A few summer time pics

Baby Hannah at 25 weeks

Cara and Charlie

We had a blast with my sister and her little man! They came to Little Rock Wednesday and stayed until Saturday. We stayed busy!!! In 2 full days we conquered the pool, the wonderplace, chick fil a, rivermarket splash zone, the Trolly, the peabody ducks, chuck e cheese, the tubes at Rock creek, and lots of fun hours at home. We are pooped but had so much fun! We will miss them a lot but are so thankful they made the trip:)

Charlie- 20 months
Emily- almost 17 months
Caroline- 2.5 years

It has been such a joy for Brad and I to pick the names of each of our precious little girls. Each one has their own special meaning and is unique to who they are. Caroline Grace, Emily Anne, and now we are happy to announce baby girl #3...

Hannah Elizabeth!

Hannah is Hebrew in origin and it means favored by God. We could not ask for anything more than that for her sweet little life. I have spent a lot of time reading the story of Hannah in the Bible- she was the mother of Samuel (and 5 others) and has an amazing story you can read about in 1 Samuel. It is our prayer that she will grow up to know the Lord and will in fact lead a life that is favored by God.

Elizabeth means the oath or fullness of God, God's promise, or God of plenty. We hope that Hannah Elizabeth will in fact see all the ways that God does fulfill his promises and that she sees her days full of God's blessings.

And of course...what could be cuter than thinking about her kindergarten teacher calling her name: Hannah Hobbs :) We have considered Hannah from the very start with our first pregnancy, so it only seems right that we finally got to use it. So, the Hobbs girls, in alphabetical order will be Caroline, Emily, and Hannah.

Baby Hannah-You are SO loved and cherished already at just 26 weeks! Caroline notices how you are growing and gets very excited about how you will soon join our family...she has big plans for her baby sister! Not a day goes by that we don't think about your addition to our family and how we are blessed beyond belief with such sweet, beautiful, little girls. We can't wait to meet you in October.

Purple Cow

We had a great weekend FREE of the stomach bug! My parents came to the rescue Friday night to allow me to fully recoup on Saturday. We had a fun afternoon today visiting a pet store, Barnes and Noble, and then a routine treat for ice cream at The Purple Cow. Caroline downed a HUGE ice cream sundae in record time and Emily counted sugar packets until her heart was content ( she isn't as big of an ice cream fan as her sister yet). Here are a few pics from our fun afternoon:)

Yesterday Gram and Grandpa took the girls to Chuck E Cheese and Toys R Us to get a few new toys...since we are in dier need of toys in this house. CGH got her long coveted vacuum cleaner and Emily got a shopping cart. Many, many minutes have been spent already with these new toys. CGH quickly discovered that vacuuming with a baby in arms is tough- so we solved the problem like any good mommy:)

Stomach bug. Has. Hit. Us. Hard. No other explanations needed for lack of blogging or would NOT be a pretty sight. However, many "interesting" memories are in the making;) sick babies are pitiful, but a sick mommy may take the cake.
This is pretty much what our days consist of-
