the girls just keep on comin'

Hi everyone! I'm sorry I've been rather absent for a little while... it turned out to be a VERY busy week. Lots of errands to run, piano lessons to give, children to discipline (I love them more than I can say, bless their little souls, but sometimes it's just one of those weeks, you know?), mountains of laundry, organizing of closets, a family birthday party, and to top it all off, I decided to start on that big painting project. Thank the Lord today was Sunday and it was spent napping on the couch after church, cuddling with all my honey-bunnies, and having a quiet dinner at home watching a movie with family. To have a lovely day of rest after a full and productive week=wonderful!

This post isn't really about my week, though. Onto more exciting things: little girls. Little baby girls. LOTS of little baby girls!

In September, Lisa became a first-time mommy when the adorable Jillian was born. Only days later my good friend Stacie welcomed her little beauty, Lucy. Our fabulous Morgan is due to become a first-time mommy as well ANY DAY NOW when Madeline is born-- I am so excited and can't wait to hear the good news. And some of you may have read that Kourtni is giving Miss Genevieve her eviction notice once Thanksgiving has come and gone... so please, hurry up and be born, little one, we are all so excited to meet you. Lovely Megan is looking forward to the arrival of her first daughter, Kate, come February. Kourtni's sister-in-law Halee, who goes to our church, is also due in February with a little girl named London.

Jillian, Lucy, Madeline, Genevieve, Kate, London... what sweet, sweet blessings (and what adorable names!)

As you all know, in March, one more baby girl is due to arrive. OUR little girl... Rosalie Hope. Oh, I love that she has a name now... our darling daughter Rosalie!!

(In case anyone lost count, that is SEVEN little girls in as many months! Who will be next... Will Colleen and her beautiful belly join the club? Will our darling Davi get to add a girl to her wonderful brood of boys?)

Sharon-- oh my goodness, yes, of course! How could I forget. :) Another Lucy... how sweet! And, Kourtni, I forgot about Missy and Kelly too. Wow!!

Misty said...

that's exciting. I'm just happy to see/hear there is some balance. My world is revolving in circles of little baby boys. Everywhere. Among them is one sweet little girl named lilly, born two weeks ago. Otherwise, there are 16 boys. Yikes... that's a lot of diapers.

Lisa said...

I love the name! It fits so well!

Band of Brothers said...

Morgan said...

ROSALIE! I am in love! What a sweet, perfect name... and it absolutely lives up to her big sisters'. All too beautiful!

Okay, I have to admit that this post pulled out the pregnant tears way too easily... I can't believe how many sweet little girls we're accumulating in such a short period of time, haha.

Rosalie Hope! I love it! It's so adorable and sweet.

And like other people have commented - it goes so perfect with her sisters' names!

I'm sure Rosalie Hope will be just as much of a cutie-pie as Annabelle and Emma!
