Welcome Isla Eloise!

Isla Eloise O'Donnell
Wow, I really need to keep up with this blog. Life has been so crazy this past year. New job for Sean, new state, new home and as of the 22nd of Feb., new baby! This is Isla Eloise. She was born on 2/22/16 at 4:18am, weighing 8 lbs 6 oz and 21 inches. She is our 9th baby, and last (I know I've said that before, but this time we mean it). She was a total suprise. I had no idea I was pregnant. When I found out, I have to be honest, I was not happy. We had 8 children already and we were happy with that number. Another baby meant we would have to move and had no idea where to go. We needed a home with at least 5 bedrooms in our price range. In the state we were living, that just wasn't possible. So, Sean had to make a decision to change jobs, which meant relocating to a state neither one of us were thrilled to move to, but there was an amazing job waiting for him there with a huge house we could all live in comfortably and it is in our price range. So, 6 months pregnant, we relocate to a new home and try to start over.

And here we are! I am slowly recovering. Not as quickly as I would like. I've have to be extra careful because I am at risk for hemorrhaging, with having as many children as I've had. All I can do is homeschool the kids. Poor Sean is working full time, making dinner and keeping up with my chores. I feel so guilty that I can't really help. I really look forward to spring break, so I can get a little extra rest.

Anyhow, this is all I have time for writing for now. The baby will be up soon for another feeding. I hope you are all doing well. Have a great weekend!
