As soon as the picture above loaded into the blogger template, I couldn't help but laugh a bit. And simultaneously blink back tears. It still startles me - in the best possible way - to see three sweet little faces staring back from the screen.
For a long time, it seemed like I'd only be blessed to be the mama to one kiddo. Yet, here I am, happy mama to three :)
Becks is my spirited, sensitive, strong-willed, and smart as a whip 7-year-old. He's in a self-made band, Wikkid Vömit, takes guitar lessons once a week, plays baseball, and loves school. He is the best big brother to the babies and still loves to be snuggled into bed a night. His two front teeth have grown in recently, a reminder of how quick this parenting thing goes.
Faith is my fantastically adorable, ridiculously sweet, happy little joy bird. She'd spend all day outside if it were up to her, awaits the return of her Bubba from school everyday, still sneaks pacis at bedtime, and reminds us all what a blessing life is. She'll do big things someday.
And, sweet Benny is my squishy little baby muffin. He will be nine months in a couple of weeks. Bathtime, graham crackers, and running the hardwood in the walker are his jam. I don't mind the 4:30am nursing sessions, knowing those precious moments are limited. He refuses to belly laugh, and instead chuckles like your old fat uncle.
Thanking God they're mine.
Happy Wednesday :)
