Our hearts have definitely grown as we have welcomed another beautiful blessing into our family. We have just been enjoying the past few days getting to know our newest addition and adjusting to this new life. Big brothers are enjoying being home with him now that school is out for their Christmas break. Big brother Mattox is probably the most interested and excited about his new baby brother and wants to give him loving pats and kisses all the time. Yes, sometimes those pats are a little too rough, but he is learning. He is also Mommy's biggest helper as he loves to hand me diapers during diaper changes and tries to comfort baby when he cries. I am so proud of him. We are all just so thankful that Grayson arrived safely and are looking forward to a very happy Christmas season with all four of our little men.
Of course, we cannot welcome another baby into our hearts and home without remembering the journey that led us here. Our hearts will always miss our beautiful daughter, Mattie, as we continue to live each day without her with us. Her brothers will continue to know that she exists and that she is a special part of our family. Because of her, we more fully appreciate the unique blessings of each of our children. We are thankful once again that we get to know and love another beautiful baby boy. Here he is!
