Introducing... (finally)

Titus Colin was born October 26th at around 1:20 p.m.  He was 7 lbs 10 oz and was 20 1/2 inches long.  We all are very, very happy he is finally here!
He is such a good baby.  He fusses only when there's something bothering him; dirty diaper, hungry, he needs to burp.  He is such a little snuggler!  He'll snuggle up and just sleep on your chest and he has the cutest little boy coos you've ever  heard.
Zoe and Max absolutely adore their new brother.  Zoe fell in love with Titus right away, but it took Max a couple weeks to even realize there was a third kid around.  Ha!  Thankfully he is very loving and will give Titus kisses and rub his head.
Speaking of his head...
Did you notice the hair?!
We all were very surprised to see all of that hair -- and how dark it is!  It still blows me away whenever I see it and I can't help but chuckle.  There always has to be an odd one in the family. ;)
It seems like so much has happened in the past three weeks.  I don't even know where to start!
Titus was born.  Duh. =)
While my family was here they helped me potty train Zoe.  She is doing AMAZING!  I am so proud of her!  She wears panties all day while we're home except for when she's asleep.  We are slowly having less and less accidents.  Maybe 1-2 a day.  She is really getting the hang of it.  She cracks me up, though, cause whenever she goes in the toilet she immediately says, "I'm so proud of you Mom!"  Silly girl.
Max can pretty much walk.  He just chooses not to.  I have no idea why!  He would rather crawl around and keep getting his clothes and the top of his socks dirty than walk like a big boy, even though he is encouraged by everyone -- especially Zoe.  Oh well.  The light bulb will come on one day and he'll walk all the time and I'll wish he wasn't so mobile. =)
I quit my job!  I am now a full-time mother and I LOVE it.  Working even a part-time job was absolutely impossible with three babies under the age of 3.  It was kind of stressful making the decision to quit, but I'm thankful God made a way for me to quit and we still be ok financially.  It feels good to worry only about my husband, my kids, our home, the laundry, cooking, etc.  I now have time to enjoy each of my children and not have stress and feel frazzled 24/7.
Life. Is. Good.  That's all I can say.  I feel so incredibly wonderful and I'm so, so thankful for the blessings that God showers on my family and I.  I'm probably the biggest nerd ever, but it makes me giddy writing up chore lists, daily schedules, menu planning, etc. because it means I'm more involved in my family!  I can do crafts and enjoy spontaneous outings because I'm a free woman doing what God wants me to do -- love my children.  I thank Him daily for this opportunity.
Until next time....
(Who know when that will be?! Ha!)


  1. Congratulations! So so happy for you! :)

  2. We were all pretty surprised at all that dark hair too! Congratulations, Grace (and family)...Titus is one good looking boy. :-)

    1. Thanks Emilee! When he was finally born and they put him on my chest it was a little overwhelming because I was so, so surprised to see my baby with dark hair! =D

  3. You have a beautiful family, Gracie. I'm so happy for you.
    Becki had a lot of black hair, like Titus, when she was born. She also had dark skin and black eyes. If we hadn't SEEN her born we would have never believed she was ours. :-)
    That picture of Titus where he's smiling in his sleep is SOOOOOO SWEET! He looks so peaceful and content.

    1. Thanks Aunt Vicki! =) I thank the Lord everyday for my three beautiful babies!
