There was a huge neighborhood garage sale and my friend Julie gave us 10 huge garbage bags of clothes for the girls, and a ton of stuff for me to give Kirsten too. They gave Brie this rocker and a take along swing. Elle got more porcelain dolls for her collection. My friend Dana sold some of Hans clothes for us at her garage sale, which was so nice of her!!!
Papa Rich and Grandma came up to see Hans play t-ball.

Amber, a teacher I work with and bf at work, came over to see Brie. Although Elle didn't give her a chance. She watches Elle in church and Elle thinks Amber is all hers!!

Scott and Taylor are my favorite couple at school. That could be because I kept encouraging them to start dating. I kept telling Scott when are you just going to ask her out. They have been dating most of this year. Scott made us the best bread and I walk into the kitchen and see crumbs everywhere. Hans ate most of it!! Although he was nice enough to save me a piece.

Mary came to visit and found Brie some cute outfits. One of them was a newborn outfit and it fit her perfectly.

Samantha came to see Briella and brought Hans a ton of rescue hero toys. It has been my saving grace. Hans and Elle play with them for hours.
Elle got the princess crown from Abby and has been wearing it since.

Hans second tball game. He knows the routine now.

Briella makes me laugh. Every time her pacifier gets put in her mouth she makes a face like she can't stand it. After I hold it in her mouth and move it around she adjusts and when you go to take it out she looks at you like what are you doing to me.

Hans started his first day of t-ball. He is improving every time he plays.

For Briella's first week celebration we took her to Chuckie cheese. Although I think it was more for Hans and Elle. She slept the entire time.

My good friend Rachel came over to see her little angel, that is what she calls Brie. Shelby came to play and picked out Brie some of the cutest gifts. Hans and Elle were thrilled to see Shelby.

Briella's first week was great!! We have given her the nickname easy breezy. She is such a good baby. She is now two weeks almost three weeks and my mom said today I think that is the first time I heard Brie cry. She loves to eat and sleep.

Briella Grace born May 6th at 10:40 am. Weight 9 lbs 4 oz, and 21 and 3/4 in.
She is the sweetest little girl!!

All you Star Wars Fans be jealous Hans just met the maker! Hans also got Howard the duck signed by George and Mark got a Star Wars photo of George directing episode 4 signed.

Briella Grace was born on May 6 at 10:40 am.
She definitely has my hands. She has perfect nails and is ready for a manicure.

We came home after 24 hrs. I really wanted to be home with Hans and Elle.

Leaving the hospital. When we came to the hospital on Thursday the weather was perfect. On Friday when we left it was fridged.

Hans is all about the baby. Today he laid down next to her for an hour and watched her sleep.
Elle likes to give Brie kisses, but then she is done.
I am so thankful for my many blessings and my wonderful family. Mark and I love and enjoy our kids so much!!

Mark took a final picture of me before I went to be induced. We left the house at 6:30. I was induced at 7:30, my water was broke at 9:30 and I had her at 10:40. Labor moved so quickly that it had to be a natural birth. There wasn't enough time for an epidural to kick-in. It was not what I had planned for, but the natural birth was not as hard as I thought it would be.
