I am so grateful to be a mother-espescially to these wonderful people! I love them so much! And I love that Wil desires and provides the way that I can stay home with them and be their mother in every sense of the word! Thank you, Babe! I love my family!
I am so grateful to have such a father as Wil is! He is very dedicated to leading our family in rightousness, and is so much fun! Many of you have not seen his funny-ness! He cracks us up. Many dinner hours have been filled with laughter because of Daddy. WE love you Daddy!

Lucy Graham joined our family on June 23, and we are so happy to have her in our arms! She was (and still is) very small, she only weighed 6lb 4oz (our smallest by far!) was 18 in. long with a 13 1/4 cm head circumference. The delivery went great! (I was induced, for scheduling sake- Wil was still on track/school) On her way out though she scratched her face pretty good with three of her fingernails. It was sad and it got a lot of attention by her siblings. "Poor Lucy!" They all adore her and want to help and hold her, often -they are a big help! It was fun for me when they came to the hospital after she was born to see her for the first time. They were all so interested in all of her! They also brought her and me gifts, every time they came to the hospital. They were homemade gifts, or something found in the house-I just love it! My mom came to help us and stayed for about ten days! We are so grateful she did! She was a big help and did a lot of fun park outings with the kids, and they were very sad to see her go! We love you Nana, and thank you SOOOO much! Lucy is so very sweet, and easy going, and handles the craziness of this house quite well! WE LOVE LUCY! (These pictures range from four days before she was born (me on Father's day) to Lucy being about three weeks old.)

Here are pictures of Eliza's day. She was so happy that it was her day and she enjoyed it! For school I made cake balls for her class and she got to pass them out to each child. Then on the way home, on the bus, they sang to her. She requested lasagna for dinner, so that is what we ate and then we opened presents and had cake and ice cream. It was a great day and we are so happy to have Eliza in our family! It would be so different with out her. We love you, Pony! :)
So we have been asked the question more than once, "Where is the baby going to sleep?" We live in a basement apartment because Wil is in school and it is much more affordable! We have been blessed with a large basement apartment that we have lived in during the whole time we have lived in this town. We have three bedrooms and 1 bath. Before now we had all of the children in one room with the extra room for our food storage/small guest room. Well all of the children are still in one room but we re-arranged their bedroom about a month ago in order to fit all five of them, once the baby is a few months old! We purchased a twin mattress and a bunkboard in order to make it work and the children love it! :) I am so grateful for a large room that they can all fit into! :) I am sure they will all have many memories of sharing this room for years to come! I really like the new arrangement. It feels more open. :)

Brigham has been very into babies lately and has his own baby he takes to bed with him but come the end of June we will have a real baby for him to hold! Five little Grahams! And more than that Hyrum and Eliza's finger crossings paid off because on Tuesday the 15th we found out that it is a GIRL!! We are all so thrilled! Everything looks great and I am feeling great! It was a rough first 3 and a half months or so but we are past that now and enjoying the anticipation of a new little spirit joining our family, a little princess!
