Watch us go from a family with one child to a family with three. This is our story on how we got blessed with three amazing daughters! My story starts in the year 2015 I was 26 years old and had just found out I was pregnant! I remember this day super clearly my husband Joshua walked in on me while I took the test. I was angry cause I didn’t want to give false hope to him he wanted kids so badly around then. Three minutes passed and the two lines were so dark we jumped and cried happy tears! Finally are family will grow! It was December almost holiday season it was the best gift from god we ever got! I remember going to the a couple days before Christmas Eve! They measured baby up and told us that I was a month pregnant. This meant baby was going to be due sometime in august! We were so happy we decided to tell are family on Christmas when they came over about baby O’Brien ! Are family was so happy this was going to be there second grandchild! My older brother has a son who was two at the time of the announcement! At three months we started talking about nursery design and names. We still didn’t know the gender of the baby so we didn’t have many ideas. May was when we found out if baby was going to be a girl or boy. Baby O’Brien is a girl! We started immediately working on the nursery. I thinking back on it now hated her nursery look. I should have done something different not follow the ugly trend. It was a solid pink room with gold hearts and pink decor . My least favourite nursery out of my three kids. Back then I liked it but when baby was born I thought it didn’t suit her. After we found out the gender name was the hardest for us. For a while we were going with two unisex names we choose were Everest Cameron. That name combo stuck for two weeks. I ended up hating both of those names. Then came the name Alice. I liked that name a lot a lot back then that name doesn’t suit our little girl. I was going for the name Alice Olivia. My husband hates the name Olivia says it reminds him of a cheerleader. Don’t see that in the name and never will. Then he choose Alice Abigail. The double a name we didn’t love. So we drop Abigail and chose Esme. Alice Esme was our final name up into a week before I gave birth when my brother announced he was adopting a little girl named Alice. I cried cause I was mad he stole our name! We didn’t have a name anymore so when I went into labour in the 17th of august I felt screwed! The labour was 24 hours long so at 5:55am on august 18th we had our little girl! She was tiny 6 pounds 6 ounces and 16 inches. We spent four days in the hospital three of which we spent choosing a name. Adelaide Grace was a name we had on day two of four. I loved the name addy but not the ending on accident due to sleep deprivation and hospital meds I called her Addelane. Not Lynn like a lane. We loved that name 100 times more. So we had a first name we thought Grace was too common for her middle name we wanted a less girly name so Quinn was chosen it was a name becoming popular that year three days in hospital and we can finally stop calling baby girl baby girl. The spelling of her name unique but we love it Addelane Quinn was born happy and healthy!

Addy started going to daycare every Wednesday she was adjusting well. At this time we moved addy’s room and re did the nursery! We did an angle theme for Addelane’s toddler room it was super cute
For the nursery we did roses on all the walls this was one of my favourite nurseries!
Thinking names would be a huge issue we started immediately. We had only one name change we were going to call her Ella Wren but that name wasn’t perfect to us. We changed Ella to Elsie. A name we fell in love with! On October 10th 2018 I went into labour 48 hours later on october 12th at 2:30am I gave birth to Elsie Wren O’Brien!

Soon enough Addelane was 4 years old!
A couple months later Elsie was a year old!
Baby fever once again was high I knew I wanted one more baby! In November I found out I was a month pregnant! The new baby and Elsie will almost be two years apart! It was the perfect time two months later baby O’Brien’s gender was announced. We did a cake for the girls we all wanted a little boy but we got another girl! We waited to pick the name because last time was so easy! We did nursery first thing! And changed are other girls room to a toddler room and big kid room.

At five months is was name time we decided to ask Addelane to pick a name since she’s a pre school and meets people. She choose the name Dona. It’s her teachers name it wasn’t going to happen. We looked and looked and only ever like one name not enough as a first name though which was
Blake it took us a while other month for a first name until we found the name Aria. It was a fine deal Aria Blake is are last baby name! On July 1st my water broke 23 days early I went through 49 hours of labour and my little premature baby was born she was tiny weighed 5 pounds 6 ounces and was 12 and a half inches she needed preemie clothes and diapers for a while. But Aria Blake was born healthy and happy!
Now in the present this is what my family looks like Addelane is 5 Elsie 2 almost 3 and Aria 1
