Pictures of Vivian

Okay, here are few pic's of the last few days. This first one is of Tim and I on our way out the door to the hospital Saturday morning at about 830am.

Fast-forward 12 hours to around 830pm, and here we are our girls getting to see their new sister for the first time! Actually, this was the first time I got to see her as well, besides the brief minute in the OR.

Our four girls: Marika (6), Shaelyn (3), Kyla (21 months) and Vivian (2.5 hours)

Just before leaving the hospital at 12pm today
Vivian in her car seat
I was thinking on the way home that this would be the first time we haven't had balloons outside the door for the birth of one of our girls - it was our tradition back in Canada. The thought made me very sad! When we got home, we had two special signs, And balloons! =)

That's all I'll post today, will try to get on here in the next little while with more updates of all that's happening around here. If you think of it, could you please pray for Shaelyn and Kyla who are sick with the flu right now? Thanks!

I love the pictures! I love the look on Shaelyn's face when she's holding Vivian (almost the same look she had when she held Moka?) and I LOVE the one of you (Steph) and Vivian too. What a sweet little (big?) family! Wow, the SIX of you!
I can hardly wait to show my students tomorrow. Congratulations!!!
Love you all so much,
Mark and Rebekah

Congratulations Steph! and the rest of the family! So glad that things went well and that you can be home already. Vivian DOES look like a big cutie. Our family started off with four girls too and we had a blast growing up. I'm sure your girls will too. Anyway, hope your other girls feel better very soon and a speedy recovery for you as well.
