Gratituesday - Beautiful Children

I haven't done well at remembering to post for Gratituesdays recently, not because I'm not grateful, but because I don't remember to post on Tuesdays LOL. But this week I MUST post!! Because I have so much to be grateful for!!!! Our beautiful daughter, Lina was born last Thursday. She's healthy & beautiful and we were able to bring her home that same night (which is especially appreciated since our twins were in NICU for a week, it's such a blessing to bring a healthy baby home right away!). We had planned a homebirth but had to transfer to the hospital due to meconium in the amniotic fluid, I'm so grateful for our wonderful midwife who made sure that we had as close to a homebirth experience as was possible. She continued to include our older girls in the delivery, dh was laughing that even as she was coaching me to push Lina out, she was still managing to answer the girls' questions.

I'm grateful for 2 big girls who are absolutely in LOVE with their baby sister. The vast majority of their fights have been over who gets to hold the baby, choose the baby's clothes, etc.

I'm grateful for my mom who's here spoiling us all while I get back up to speed.

Children are such a blessing from the Lord, and we have been richly blessed!
