A family of 5 and a dream come true

- Posted using BlogPress from my iPhone

When I was growing up I had so many dreams and goals. Some of these dreams changed or faded away, some morphed into other things, but my biggest dream of all has finally comee true.... I wanted to be a mom with at least 3 children, have a supportive and loving husband and live a simple and happy life. I am officially blessed and can say that I have reached this goal. I am a mother of 3 happy, healthy, beautiful children. I remember after my first I worried that because I loved him sooo damn much, that I wouldn't have enough room in my heart for more. I assure you a parent's heart can grow exponentially. I have watched my husband and his love for all of us and in awe and appreciation I wonder how I got lucky enough to have found him. So as you might have guessed, Vivienne Rose Alves is here With my husband by my side we welcomed our last and biggest baby into the world at 8:48pm on May 12, an early Mother's Day gift. She weighed 8lbs 7.4 ounces and beat her big sister by only .04 of an ounce. She is 20.5 inches long. She is perfect and pink and chubby and we love her. I will post our birth story later...but I can tell you it was fast!
