Increase







Here are a few pictures of Preston's arrival! I'm so sorry for the delay in posting! We have had a beautiful and very busy few days once arriving home from the hospital and I am still trying to recover as well as make sure every single heart is doing okay here and isn't feeling left out in any way....that is so important to me.






Minutes old with Big Daddy. He is overwhelmed by the Father's love and bursting with gratitude!






These tiny feet have increased our household made a permanent impression on our hearts forever.......







I was worried about our youngest and how he would respond since he has been the baby in our house for 2 years and 5 months.....






We brought him in first and alone to meet his baby brother for the first time.....





This was his immediate response. All worries were put to rest and there were lots of tears of joy.....






The baby girl in our house took to Preston like a mother hen. She was SO sweet to him!!






Big brother had the same response. Grateful. Thankful me.......






And sweet Bella with baby brother.....oh the joy of these two together.....sweetness magnified.




Big brother and big sister gifts for all the kids hand delivered by my sister.......I have always wanted my sister to be present for the births of my children and the distance separated us and she was never able to be present.  But God is so good.....she was able to be present this time and she blessed my family in such beautiful ways. It was like Christmas for my babies! She picked out multiple gifts for each child based on their likes and interests and blessed them so much!!! My heart was bursting with joy.......





Big Daddy and the girls with Preston....







Meeting brother for the first time.......





Little Mama Bears.....






My beautiful niece....she loved holding and cuddling baby Preston!




Toy city in my hospital room thanks to YaYa! We even had a tea party!






My first born and my youngest gifts.......His grace poured out......





Mae~ Mae and Preston.






My three sons!!!!!




My beautiful sister, me and the Prince!






The tiniest feet....





Our sweet boy......





Leaving the hospital!





I hope to post again soon with more pictures and things to share. Trying to rest and recover this week. Thank you again for all of your love, support and prayers! It has meant so much to our family....

Sibi, you are a courageous woman and I'm happy all went well and you have returned home. What you say about making sure no heart feels left out and than how you introduces each child to the new born..I find that real parenting skill, you know. Happy dad..lucky man...never a dull moment for him, hey.

I breathed a sigh of relief when you said your sister was there. I am so happy that you do have some family that is supportive. I've worried about that so much with you.
I'm happy for you and your lovely family. I know you're going to be so busy, but I do hope you find the time to keep writing. It's your calling, my love.

Speaking of writing, I hope to be in Memphis on my book tour this spring. Do you live near Memphis? I'd love to meet you and your family.

Sibi, could these pictures be any sweeter?? And look at your beautiful little self leaving that hospital. Girl. I was wheeled out in yoga pants, a fraternity tshirt, and a broken down pony tail. Mmm hmmm.

I'm praying for extra special memories to be made these next few weeks, and for Him to hide them in your heart to keep FOREVER. Hope all is well, super mom! :)

Love,
Becca

I am beyond happy to see this post. What a beautiful little prince you have and the other pearls are in love already, you can just tell. My heart is filled with joy to know your sister was able to be there. You look AMAZING leaving the hospital, you are the epitomy of grace.

I heard something in a sermon last Sunday that I want to share with you that I will email to you for reading later.
