Lauren has taken her position as the eldest. She is strong and brilliant. She is sweet and kind. She looks after her brothers with grace and affection. When altercations arise she is level headed and knows how to do the right thing. She doesn't wear her heart on her sleeve. In fact, her tears are few and far between. However, she is the first to sob during sad movies or when someone close to her is hurting. She is always there for you when you've had a hard day with a smile and a happy thought.

Affectionately known as La-la and now The Big Sis.

Matt-Matt is born.

Matthew Boyd Haselden was born on Monday March 3, 2008. He arrived at 1:23pm just as his Father predicted. He weighed in at 7 pounds 8 ounces and was 21 inches long. Being the middle weight of all three of my children he still looked enormous on the warming table!! Michael and I were in absolute amazement and praised God for another beautiful brown haired baby! My Mom was able to witness Matthew's entrance into the world and was quite speechless-hard for my mom to be! The children were introduced to each other in the hospital room that afternoon where Lauren lovingly nicknamed Matthew, "Matt-Matt".

Our family of five came together on Wednesday night at home. The first days home are bliss! I have finally gotten what I've dreamed about my whole life...being the mother of three!

Here we go...again!! The Haselden Family is yet again expanding!! In celebration of our new bundle I'm going to attempt a family blog. We'll see how this goes...

Michael and I are finishing the FROG in preparation for our new little one expected to move in around March 2008. Yep, another Aries in the house! Don't we turn out creative children?!?!
We haven't been trying long to get pregnant. In fact, we really weren't trying at all. We made a decision in November to let the Lord decide. Well, He did! Such amazing grace!
Lauren is so excited she can't see straight! She is in constant vigil making sure James Patrick doesn't get too rowdy around Mommy's tummy. Jamie is a good big brother. He is patting my belly even with nothing there yet.
My Mom and Aunt were pleasantly suprised by the kids' artwork taped to the stair banisters reporting the new arrival. Michael's mom was floored when I brought her a fake photo album to work one night filled with "My First's-the Third Time" pictures.
We will share the news with Bill and Nance when we go to Atlanta next week so those of you in contact with them keep your lips zipped!
