Ashley Morgan Whitsell

Our new bundle of JOY
born Tuesday, October 9th at 1:03pm
7lb4oz & 20 1/2in

Devin holding her after she was plucked out
She is perfect.....
Her first bath and check up by our favorite
nurse Karen
(She was our nurse when we had Trey & when 
we saw her, we requested to have her again)
The kids watching Ashley get her first bath
Our first family photo
The kids are so smitten with their new sister
I love watching them love on her
Trey is the cutest with her.
he says "my baby Ashley" and tells everyone
he sees all about her
Just look at that smile, he can't get enough of her
When Trey was holding her she started to cry a little
so he started singing to her- the only song
he knows is the alphabet song so when he started
singing it to her we all laughed
Seriously, the cutest thing EVER!!!
READY to go home

We are adjusting well and enjoying life as a family of 5
There were so many blessing and answered prayers along the way 
to her being born that we really saw the hand of God leading and 
guiding us every step of the way.  We are so thankful for a healthy, happy baby
and that the kids are adjusting so well to having her around. We couldn't have asked for a better
transition....We pray the transition continues to be smooth.

Fire Man Trey

Trey is going to be a Fireman for 
Halloween and Devin 
has been working hard on perfecting
his costume.

It turned out great ......
It even got T-Man to smile
for a picture which is not an easy task!
I mean,
who wouldn't want him to 
rescue you!

Everyday I'm crafting

This girl spends hours, HOURS, making crafts. Stickers, glue, scissors, crayons, markers......If her mom would let her she would include glitter and more glue. I love her creativeness and desire to create!


It has been one HOT summer here. It was 96 yesterday so devin and I packed the kids up and headed to the beach. The kids had a great time & to be honest so did I.

We are laying low, enjoying life as 
a family of 4....
Crazy to think we will only be that

These are from my brother & Nicole's 
wedding back in June

Kaylie has been BEGGING to have her 
training wheels taken off and to learn how
to ride a bike
This morning she was so persistent that
Devin thought he would let her try
Ultimately she couldn't do it
and we didn't have enough time to devote to teaching
her, so he put the training wheels back on but
raised them up
October, after baby, is a good time to 
learn to ride a bike!

Costco has Halloween costumes
and Devin couldn't resist buying the fire fighter
one for Trey.....
and Trey was in HOG HEAVEN
It was 103 today and that boy did not 
take the costume off 
(except to let Kaylie try it on "really quickly")
Trey was SO serious
because, you know, being "fire fighter Trey" is
no laughing matter
I love that the kids love what Daddy does
