"If you are still in the process of raising children, be aware that the tiny fingerprints that show up on almost every newly cleaned surface, the toys scattered about the house, the piles and piles of laundry to be tackled will disappear all too soon and that you will—to your surprise—miss them profoundly."
-Pres. Thomas S. Monson

The Baby Boom

I believe that 2013 will be known as "The One With All the Babies."  Would you like to see what I mean?

It all started April 4th.  I woke 2 minutes before my alarm went off to a picture message with this beautiful face~

Leah Grace Pulley
9 or so hours later came our perfect little girl~

Paige Abigail Nicoll
Not wanting to wait any longer to be with her best friends, the next one came rushing into this world less than a week later~

Eva Joan Chamberlain
The next one made us wait.  A week past his due date making his appearance the first of May~

Rune Welch Carter
As wonderfully as it started, May ended just as well~

Paige Elise Nelson

Then came June!  The biggest month of them all!  After false alarms for weeks and weeks, we finally got to meet our twins!

Samantha Kate Wilson

Isaac James Wilson

The month finished with a bang- two boys in a row!  First came~

Calvin Henry Haas

And the next day~

Beau Blaine Wilson

In what felt like no time at all, I left snuggling those sweet boys, only to find myself in a car headed to Price to meet the next~

Teagan Blake Steele

Finishing out our collection of tiny angels, was a boy that was well worth the wait~

Riley Charles Perkins

Just in case you lost count, that was 11 babies.  E-L-E-V-E-N.  These were all born to family members, or my closest of friends.

My heart could almost explode with joy.  We have all been so blessed to receive these precious souls into our homes.  This year has been filled with snuggles and service.  It has been one of the best seasons ever, and I hope to never forget it!
