Bye Bye Big Girls

Mimi J took the big girls back to Texas with her today.  They're going to be there for a couple of weeks.  We had a photo shoot before they left.





 Daddy was sad dropping them off at the airport by himself!
We're going to miss them!

Fashion Show

Mimi J took big girls shopping today.  Coda and I just hung out at home.

Lyric took some pictures of Story in her new clothes.



Gotta love the barbque pit in the modeling picture;-)

Tonight Cadence did her hair with Mimi J's clip.
It was lovely!

Coda Isabella

We were going home today, so we had to fill out the birth certificate.  This baby had to have a name.  This morning Devon and I went over to The Farm store to use their wifi.   We sat in the car and searched for names on the laptop.  The baby was a little trooper.  She snoozed while we searched.

We found a few we liked, so we made a list to discuss it with the girls...
We all talked about it and eventually agreed on Coda Isabella.  Isabella is pretty close to Arabella, but that's okay we like it:-)
Pamela, our midwife, biked over to check us out one last time.
 We had to stop for a little snack about 20 minutes into the trip, but we all made it home safely.

Our New Baby Day 2

This morning when I woke up I was still really hurting from the complications with the birth.  I'm sure I was very hormonal too.  I started to cry telling Devon I didn't think I was ever going to get better.  He was being so sweet telling me it was going to be okay and remember how it was all worth it because now we have this sweet baby.  Cadence was laying in bed next to me.  She asked," Why is Mommy's tummy as big a it was?"
Devon and I just looked at each other and laughed.  He asked if that made me feel better:-)

Today we spent some time on the screened in porch.  Cadence narrated  this video of the baby.

Pamela came by to check on the baby and Lyric happened to be holding her at the time, such a good big sister!

Thumb sucker?

The baby happened to get her finger in her mouth today and she LIKED it!  I wonder if we're going to have a thumb sucker on our hands :-)

Splashin' Around

Daddy and Mimi J took the girls to the swimming hole today, while the baby and I hung out at the house.

Come See Mama...

While I was in labor, Lyric and Story were in the room.  Cadence came in a few times, but for the most part she did her own thing.  She watched TV and played in the room across the hall.  When she plays she likes to get everything set up and calls it her "set up".  While I was in labor she came in the room and said, "Mama, I want you to come and see my set up."  I told her I was a little busy having a baby and I would have to come later.  Just minutes after Coda was born... I hadn't even delivered the placenta, so I had an umbilical cord hanging out of me.  She came back in the room to see if I was ready to see her set up.
I told her I still couldn't come, but if she would take pictures of it on my phone I would love to see it.  This was her set up:-)







I LOVE the ones with her little feet in them!

And Then There Were Six...














We had a family meeting to vote on the baby's name.  Story made us this sign because Coda was the winner, but Daddy still isn't quite sure.



We added another baby girl to the bunch today.  As of now, she still does not have a name.  Devon has wanted the name Coda for months, but now he isn't sure it fits:-/
