Claire Bear's 2!

Claire's Birthday was on July 7th but, we had it a little late. I was still recovering from having a child...I'm surprised I even remembered. We had a elmo party just like Haley did when she was 2.She thought it was weird when we all sang Happy Birthday to her. This is the face she made the whole time we sang. Maybe she's just disgusted by our voices.

We got Claire an Elmo car and she was really excited about it. This is a picture of my sweet princess ripping Chase off her new car..... sharing is caring is her motto.

This picture shows how much Chase is like his father, trying to get a peek. And how Mila is like her mother by letting him.

My poor husband, I make him do everything

She's Here!

For those of you that didn't know I have birthed my baby. Addison Jean was born on June 30th. Everything went really well and fast. I got to the hospital at 9pm and had her at a little after 11pm. I made sure it wasn't too fast to get my epidural. I still felt a lot and have a whole lotta respect for those who do it natural.
She was a big girl 9 pounds 7 ounces and 21 in long. I could have sworn she was going to be small but, the word small and Melissa don't mix. She's a really good baby, she just still has her nights and days mixed up. I'm staying at my moms which is a huge blessing. She watches the other girls while Addison and I nap. I dread going home. Anyway, I feel really good, better than with both other girls. I just keep thanking the Lord for how well everything went. Ben says it's so easy we could have 4 more...He's still recovering in the hospital.

Here's my cute little family on 4th of July. I was so lonely while they went and celebrated without me, I kinda like them a lot!
