Our new arrival

It has been far too long since I have written and I can say honestly that I have missed it so much! Imagine my shock when I logged on today to discover that I am very near to 20,000 page views! Wow! When I began this blog I never imagined that I would reach so many people with my words. What an incredible blessing and opportunity.

So, as to my absence... Matthew and I were blessed with the arrival of Reagan Delaney Wilkinson on June 6th, 2012. She was born at 8.2 pounds, 20 inches and a head full of her daddy's dark hair. She is a joy and so different than her brothers. The moment they held her up for me to see she opened her mouth and cried so loudly I smiled. My girl has a voice and she is not afraid to use it- and use it she does! I don't remember the boys crying so much at this stage. Reagan certainly makes her wishes known.

Casey and Connor are adjusting to life with a new sister. They are both fascinated and annoyed by her presence. We have had a few jealousy issues but overall they are great brothers and I know that the three of them will grow to be great friends.

 We have been so busy adjusting to life as a family of 5 but we are all doing great. I am enjoying all the pink clothes and dresses and hair bows and I am loving watching my beautiful boys learning about their sister. I adore watching my husband interact with his daughter- she already has him firmly in the grasp of her tiny little hand. There is so much joy in my heart and love in our home. It is truly a fabulous and wonderful existence I lead.

I am hoping to have more time to update the blog from here on out. I thank you all for reading!

Thanks for all the support.

I have really enjoyed reading your posts. Thank you for sharing your story, your life. Your boys are precious and your "new addition" is beautiful! So glad to see you don't let the negative comments you have gotten in the past get to you or at least you don't show it :). I also have a daughter with special needs. It broke my heart to read a comment on one of your posts that basically said your boys should not have been brought into this world with the challenges they have. My daughter has mental, physical and medical "disabilities" yet she amazes me everyday with her strength and persistence! She does not give up on anything she wants to do! She has changed so many lives including mine for the better. They teach us as much as we teach them! Again thank you for sharing!
