I bought these really cute shirts that say Daisy on them for my girls to wear just in case I had a Daisy and then I totally forgot about them until 2 days after the birth.
So I just had to put them on the blog.
On another note, we are all adjusting fairly well to being a family of 6. Of course, I've had constant help and a stream of visitors so I'm not sure how I'll do with it all once things settle down. We shall see. Oliver has done the best (surprisingly), he adores his new sister and he has actually been better behaved this week than usual. I have no good pictures, however, because the kid is so darn busy. I think photographing a one year old is one of the hardest things ever. The girls love her but they have had a bit of a hard time with me not feeling 100%. I can't wait until I'm back to normal, either. I know that home birth is not for everyone but I loved, loved, loved it. It's definitely what I'd do again, if there was an again.

Mandy's house saw a birth before ours did. I just hope I don't have to give birth on top of old sheets in the kitchen. Ha!
So, can we say that Spring is here? I mean not officially, but do you think we can put away the puffy coats and snow boots? Today was just glorious. We were outside almost all day between running errands in the morning and hanging out in the backyard in the afternoon. I just love not having to mess with putting 13 layers on my kids before we walk out the door.
Speaking of kids, I would like to give a shout out to Becky Liles who shared with me one of the best tips ever. Oliver was having a coughing fit in the middle of the night and I did just what Becky had told me to do, rub Vicks on his feet and put socks on over it. After about 10 minutes, the coughing totally stopped, just like it always does when I do this. So, thanks Becky for sharing this with me over a year ago!
