Ha Ann, you are the toughest girl I know, I knew you could do it if you wanted to. For me who has been blessed with healthy and as you say, quick labors, which makes a HUGE difference, the process is so beautiful that I couldn't do it any other way if I were payed. Let me remind you, that as a little girl, I wanted 4. Then I eeked to 5. You said you wanted to have 7 like your mom, and I realized, though it sounded like such a stress even then....that 7 sounded like the number I wanted too. :) Then you get there and realize every mother is a saint...every pregnancy, delivery and especially raising the child a miracle if everyone makes it out alive and descent. :)
That said...the illusive number 7 stretches like heaven before me. I may never get there. But do you know four does not feel over the top as much as three, and Milly in particular is such a great help!
Can I say your family is so beautiful? Every last one of them, Dannon (sp?)on up to Camp, you and Brian. You've got some awfully sweet pics there, tender. Loving. You look delightfully babalicious, no surprise there, however. How do you pull it off?

Love ya,
Em

...That said, I have the children because each time that desire and emptiness of missing one comes, and not to get to the number of course. As you know the pain and the joy! From the angel-monsters! :) I shudder at loosing, each one brings a joy and brightness that could never be replaced. It is my privilege, and my own marathon, I guess I get sick joy in pain, but yes I do and I will continue forward! That said, if I can't have more than four, I will just be so grateful! I will adopt if the Lord wants me to and I feel that burning desire...but I love four! Happy arrival at 4 Ann, Happy Arrival, and good job too! P.S. I like the popping zits part however if they aren't mine, they aren't nearly as fun to watch.
