meet the family

So last night we strapped Asher's helmet to him, said a little prayer and got ready for him to meet the family.

(their cute shirts)

Seth loved him! He did exactly what Emma did at 18 months when she met Luke for the first time. He screamed and threw a fit when we took him out of his arms!
Tantrum avoided with a cracker in each hand.

You have never seen a boy more in love than this one!
Caleb ADORES his little brother.
While everyone else played with the toys Asher gave them, Caleb sat and
rubbed his head and skin and talked about how soft he is.

Gianna could hardly contain herself!
She was so excited she couldn't sit still.
She keeps asking when he will start eating food.

Luke was super excited to hold his little brother but
got quickly bored with the whole thing...
His biggest question was if Asher was here then why is my belly still so big? Hmmm thanks Luke!

So here is the one I'm going to have to watch!
She thinks he is hers.
She is the one that will end up picking him up and taking him to her room to "play."

We've all wondered how Emma was going to do. She wanted a little girl so badly.
She even bought bows and little pink shoes for her sister.
She hasn't mentioned wanting a sister since Asher has been here.
She loves him and spends every second possible doing what you see above.

Here's the whole crew!
I can't believe they are all mine!
How blessed am I?!
What a merciful God to bless me so richly!

And our friend Ms Kim.
Who helped my mom drive to the hospital in a moments notice.
We love you miss Kim!!!
