Everything's Coming up Rosie

One year ago today, we welcomed a new member into our family. Rosemary has filled our home with even more love, life, and laughter than we could imagine.

1 day old

Since she was born, I have felt very distinctly like our family is full and complete. Maybe I needed just a tad more noise and mayhem in my life, or a bit of pink to offset the blue, or maybe the interaction between three children just feels more natural for me having grown up in a three child household myself. Whatever the case is, Rosie was meant to be and we celebrate and cherish her. 

She has grown and changed so much in the past twelve months and we are still getting to know this little person more day by day.

1 Year! 
This is what we have learned about her in the past year: she is full of spunk and life and thrives when surrounded by her family, especially her doting brothers. She is very happy to be the third child, since her favorite pastime is to watch her brothers crazy antics while laughing and clapping in delight. When she is not chasing after her brothers or exploring her world, she loves being held and cuddling.

She is always trying to do what her brothers are doing, sitting, crawling, walking, and copying their sounds earlier than I would have guessed. She also has a stubborn streak and a bit of a temper. Not too sure who she got that from!

Me too!
She loves the outdoors and finding a good patch of mud or sand to get dirty in (and eat) or a plant to rip up (and eat). I can't wait until she is old enough to put that to use helping me in the garden! 

Rosemary, you are loved and we can't wait to see what the future has in store for you!

What a blessing she is! I think the interaction between three children really brings out their personalities! Just think if James and Diana had never had you!
