Dr. Grace, Big Sister M.D. came up to meet her baby brother right away and absolutely loves him.

We were able to go home on Friday and at the moment I do not have the words to describe the experience. My heart has doubled in size and I am so in love with these two beautiful little people, I cannot believe how lucky Pete and I are.  

I am going to take a break to relish this time, and will be back with project reveals and updates on everything in a few weeks. Thank you all for the support and well wishes!

  7. Oh, Glory!
    Those pretty little hands of Grace’s holding that Mr. Adorable – So heartwarming. (Those eyes!)
    My own children are three years apart and they have an extreme fondness for each other – natural and a bit cultivated by myself and the hubs (they’re now 9 and 6). I can remember the early days of our little boy being new to our family – I have only a couple regrets – but not once did I wish to be anywhere but near them both. Do Enjoy and Soak.It.Up 🙂 Congratulations!
