Someone told me the other day that when you bring home a new baby...
your home grows 2 feet.  :)

 I believe MY HEART has grown even more...
at least 2 or 3 sizes.  Before having my second child I
wondered how I could ever love another little person
as much as I did my first child. 
Then, amazingly enough when I saw him
my heart SWELLED. 

My love is not divided...

As I've watched my newborn sleep...

I've fallen in love...again!

I've found such joy in watching my first born become
the "big brother"...

Eager to help...and gently love on his "baby bruder."
P.S. He kept calling him "Baby Jesus" for the first week or so. =)

Two beautiful faces...

both unique and special blessing from the Father!

Faces that make you smile...

and laugh out loud...

Bringing joy and merriment into our home...and hearts!

Blessed to have these 3 gorgeous guys in my life...

each of them a blessing sent straight from the LORD! 
Sent to me...
me, the girl who longed for,
but always secretly wondered
if she would ever be a wife and mother.

So thankful for God's rich blessings!


  1. It's amazing, isn't it? It reminds me of the verse, Matthew 7:11
    If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!

  2. Blessings to you! Congratulations and Best Wishes! LOVE those pictures! Take care of yourself :)

  3. Rachel your words took be back 30 years to when I was expecting my second baby and you are so right God multiplies the love. Great job and congratulations again. My only advice you seem to already be doing cherish every minute the we all to soon be grown and on their own.
