perfectly tiny

I can't even tell you how much I adore this smallest-most-perfect-tiny-little-angel-girl! I spend hours every day just holding her and talking to her and looking at her and giggling at every little move she makes. I love her baby noises; the sound of her tiny little breaths, her appreciative nursing grunts, I even l.o.v.e. her saddest little newborn wail!

There is no greater joy than a such a perfect little being. I am still amazed that she is real, that she came from me, and that she is mine all mine:)

the second night of our hospital stay our nurse told me that before she started her shift she saw on the nursing board (i think??) that someone had written, "whoever gets room 3018 gets the cutest baby!"

i didn't see any of the other babies...

but I'm guessing she was right:)

 before baby

after baby

there is nothing in the whole world that is as wonderful as a new baby!

This is the first time the girls saw Mallory:)

Our family, new and improved.

My labor and delivery nurse. She was wonderful! I wish I could have all my future babies here; all the nurses were soooo good to me!!

my oldest baby and my youngest baby

Kaylee brought this ducky just for Mallory. She wrapped it up in the blanket with her:) 

 Here we are getting ready to take Mallory home! Michael was in Blackfoot doing his nursing clinical. We missed him so much!

we brought her home a week ago and we love her more than ever!

Mallory Kate,

For the last several months I have looked forward to each Thursday with anticipation. Each passing Thursday meant I was one week closer to holding you in my arms.

Now that you are here I don't want it to be Thursday. I want to stay in this first week forever. I marvel at your tiny little body. I wonder how it's possible that you are real. Although I carried you inside me for 9 months, I still can't believe that you were in my belly a week ago. I held you across my stomach on your very first night and you got the hiccups. They were the same hiccups that I have been feeling for months. Even then I couldn't believe that you came from me. How are you even possible?

You are a beauty. You are wonderful. You are precious. Your mama loves you. Your daddy loves you. Your sisters adore you. We are so happy to finally have you here. Thank you for choosing our family. I love you, Mally-girl.

Love,  Mommy

We had such a fun "Halloween Day" yesterday. Lily said over and over that it was the "BEST HALLOWEEN DAY EVERRR!!!" She was sooooo happy and excited all day. All three of them were. 
We went Trick-or-Treating with our friend Taylor and the kids had so much fun. It was coooold outside and we were happy to come inside to a warm home when we were finished.
The girls all picked their own costumes. I still think it's so funny that Riley wanted to be a doctor. She is the cuuuuutest doctor I've ever seen!
