Little Brother

We are so dang happy to have Kade home with us. He's been home for two weeks now, and we just can't get enough of him. He's such a good baby. It feels like he's always been part of our family. Liv is the sweetest big sister ever. She loves to snuggle him and is always making sure he's got his binky. I just love seeing her interact with him. It's precious.
Since Kade was born, I finally feel like myself again. I feel like the weight of the world has been lifted off of my shoulders. It's no secret that the past nine months have been extremely difficult and anxiety ridden, but seeing this precious little man in the delivery room made it all worth it.
Having Kade home has made me think of Harper. It has really made me realize all of the wonderful things I missed experiencing with her. The precious cries, the sleepless nights, snuggling, looking into his eyes. I cherish every moment.
Though Kade has most certainly not replaced my little Harper, the pain has been eased a bit by holding this sweet baby in my arms.
I'm so grateful for my two wonderful children at home and my baby girl in Heaven watching over our family.
Here's some pics of life at home with my little stud. I think he's quite darling, but hey, I'm the mom!

This picture is my favorite! Liv dressed brother as Harry Potter!

Baby Kade Is Here!

It's no secret that this has been the most stressful pregnancy ever for Kelsey! After losing Harper a year ago, there was always that thought in the back of our minds that we could lose this little guy as well.

Obviously, we didn't lose him, but he came four weeks early and is currently in the NICU getting some help breathing.

Here are some picts...
