have been blessed with fairly easy and fast deliveries and I thank God everyday for that blessing.

My family came to visit the next day. I love this crew so much and I love that we all live close enough to get to share all these special moments in life
We are so happy that our baby girl arrived safely into our arms. Meeting our 4th child was just as amazing as meeting our other babies. I just love that no matter how many times we go through this baby making business, each time feels so special. Welcome to the world baby girl, we are so happy to have you here with us, you are the perfect addition to our family. Our family is now complete and we are so thankful for this new blessing. Thanks be to God.
