Our Equinox baby!

hannah jane boehme

. . .came into the world on the morning of the first day of Spring, March 20th, 2012. This is known as the spring equinox. A day when there is an equal amount of light and darkness in the world. The light she has brought into my heart and our home is so beautiful and fills me every day as I take care of her needs. Oh how I love this little girl! She came into the world so peacefully, my labor and her delivery were calm and serene and it was truly an experience I will never forget. (if you are having a baby and haven't looked into Hypno-birthing, do i ,you will not regret it)

Hannah weighed 8 pounds 14 ounces
21 inches long
She has lots of dark hair and the most adorable chubby cheeks!

Her birth was so special and that introduction, those first moments just take your breath away as you look at this perfect baby, with tiny fingers and toes and you feel so overwhelmed with love and gratitude for a healthy baby.
In those perfect first moments I felt to savor and let it sink in, deep down, that this would be my last time to experience it all. And in my heart I felt peace.

I am so blessed and lucky to be the Mother of these 6 children. I hope I can be all they need me to be. I love them, each one, with a love that makes my heart want to burst.

Welcome baby Hannah . . . welcome to our world!

hopefully sooner!

What should I do to keep busy so I don't loose my mind? Any suggestions?

I guess I could always clean my house! Got one room clean today! A room a day, sounds like a plan!!

wonder Pets
cat in the hat

i love this boy who loves so many things.
i can't believe he is 3
3 years ago i held him in my arms for the first time, loving his chubby cheeks and big eyes!
on his birthday we celebrated LIGHTNING MCQUEEN STYLE, with a cake and ice cream and presents!
 before all the fun could happen he split his head open and we rushed to the emergency!
we spent 3 1/2 hours waiting for 3 stiches to be put in.  he was so brave.  it hurt my heart to watch him go through that on the night of his birthday party.

but . . .what doesn't kill you makes you stronger! ( thanks Kelly C)
