and then there were FIVE!!!

Meet the newest member of the Bray family, PAYTON ELIZABETH BRAY. She was born on May 17th & weighed in at 7 lbs. 8 oz – my smallest baby yet. She was born almost 3 weeks ago & we are head over heels in love with her!!! She is seriously my easiest baby yet (which is great for #3!) I cannot even believe it has taken me this long to post pictures but I think I forgot how busy I would be with a newborn. I thought for sure I would be up & running within a few days but this baby has knocked me off my rocker!  Our family & friends have been unbelievable to us right now. They have all come up to help, offered time for me to get away (or even just sleep), brought meals, taken my kids for the afternoon…. you name it they have done it! We feel so overwhelmed & so loved at the same time… I do not think I could have made it without them! Life is definitely different with three kids but we love it! Welcome to this crazy family, Payton!  We are so glad you are finally here & we love you sweet baby girl!
