The first week

10 days old - time is just flying by around here. And even though I've intended to take lots of pictures of her, my time is mostly spent just holding sweet Clare. Life is mostly peaceful and serene...and I'm soaking up the moments with my daughter.














The boys are enjoying lots of Grandma time, but she is leaving in a couple days. The real test will be on Monday when I am by myself with the 3 of them for the first time (as in, can I really do this?????).

You will do a wonderful job with three kids. I have just learned not to expect much sleep.

That's nice that she likes to cuddle :)

These pictures make me want to meet my little guy so bad!

She is beautiful, Rachel. Do the boys just love on her non-stop. Asher was asking every day to hold Faith. I can't wait to see more pics.

I'll be praying for you as you adjust to the new normal. I know you will do a great job. ...and to think, I sometimes feel overwhelmed with one! So nice to see new pics of your sweet girl!

Please keep the pictures coming, she is darling. I love checking in on your little family.
You'll do just fine with three.

Clare is so gorgeous! I'm sure you will do great when your mom leaves. Just remember to rely on the Lord for His strength.

I've never commented on your blog before but I "found" it while looking at the Money Saving Mom's coupon post.

Congrats on your beautiful daughter by the way! She is precious;).

I am writing to ask if I may use the photos of your coupon organizing method in a coupon workshop that I've been asked to do at my church. It looks like a neat way to organize coupons and I'd like to present the idea to the ladies that will be in attendance. If you are willing to grant permission to allow use of the photos, I would be so appreciative. If not, I will understand as well. My email is mrfeehan@knology.net.

Thank you for considering!
