There is something about a newborn baby that brings everyone together filling their hearts with joy and love!!!

"There is no one perfect way to be a good mother. Each situation is unique. Each mother has different challenges, different skills and abilities, and certainly different children. The choice is different and unique for each mother and each family. Many are able to be “full-time moms,” at least during the most formative years of their children’s lives, and many others would like to be. Some may have to work part-or full-time; some may work at home; some may divide their lives into periods of home and family and work. What matters is that a mother loves her children deeply and, in keeping with the devotion she has for God and her husband, prioritizes them above all else." Elder M. Russell Ballard   “Daughters of God,” Ensign, May 2008, 108–10 

Last night I fell in love...again
the newest arrival to our family
He was 7lbs 15oz and 21 1/2 inches long
Born March 7th 2012
at 5:51PM

Waiting and waiting for the doctor to come

" of the greatest things a father can do for his children is to love their mother."

We all wanted to hold him soooo bad

Ethan and Grayson

He may not be my baby, but I love him like he is.
Last night as I left the hospital I suddenly felt a sense of separation anxiety come over me and the thought of leaving Grayson made me want to stay all night.
It's amazing to me how with one look into those innocent eyes you fall in love and want to give them the whole world.
Many happy blessings to my aunt and uncle on their new bundle of joy!
