Sisterly Love

Anyone who knows me knows that my sisters are my best friends. When I am with them I feel complete.

Sorry girls, this is the most recent photo I have of all of us! Obviously we need a new one (look at how young Jo is!).

When Audrey was born Leah was there to help me. She would hold Audrey, try to soothe her, try desperately to get rid of Audrey's hiccups, she gave me the help and support I desperately needed at the time. Leah kept me sane.

Joanna was here to help me when Phoenix was born. He was a much easier newborn than Audrey (no offence to her) and with Travis here to help me I could handle Phoenix. Joanna took over a lot of my motherly duties with Audrey. She was so incredibly helpful. Jo is stricter with Audrey than I am (that's a good thing). Jo did everything in her power to make things easier for me. I can't thank her enough for all the help she gave me. She stayed with us for almost a month. When she left last week the house felt quiet, and I felt like part of me was missing.

All of my sisters (I am lucky enough to have 4 of them!) are always there for me when I need it. I am so grateful to have all of them in my life. I love my sisters.

Wahoo!!! He is so beautiful Rachel!! Just perfect. I love his little nose. You look absolutely amazing in that picture from the 4th right before he was born. SO happy for all of you--So glad it was all good. Matthew (my 2nd) was born on his due date too. Didn't know that statistic about being born on the due date. I love that picture of all you girls together. And love you!!!
