On the Day You Were Born

Our sweet little "Grace" was born early in the morning. Later that afternoon, after we were able to get a little rest, her siblings all came down to the hospital to see her and hold her for the first time.

"Mom, it must smell reallllyyy good inside your tummy!"

I asked if he'd like to hold her for a few more minutes or let someone else hold her. His response: 
"I want to hold her FOREVER!"

This was actually the only time we have all been together since her birth. The five oldest left with their dad the next morning to travel to their grandfather's funeral... I wish I could have been there too. They are on their way home now though and we will all be together again tomorrow night!
