Bella is Here!!!!!

Bella, you are welcomed very enthusiastically to this amazing world, the crazy Robbins world! We are so happy you are here to make our family a wonderful six! And, thinking about six, you were born at the most wonderful hour of 6:09 pm, which was very kind of you, much better than the am alternative! 

The story begins at 2 am Monday morning, May 19, when you woke your mom up, letting her know you were getting ready to come out and see what this crazy place you had heard so much about was really all about. Mom went to work from 5 to 7 am (yeah she is crazy, and I'm crazy about her). She came home and let me know she was having contractions and I wondered why she didn't let me know earlier! She knew I couldn't sleep if she had told me, and that was good enough for me.  She's so thoughtful like that. I went to work to get things ready for the MK Graduation that night, but eventually found out that I was useless because I was thinking about you so much! My kind boss let me off for the rest of the day, and the whole week even, so that I could spend more time with you! I quickly went home and around 2 pm your mom really started feeling that you were on your way. Then all of a sudden you were here, although your mom didn't think it was all of a sudden ;), and you have just made that day, and every day since so much better! You are so beautiful my Bella and I just love holding you and kissing you and thinking about you and I'm so glad to get to know you better and better each day. You have some amazing brothers to get to know and just the best mom anybody could ask for. You were 10 lbs 2 oz and 22 inches long when you came out. That makes you just a little smaller than Asher. That is pretty awesome my baby girl!

Okay, so we got this great red wagon at one of our Baby Showers and we have made it our amazing portable crib for the time being. Home birth is the great way to go, we were able to catch the Spurs game shortly after the birth and it was nice to just be home. Diane did so well through the labor and even had her water break in the bathroom, and not all over the carpet! She is amazing! 

This week has been a very tiring week, but a very fun and good week. Friday is always a welcome day in my book! So far this week I have taken my boys to the pool for some fun swimming time and then to Sonic and then Armstrong Park. It was 50 cent Corndog day at Sonic and that made it worth the trip alone. The pictures below are from our time at the park afterwards. With the boys gone in the afternoons, Diane has been able to get some good sleep! 

Well, my brain is foggy from being tired and I'm sure the pictures are really enough for most of you so I'm going to sign off here. Thanks for your prayers and support for my family. It is amazing having this precious little gift here with us now. I'm so blessed! 

Blessings to you all! 

Caleb and Diane and Creed and Asher and Liam and BELLA!!!!
