Meeting Siblings & Coming Home

On Thursday less than 24 hours after Susanna was born
 it was time for her the siblings to meet her!
Susanna was ready and waiting...
 

 
They all crowded into the little room, and gathered around to see their sister....
 
 I was anxious to introduce Susanna to her siblings.
Once they entered the room it quickly filled with chatter and noise,
there were lots of questions and everyone wanting a turn to hold Susanna.
 

Mary Ann was fascinated by the "live" baby doll......

 
Susanna was smothered in 2 year old sister kisses!

This is how Mary Ann pronounces Susanna...
Sus Anda,
so cute!
 
Ruth Ella and Mary Ann were baby hogs!

love it!


Friday morning Arthur/Daddy came to take Susanna and I home,
and boy were we ready!


Susanna was ready to put on some street clothes and break free from the hospital bassinet.

I'm dressed and ready Daddy...

 
We're all completely smitten with Susanna.
 
Tiny toes....
 
~I'm thoroughly enjoying the babymoon~



Buckled in her car seat, and ready to venture out into the real world....
 
 
Welcome home Susanna!!!!!!

Miss Susanna Grace
 
 Home.....
There's no place like home :)
 

Saturday we had a special treat.....
Amanda and Joe came to town for the weekend and to meet their little sister.
It was wonderful to have ALL our children in our home if only for a couple of days.
Lord willing Amanda and Joe will be traveling back this weekend 
for more fellowship, fun, and memory making.
 
We praise the Lord for blessing our family with Susanna,
and the gift of allowing us to parent 12 of His children....
we are unworthy of such a blessings!
 
It is good to give thanks to the Lord,
And to sing praises to Your name, O Most High
Psalm  92:1

She's beautiful. I like all the girly pink. Thanks for sharing the pictures. Hope you get plenty of rest. I love the picture of her surrounded by the bouquets welcoming her home. That one is my favorite.

God bless. Rebecca K.
