Announcing Emmeline Eve

Emmeline Eve joined our family today at 11:07 AM weighing in at 8 lbs 12 oz and 21.5 inches. We are thrilled with our new bundle of joy!

The happy family minus Keara who is fighting croup at home with Grandma B. Asher shows his true feeling about having two younger sisters. Grandaddy Dave adores each of his 18 grandchildren!

Asher is 3 yrs old!

Asher loved all his presents! Can you tell I'm pregnant?! I am having another baby girl in November. We are excited (even though it's a bit of a surprise). :)

His cousins (Kezia 4, Zander 2 and Sabra 6) came and brought the slip and slide. It made the party so much fun. Thanks Nat!

Lovin' the slip n' slide!

Ben loved the slip n' slide as much as the kids (or maybe more, I couldn't tell)!

This is cousin Phineas (7 months) and my baby Keara who is almost 1, what cute babies! My dad and mom are holding the babies. They are in Honduras right now picking up DJ from his mission. I love my family so much!

My in-laws (Becky and Jerry) putting a band-aid on Asher's foot while his cousins watch closely. Asher is so spoiled with love. Thanks everyone who came to the party, we love you!

The Latest With the Lopshires

All 4 of us on a Sunday afternoon. This is the best picture we have been able to get of Asher and Keara at the same time. It's been fun and busy having two kids, but I couldn't be happier

Keara at 5 months being held by our good friend Mary. Don't you just want to kiss those cheeks!

Asher looks angelic when he's sleeping! And... yes that is a pink binky. It was late, we couldn't find any- so I ran to the nearest store (Walgreens) and all they had were pink and purple binkys. I wonder if he'll look back at these pictures when he's older and say, "Mom, I can't believe you let me suck on a pink bikny!"

I tell Asher to smile showing his teeth and this is the cute face we get! He is a great big brother to Keara- the other day a little girl he didn't know started rocking the car seat while Keara was in it- totally innocent, but not to Asher. He ran right up to her and pushed her away and said, "my sister!" I was trying not to laugh since the little girl was crying laying flat on the ground :)

Welcome Keara Lynn

Here we are! Keara Lynn was born Aug 1 weighing 6lbs 5 oz and was 19.5 inches long. I made it to 40 weeks ( with Asher I only made it 36) and the VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean) was successful! I feel really good and would have to say the second time around is a lot easier...

Asher is the one to keep me on my toes. All in all I would have to say that he is adjusting pretty well though- he's 2, so I'm sure it's only normal to expect him to point his laser gun straight at her mouth and shoot... it makes a loud noise too (he got it from my sister Nat and her kids for his b-day- I will return the favor when my nephew Zander turns 2) haha!

Though this isn't the most flattering picture of me, I thought that Keara looked adorable so wide awake :)

Sunday Best :)

Asher is such a fun boy - and will be a great big brother- that's right, I am having a baby girl!! We are due Aug 2nd, but she'll probably come sometime in July. We are so excited and I am starting to feel a lot better- the first 18 weeks were pretty rough. It wasn't all rough, I mean I did lose 10 lbs! (no worries, the doctor assured me that since I was overweight when I got pregnant I am okay) haha!

Aren't they handsome?! Ben is really good at making Asher laugh, it's fun to see them- Asher is a definite daddy's boy!

Ben told Asher to pose, but Asher just wanted to see the pictures on the camera :)

Happy New Year!

These are some family pictures taken by aunt Marjie. They are a few months old, but you all know how great I am at updating my blog, hehe. Asher is making the funniest face, I don't even think it looks like him. He is really good at saying "no" and a few other words, we are working on "yes" for now. It's so fun to be his mom and it keeps me busy.

I will update with some more pics soon. Life has been exciting and the Lord has been good to us, so I really have nothing to complain about! Hope you are all doing well and know that I think of you, even though I don't keep in touch that great all the time. :)

Fun with the Fam!

The first 3 pics are from Wednesday at Gardner Village- it is the Witch Festival and we have been going for the last few years. My parents are with all 12 grandkids! Little Megan was born to Matt and Melissa at the end of Sep- I love how Emily is holding her like it's no big deal. Zachary was born in June and now Amanda will have a baby in April! My nieces and nephews mean so much to me and of course my own baby means so much, too :)

The other pics are of Asher and me at McDonalds in Seattle where we saw my cousin Tabitha and her husband and kids (I didn't get pics of them :( ) , then the rest are just cute pics of Ash-ba-dash (as his cousins like to call him)!
