Family of Four!!

On Sunday, July 4, 201o at 9:57am our family grew from 3 to 4. Our precious little girl, Presley Anne, was born weighing 7 pounds, 13 ounces and 20.5 inches long. She came to this world with a ton of beautiful jet black hair. There was no better feeling than hearing that little cry when she arrived. We are so blessed. She is now 4 weeks old today as I am writing this and WOW...time has flown already. She is doing great and growing everyday. Her hair is turning curly, which I love!! She is as sweet as can be except when she's out...the girl has some lungs! She cries much louder than Brooke ever did so we just have to laugh sometimes at how mad she gets!! Brooke has adjusted so well. She wants to be involved with her as we are doing things with Presley. She helps us change her diaper (she actually is mostly curious about Presley's "poops" as Brooke calls it). She likes to help us feed her and loves to tickle Presley's feet. The only time Brooke doesn't really care for Presley is sometimes when Daddy is holding P. Brooke wants him to hold her instead but besides for that...all is good. We are amazed at how fast the past 4 weeks have gone by. We were so blessed to have had help from Scott's Mom, Aunt Judy, my Mom, and so many friends that have brought us countless dinners and gifts. We feel so lucky to have such wonderful people in our lives. Thank you all so much for being so thoughtful and generous. Right after our little angel was born...
She's here!!

I am still in amazement that we have 2 little girls. God is good.
Proud Papa!
