As many of you know, Blake was a HUGE surprise to us. We were not planning to have any more kids for another year or two after Layla and.... Surprise! We found out we were having Blake shortly after we learned we had to move here. We were very, very scared at first and had no idea how we were going to handle all of the stresses. We also (me especially) felt really guilty that Layla wouldn't have all of our love and attention for very much longer and she would soon be sharing it with another sibling. Fast forward about 9 months and how much can change! We are so happy that are kids are so close in age and we could not have prayed for Layla to be sweeter and kinder to her little brother then she already is. She LOVES him so much and it is as if he has always been in our family. She always wants to hold him, is always kissing him and hugging him and bringing him "gifts" in his crib. When he is upset, she is upset. When he is happy, she is happy. She has not shown any jealousy at all, and for a toddler that is amazing. Since Blake was born Layla has matured in me and Tyler's eyes more then we could have ever imagined. We are so proud and impressed with Layla and we love our family of four and love the plan that God has put in place for us.
