Our little Blessing


We blessed our sweet little Queen Bee a week ago on December 27. Her Daddy, gave her a wonderful blessing. The Boss said that during the blessing, he felt like it was just he and Queen Bee, and nobody else was around. It was very intimate... and beautiful.

Having Queen Bee has truly been an amazing blessing. I was a little nervous about adding the #3. So many people told me about how it was their most difficult transition. I guess I set myself up for the worst... and it has turned out to be the best! She has been such a great baby. She sleeps great, she eats great, and she plays great! Of course I think she is the most BEAUTIFUL girl on earth. The boys just absolutely adore her. They love giving her kisses and hugs ALL THE TIME. Big Brother repeats everything I say to her. So, he mostly calls her "pretty girl", and "sweety". Mama's Boy gives her big kisses and every time he finishes he says "ohhhh, sooo sweeet". Mama's Boy also loves to constantly bring me ALL of her blankies. Then he drags them all over the house yelling, "memma bankies, baby memmas". Although I think sometimes she may feel like she is being attacked by them, (nothing like two little giant heads directly in your face), she smiles every time them come up and talk to her. It brings tears to my eyes watching the two boys interact with her. Neither one has shown the slightest bit of jealousy. They just love her so completely. I feel like they are already protective of her. I hope they will always be close and use one another to lean on in times of need. It is so special seeing them together.

She is growing like a weed and I'm just not ready for her to leave the newborn stage! She is already too big for her 0-3 month clothes! She is starting to coo and LOVES to smile now. Queen Bee has so many people around her that love her already. I am so grateful for everyone that came and participated in her blessing. I'm grateful for those that came to support her and those that couldn't make it, whom I know love her. We are excited about our growing little family. My wonderful husband and amazing children are the light of my life. I love them so much!

How special that Aaron felt like it was only them up there. A I love that your boys are so gentle with her. I wish I could say the same about Shyla with her brother. She carrys him all over the house and shoves him in her playhouse so they can play together! Haha!

What a Beautiful little family you have! It couldn't happen to two more beautiful people, both inside and out! We love having you close so we can hug them and watch them grow. They do grow up to fast though, so injoy every minute of them!

She is SUPER cute! I love the pics with her bow - and very beautiful blessing dress! You guys had quite a crew for the blessing - that is awesome! And I agree with you - I was totally prepared to be SO in shock by number 3, and it was fab!

So cute! All three of them! You should talk your mom into driving up here with you... I think Eugene is only like 7 hours... not too bad. It has been forever... pretty sure A.J. was only 4 months old and Jackson 7 mos... so it's probably time. I'm sure our kids would have a blast together! And I totally have had the same experience going from 2 to 3 kids. Heard lots of "hard transition" stories, but so far it's been great! Hope you guys are doing well!
