Each night, she sleeps beside me & snuggles into my chest to hear my heart beat …


She wakes up with the sweetest smile on her face. Starts the morning cheerful and cooing.


And she stays happy and content for most of the day — so long as she is near me & the girls.


She’s super chatty, loves to kick her little feet about, has learned to roll to her side and smiles at each of her sisters in admiration.

She truly fits perfectly into our little {big} family.



She is held.

She is snuggled constantly.


She is loved.


I cannot picture our family without her – and I cannot imagine if we stopped at four – four sounded good, right? Four girls, happy, healthy … but yet, my heart knew Leia was to come. What love she has brought into my life. It is as if she stretched my heart to a new size, filling it with anticipation of another lovely chapter of baby-loving in our family. I am SO thankful to have the blessing of a fifth baby … Happy {almost} four months, my little princess Leia. I knew we needed to grow to five. xxxoo
