Life with Three

Tuesday, January 06, 2009 15 Comments A+ a-

A small sample of how our days are currently going with a four-year-old, 22-month-old, and a newborn. (This is BY-FAR the most unflattering picture of me. But cut me some slack, I'd just given birth the day before. Hmmmm... I wonder how long I can use that excuse.)



Reagan's birth story coming soon.

I’m a coffee drinking, book reading, laundry procrastinating, husband and children loving, mess of a woman who believes that chips and salsa can fix anything. We have chickens running around the backyard, a mountain of dishes in the sink, and on any given morning, I have at least 10 school forms that need my signature or initials. It’s a crazy life {I prefer to call it controlled chaos}, but its ours.

You can use that excuse at least until they are all in school! :)
You look great, and glad to hear all is going well.

First, it's not a bad picture.
Second, that excuse is good for a long time.

And, I think the more children you have, the longer it lasts :)

Full arms make a full heart! How wonderful, my friend.

Cut yourself lots of slack, Jenn- revel in her fingers and toes, delight in his graham-crackery fingers, and joy in Devyn's new words! It passes so quickly, you know this.

Love to you all! (((Jenn)))

I think a woman is most beautiful when she's surrounded by children.

Looking forward to that birth story...blessings....

Congratulations on Reagan's birth! The picture is great! And in her picture on the sidebar (Munchkin #1), Devyn looks so much like you in that picture! Your eyebrows, foreheads, face structures are so similar!
