"M" is for...Meet the Family

The Anderson kids were happy to be introduced to the newest member of the team. Mom and dad are now outnumbered two to one - what have we got ourselves into?

Anali was the first to get to hold her and she was thrilled to meet her new baby sister and wanted to hog her all for herself.

We were finally able to pry her away from Anali and give Aden a turn. Maybe Aden just doesn't like hospitals, or maybe he is just overwhelmed knowing that there is now a whole pack of sisters that he has to deal with, but he was pretty quiet during the first visit. He did love holding Adalyn and was very sweet to her.

Avalon waited impatiently for her turn and then was very excited to get to hold Adalyn. She spent the next ten minutes figuring out what she was allowed to do and not do. For example she gently touched Adalyn's nose and when that didn't really do anything she decided that she would push the nose harder until either Adalyn squeeled or Dad told her to stop.

Adalyn is sure to get more attention than she could have ever dreamed of - we are all so excited to welcome her to our family!

And if Adalyn enjoyed getting to know brother and sisters - i can only imagine her excitment in meeting all of the cousins. Just keep her little until we get there.
Great Kids!

Congratulations! All of your kids are darling! I love the pic of Anali with Adalyn... she has the sweetest little face on like she is going to take care of her forever. Tell Aden he will get used to it... Will plays Barbies, watches Hannah Montana, and tells Ellie she should cut some bangs... yikes!! :) Congrats on becoming a big huge family of six!!

She is sooo beautiful, I love her name!! Way to go, you did a great job. I cant believe how much older Anali is, I hate it when kids grow up!

She is such a beautiful baby! All of your kids look adorable. I love the part about Avalon seeing just what she could get away with.
The pregnancy pictures are cute and I totally get what you are saying in regards to lasts. Every so often still something happens and I will fill a little emotional knowing this is the last time I will ever be in this stage again. You have an adorable family. Have a great day!
