Our Little Lady

I want to introduce our newest family member, who joined our family just over two months ago now. (And let me tell you those two months have flown by, which is putting me is a state of panic because my children are growing up way to fast.)

So, without further ado here is miss Emma Beth Lee Rasmussen.

She weighed 7 lbs 15 oz and was 19 in long.

She loves to snuggle and her daddy has been eating that up.

Her brother loves her to death and hugs and kisses her every chance he gets.

She has been such a blessing to me and to our family.  She has shown us that our hearts can grow even more then we ever knew.

I came across this poem and I feel that it defines me right now.

Cleaning and scrubbing can wait till tomorrow, for babies grow up, I’ve learned to my sorrow.
So, settle down cobwebs, dust go to sleep, I’m rocking my baby and baby’s don’t keep.

So, while I am over here trying to take in every moment with my precious kiddos, I hope you have been enjoying your new year!

From my Family, to Yours..

A Family of Fifths

One year ago today the cutest, most sweet, little rascal of a boy joined our family.

image

By joining us one year ago today he insured that our whole family would continue the tradition of being born on the fifth!

image

It was a beautiful day and we truely have been greatly blessed this past year!

image

He has changed us for the better. Our love and joys have grown deeper.

image

He gave us meaning to our lives and has changed the way we view the world.

image

We are seriously in love with him more then we could ever describe.

image

Its true some days are harder then others.

image

Some days nothing really goes right and we are all grumpy…

image

but even still those days are a million times better then any great day with out him in our lives.

image

And because we experience the tough days we come to appreciate the good days even more.

image

Without the bad we can not fully appreciate the good,

image

and our joy can not otherwise be full.

image

And what a full joy being a mother brings!

image

I am so thankful for our little blessing, and only hope that we can live up to the great responsibility that is before us.

From our Family to yours…
