On delivery day, my sweet mom and sisters offered to watch my kids. Here they are waiting patiently for their daddy to take them to Firth.
The last pregnant picture!

Our sweet little Kasen was breathing fine when he first came out and then started to "grunt" a lot which indicated he wasn't breathing like he should. The nurses called the doctor, and he said to put him on an IV, so I didn't get to see him for about an hour and a half. It was a little scary, but the IV perked him right up, and he did great after that.

I was having one of those "baby blues" moments in the hospital, and my beautiful and amazing sisters dropped what they were doing and came to visit me. I have never felt so loved! When they left, I looked at each of them and started to cry. They are each faithful mothers and such great examples to me. I was so grateful they came and will always remember that day!
To all my sisters...I love each of you so much, and thank you for your sacrifice that day! I only wish all of them could have been there.
My handsome husband was amazing the whole time. He is such a strength to me. While I was getting prepped for the c-section he had to stay out of the room. When he finally was able to come in with me, he touched my forehead and instantly calmed me. I knew everything would be alright. He is my rock.
To my husband...I love you, babe. You are the father of my children and the man I will be with forever. I couldn't have asked for a better man to share my life with. Thank you for all you do and have done to show me that I am the love of your life. You certainly are the love of mine!

I have 3 Kids...When did that happen?
I absolutely CANNOT get enough of this angel.

My biggest helper right now is Jaida. She loves to go get diapers and anything else I might need. She's growing up way too fast.
It took my sweet Kamden a couple of days to warm up to Kasen, but now he wants to hold him and is SO CONCERNED when he cries. They will be the best of buddies...hopefully!

I love this post, and so grateful I was able to be there only 30 min. after you delivered! Kasen is so precious and I hope we will get to see you before you head to DC. I was so honored to help watch Jaida and Kam! They are so cute and I loved getting to know them better. I know you are anxious about DC, but I am so excited for the time you will have with your little family. You are strong and I know you will be blessed. I love you-Nic
