Then when I became pregnant with Miss Leah, I prayed for a little boy for Ronnie and Derek. Lindsay was still young enough that she didn't seem to "need" a sister as much as Derek thought he "needed" a brother. And besides I had my two girls even if one was in heaven, Ronnie and Derek would enjoy another boy so much. However, God knows us better than we even do! He knew deep down that I yearned for another baby girl to put dresses on and have all the dreams that I had with Hannah, but I never wanted to express this because I feared that Ronnie was right and I was trying to replace Hannah. But God knew what he was doing, when we found out it was a girl, we all were overjoyed, no one was upset. It seemed as if we all secretly wanted a little girl. And she has been everything we've dreamed of! I was able to nurse her a lot longer than any of the other children. And she seemed to take right to it, I never had any difficulty at all. She was such a peaceful baby. She slept through the night at 7 weeks, loved to be held and talked to, and was always happy.

This picture is my absolute favorite of the girls!!
It was not planned in anyway, they just happened to do this at the same time!!!
Trick-or-Treating is hard on a girl!
